Woman 2

Introducing Truman and Roosevelt!

On Saturday, my mom and I went to Meow Cat Rescue in Kirkland and adopted these boys. We had seen them online before going on vacation, and after we got back I talked with the shelter about coming in to see them.
And - surprise, surprise! - they came home with us.
Truman (orange and white) and Roosevelt (black and white) are eight-year-old brothers. Truman is more extroverted than Roosevelt; he loves cuddling and being petted. Roosevelt is more introverted, but he has been the leader in exploring the house and in smacking Ellie around. Both of them are extremely sweet, and settling in well.
Truman and Roosevelt are both special needs cats. Truman has a skin condition on his paws, and Roosevelt has eye issues. They are also both declawed, which has been a learning experience. It is interesting: Roosevelt will smack people when he doesn't like the way that they pet him, whereas Truman uses his paws to pull people's hands towards him. They both enjoy 'scratching' things, and Truman makes bread more than any cat I have ever known. He'll even make bread in the air if he's lying on his side.
Neither of them are lap kitties, but we're trying to let them know that what they want to do is okay (and that they are totally welcome on our laps!).

Pictures behind the cut!Collapse )

I am so glad that we have had the chance to adopt these boys. They're wonderful cats, and I am looking forward to see how they continue to settle into their new lives.

London (and surrounding area)

(Once again: if there is anything that you want to see more of, just ask!)
After Iceland, we went to London!

I was successful in getting my pictures off my second camera card - which my laptop did not like - so that is a plus. The next post to go up will be York!
Also soon to come: some pictures of our newest Very Special additions to the household.

Iceland is beautiful. Beautiful, and a little alien. Unfortunately, we only spent one day there.
If you'd like to see more pictures of anything, tell me! I have others of just about everything (and especially of the city from above and the fault where the tectonic plates diverge), and I would happy to share.

I am hoping to have pictures from London up in the next few days.

suitcase heart.

I can remember when I first saw you
You said in my photograph I looked more faraway
I laughed and smiled and didn't say,
'I am a bit afraid to be here.'

A few weeks ago, we had my beautiful girl put to sleep.


I found these pictures, from early January, on my laptop today, and they make me smile.


It's weird, at home. Weirder for my mom, who is there all week, than for me (since I'm only there on the weekends).
She - we - had a fabulous (almost) twenty years together, and she's not in pain anymore.
It's okay.

(Also, A+ for her standing on the silly knitting book.
'What do you need a silly knitting book for, anyway?' she seems to be asking. 'You have a cat!!'
It is hard to argue with things like that!)

The new camera and I are attempting to become friends.
I am not sold on it, but I am more sold on it than I was yesterday.

color is a little more accurate in the first picture.
