Having a Baby!
For some months now I have been going thru something many women go thru. It's never been quite so strong for me tho and finally I have come to believe, it's the right thing to do. Yes. I want one more baby. I mean, why not? The house is big enough, I can afford it, I am a great Mother. Of course, I am not having this miracle myself, I want to adopt. So I started looking. I knew exactly what I wanted ( girl, of course ) I even knew colour.
It took a long time. She had to come from a loving home, not some sort of Baby Factory. After many many nights of searching, I finally found her HERE . There she was. The Family in fact, had six they wanted to adopt out. I have spoken to the Family, the terms are agreed on.
And here she is.....
She is just 5 weeks and will be coming to me at the end of January. She is a pure Bengal, silver marbled. They don't seem to have the first picture of her up on the website now, but if you had seen her at 2 weeks, I tell you, there is not a one of you who wouldn't have done the same.
Here she is with her Mom. ( Whose name is Saphyra. Hey, her Dad's name is Brockenmoor WhoDunnit of Magical Summit. And I thought Freaky Venus Seaweed was an odd name )
I am in love. Obviously.
I have some other sound reasons for adding yet another Bengal. Freaky Venus is WILD, and is driving poor Misty Girl kind of crazy. Misty Girl likes her, and lets her wash her for time on end, and even plays with her. But Venus' idea of " Playing" soon deteriorates into a game of " I am a fierce hunter and you are my prey. Prepare to die. " And I think Venus needs something more to do all day than shred toilet paper, scatter my belongings, pull down my drapes , hide my glasses, scream for MORE food , and try and remove her nail covers and attack me when I get home. Or try and sleep. Or wake up to feed her.
So what do you do? Easy. Get another Bengal. Seems clear to me.
Actually, I kind of found a Kitty that might just be cooler than a Bengal, but at $20,000 , no, not a typo, the Ashera seemed a bit excessive. See them HERE.
( Yes, I see you out there, shaking your heads, saying darkly to yourselves, " Trouble will come of this ..." )
She even was born in the town my Mom and Grandmother were born in, an hour away from where I was born in New York. Fate, I say.
Life should never be dull. And I do not think mine will be.
Now, what to name her.....
And oh, yes, I told Venus tonight , and she is over the moon. Here is her Over the Moon face...
Love and Freaky Kitties,
