New Additions

I am very happy to say that we have two new additions to our family.  A girl I met a few years ago was looking into adopting Sphynx kitties.  It turns out she was allergic to them, and the allergies grew worse over the last couple years.  I ran into her again about a week ago.  She told me about her allergies and said she was considering giving her two Sphynx cats up for adoption.  I felt so bad that she had to even consider this.  I told her I would certainly take them into my home if she needed to let them go.  I received an email from her the next day asking if I was still willing to take on two more Sphynx kitties.  I told her I certainly would, and noted that they would be cherished as much as my other naked girls.  She sent me a picture which I admired multiple times a day for the last week.  We made arrangements to have the girls dropped off at my apartment last night.  I even asked my Team Leader for the day off today, so I could spend more time with them.  I asked him if I could take it as either adoption leave or family related, but he didn’t go for it.  I guess he remembered the time that I tried to put my car’s windshield replacement through our drug plan, under eyeglasses.


Anyway, the little angels have arrived and they are absolutely adorable!  They are currently in our other apartment across the hall, in order to have a slow and less traumatic integration into their new home with their new siblings.  I did lock Mya and Abby in the bedroom today while I brought the other kitties over to explore their new digs.

They wandered around for a bit, then I took them back to the other apartment.  I decided to bring them over again a couple hours later.  This time they both hid under the couch.  Almost two hours later, I decided I better let Mya and Abby out of the bedroom in case they had to go to the bathroom or eat.  They both knew something was up.  Mya soon spotted the two visitors under the couch:

Abby, on the other hand, just sat on top of the cable box, being her typical, googly self:

I had to eventually put Mya and Abby back in the bedroom while I lifted the couch to remove the other kids.  Back to the other apartment they went – that was enough excitement for one day!  They are just resting now.  I’ll go visit them every commercial or so….

I may take more vacation time tomorrow to be with my new girls.  I may try a more “formal” introduction to the other kitties tomorrow.

Today’s symptoms:  Feeling pretty good.  I had more energy today than I’ve had in a few weeks, but I’m still experiencing frequent body aches and pains.  I started exercising again last night.  I did 30 minutes on my recumbent bike yesterday and 60 today – yea!
