the kitten longing

028

Browsing old kittens-photos I realise I very much miss having kittens. Almost four years since last. Can't say I miss the consumption of cat food and cat litter, the endless cleaning of litter boxes and the hassle of screening (gut feeling) of presumptive buyers. Even if, granted, the majority of my kitten buyers have been wonderful, caring, sensible, cat adoring people, just the opening up home for strangers to come kitten looking is... well, rather tiresome.

But I miss the adorableness of tiny cats, the purring, the cuddling, the innocence, the pitter patter of miniscule paws, the crazy frolicing, the beauty for the eye, the comfort for the soul. And the naming of clever names.

I'm thinking that the awesomeness of 2011 as predicted (by undersigned) should hold kittens too. What do you think about that, Ms Dotty Tummy and Ms Li'l Shiny Black Panther, is that a good idea?

Fostering for a local rescue could be an option. Shelters always need foster homes, and it gives you a kitten fix without having the long-term commitment. :-)

ah, that certainly is an option, kea, but i'm more of a money-contributor to the shelters than a foster-mom i think... even if any cat is a precious one, needless to say, the breeding of british shorthairs, and the genetics of it all, has given me so much during so many years. not quite ready to give that up for good...

Any day with a cat in it is instantly improved. Or so our Jazz and Jewel tell us (and it is hard to argue).
