Forget Namibia, the neighbor's garage will do just fine...

So my friend David gets this kitten. Are you ready for it? Be sure, because it's REAL freakin' cute....


I know. I KNOW. When I held this minuscule thing for the first time my ovaries kicked me in the gut and started screaming about babies. And I told them that I needed to start with the feline species (mostly because adopting a kitten doesn't require those pesky things like sperm or husbands or at least serious serious boyfriends). And also a kitten knows how to piss in a litter box from the day he's born.

So here I am, practically asking everyone I see in the street where I could find kittens, and my friend Elise drops the bomb the other night that a strange cat wandered into her neighbor's garage and had 4 kittens last weekend. Which is essentially the same way we got this lovable tub of lard 8 years ago:


And the best news is that there's an orange one among them. Negotiations are currently underway to see if they'll keep one for me and if they'll keep him/her til the end of August when I'm definitely in the country for a while. And of course, I'll have to promise to do humanitarian work in his home village because that's just how adoption goes down these days.
