Hello bookstagram! Once again, I’ve announced something on my bookstagram that I forgot to do on my blog. My bad!
In short…I ADOPTED A NEW CAT!
You may remember last year when I took a short (well, it was supposed to be short, but it turned out to be much longer than expected) when I had to put my sweet book kitten Tamsin down after she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. It was an incredibly hard thing to do, and while I knew I wanted to adopt another cat in the future, I knew it wouldn’t be for a very long time.
Last Friday, I went to a new pet store that opened because my friend was just hired as a manager their. She told me that their were a lot of cute cats in her store and I should check them out. I went, because I wanted to support the store my friend was working at, and I’ll never turn down an opportunity to look at some cats.
I only planned to look, since in my mind I was still convinced I was going to be adopting a kitten, when I saw a sweet little calico who jumped down from her viewing area to see me at the glass screen. I immediately fell in love with her, and had to walk around the store for half an hour to make sure I was making the right decision. I then went to see her, and knew she was the cat I was meant to adopt.
She was originally named Maggie, but I renamed her Cordelia (after the character in King Lear) because I love giving animals names from literature! She’s incredibly sweet and still adjusting to her new home, but I think she likes it here.
So that’s what I’ve been doing these past week, helping a sweet kitty get adjusted and over the moon to have a sweet book cat back in my life again! What have you been up to bookworms?
