we got kittens!

A week ago, Susan and I went to Feria Libre with Trish (the cat whisperer - haha!) and bought two little kitties! I chose an orange and white boy kitten (who cost $5), and Susan picked out a little black girl kitten (who was only $3). It took them some time to get used to their new surroundings, and are only recently really getting to know each other (there was a lot of hissing and growling going on for a bit), but they warmed up to Susan, Dad, Nick, and myself quite quickly, thank goodness. It took us a couple of days of debating, but we all agreed on their names: Daxter (Dax) for the orange (after a video game Nick plays, Jak & Daxter), and Abby for the black (named after Abby on NCIS). We still haven't quite gotten them into a solid routine yet, they haven't gotten the hang of eating when their food is down, they want it all the time! And of course, they sleep all day (almost always on us!), so they like to meow up a storm when we all go to bed because they want attention. But I'm glad there are pets around again, I was missing having a furry friend about after so many years of there being one (or a few). I still miss the dogs, Capri and Ed (and Chloe, my grandparents cat!) a lot, but I really love these new little balls of fluff!

I've been a tad snap-happy with them, so here's a ton of Instagram shots of the kittens, and a couple from my camera:
