we adopted our new baby (kitten) today!
i've been talking about wanting one for a month or two and we've been looking at pics on the internet the last couple days. j really wanted a puppy but i don't think we have time or especially space for one.
the boyfriend just got his first paycheck from his new job yesterday. he'd been unemployed for six weeks or so and has been relying on me for a lot of financial things. last night he took me out to an expensive dinner at dave & buster's and an expensive hotel room--both of which are more than i think he/we can afford, but he won't tell me how much was spent.
on the way home, he stopped in a parking lot and asked if i wanted to look at furniture or cats. "um... cats!"
she's not the one originally picked out online but he was going to be a long drive and big hassle to get. after i decided, the lady who works at the shelter said that her name is jessica, and the he decided it was meant to be. fits right with jesse (him) and jennifer (me). we were going to name her scout, though. the name hasn't been definitively decided. opinions?
she's three months old and has spent a lot of the day exploring her new home and hiding, but is beginning to get comfortable enough to come up to us and pounce and play.
