My girlfriend and I have an important announcement, we're making an important and significant step in our relationship. More important than our trip abroad (to China) later in the year. We've got a cat.
Yup. You know you're embarking on a serious and solidifying stage of your relationship when you and your girlfriend settle on a pet.
You may have already seen the photo on the homepage, you can also check out a couple of extra pic's that we took this evening. She's pretty damn cute. She's a weenie little tortoiseshell. Meli and I picked her out from a whole bunch of cats - young and old - at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital.
And BTW, thanks heaps to the Lort Smith - they were great. Very helpful and friendly staff who care heaps about the poor discarded little kitty's. And what a broad bunch o' kitties; there was the strung out one from Coburg who had been doused with dog liquid flea repellant (which makes cats fit and get sick) - it had a shaved bit on it's leg where they had given it relaxants. Then there was the older cats who had out lasted their owners. Despite reports, there was also a ton of little kittens. Damn! But we settled on our kitty, who is about a year old and appears to have been abandoned.
So, now that you're past is behind you (Broadmeadows Bunnings carpark and bin scraps) - welcome to the family Pixel.
