We have big hearts and a big home and there is no way we're going one more day without sharing these things with innocent creatures who have need.

We welcome two kittens (sisters - I think they're both girls. I hope they're both girls...)

They're so cute!

They're a bit skittish as they've never seen a bathtub before, or a toilet or a bathroom or an oven, a refrigerator - a kitchen.

(Strangely enough, despite never having seen a kitchen, they both ran toward the noise of the can opener...I never fed them canned cat food so how do they know? Is the sound of a can opener imprinted on their DNA? Mama cat was adopted from a shelter and their papa is a tom so...)

They are adorable and won't leave the living room and dining room. They have a whole house to explore! They've never been inside a structure with more than two rooms before.

The cat moved.

After I go through his violent behavior, hypothyroidism, enlarged heart, crushed pills every 12 hours, radioactive poop, radioactive cat, countless throwing up spells - after all the sickness and biting, he gets cured and then moves.

I'm so sad. He wasn't very happy with the thought of driving cross state lines and evidently, he meowed (whined) for over three hours straight in an enclosed car, driving my poor sister into a frazzled state of mind.

He's gone. Twelve and a half years of this bundle and joy, minus the time I hightailed it to Hollywood. Gone.

But he's alive and he's (finally) healthy so I'm not sad, sad. Just missing him sad. It's not like I can e-mail him. Well, I could.

It's not like I can follow his Twitter.

It'd just be, 'Meow-mrrrr' anyway so I guess it's just as well.
