Introductions are due….
It all began one rainy night in October of 2009. I had recently seen a litter of adorable kittens and being a cat person at heart, decided I needed to adopt one. I made my trip to the pet store, trying to figure out what to buy as I hadn’t shared living space with a cat since high school. Well over a hundred dollars later, I needed to go pick up my bundle of fur and even more difficult, decide which one to pick! I knew I wanted a female because I already bought a pink kitten collar. So I traveled out to the country to pick out my illegitimate barn cat that I would inevitably turn into a pampered house cat. There were two females in the litter and as I’m making the heart wrenching decision, of course the one that gave kisses and ultimately won my heart was also the trouble maker that was scratching furniture 10 seconds before. I knew then, there would be a battle of wills in the near future. That was adoption day. I brought home an 8 week old tuxedo kitten, who remained nameless for the next two and a half weeks since I couldn’t decide on the perfect name. I, in turn, decided on the most imperfect name, Tinkerbell.
