So I’ve been dithering for a while on getting a cat – I knew I wanted one, but I just hadn’t found one that I KNEW was meant to be mine yet. Until yesterday. I had a rough day at work and decided to go to the shelter on my lunch break to pet some kitties and see who was around. And of course I met the most perfect little lady and promptly put in an application.
Everything should be processed today so I’m hoping to jet out of work early and pick her up! Her name is currently Tinkerbell, but I’m changing it to Beezie (as in Beezie Madden! ;)). I’m wondering what everyone suggests for the first few days at home to ease the adjustment period. She is a mellow kitty who can get a little overwhelmed by lots of activity when she’s in a new place (per the shelter staff), so I’ve already decided it will just be me and the boyfriend at the house until she’s settled. But otherwise, does anyone have suggestions for making a smooth transition?
And just because she’s adorable, here’s her listing from the shelter website! She’s been there since October, poor thing, mostly because she likes to hang out in her bed instead of run around the main cattery floor. I’m obsessed with her little folded up ear!
