A somewhat mundane, bit pointless thing I would like to share: we got a cat yesterday!
She was called Iina at the animal shelter, and that is nice enough name to keep. She has a little white spot on her neck, otherwise she is totally black. Even though she is an adult, she is very small; the lady who brought Iina from the shelter didn’t know her age or her breed. It seems that Iina had planned to be a teen mom, as she was pregnant and had to have an abortion when brought to the shelter from the farm where she was found.
Apparently Iina was shocked to see our place, because the moment her paws touched the floor, she sprinted to the bathroom, hid under the bathtub and stayed there for two hours. Hunger and thirst eventually brought her out, and now she is a very friendly and talkative little kitty, constantly roaming our apartment and discussing the madly interesting things she finds during her exploration.
Today she’ll have to stay home alone while we are at work; let’s hope she behaves nice also when no-one is looking… (we locked her into the kitchen to limit the possible damage; too cruel?)
