With all the challenges of My Stampin Studio right now, a wonderful diversion occurred this past weekend. After my Isabel (my beloved little pug) died last August, I didn’t think another fur baby would ever fit into the family. However, about a month ago my family started to give me a nudge to consider adopting another cat to be a buddy to Sasha (a dear kitty we adopted 3 years ago).
After looking at adult cats for several weeks and waiting for the remodeling noise to die down in our home, we brought home “Boris,” another Russian Blue (likely a mix) this weekend from the local shelter. He’s been cooped up since Janauary with little positive human interaction. However, in spite of being understandably shy, he has slowly begun to trust and emerge as an amazing cat. My husband, Scott, is coaxing him out of his cage in the photo above.
Boris gets more comfortable each day. My husband, a die hard cat lover, is showing him around his new space (Caroline’s room) shortly after he came out of his cat carrier. Not only has he emerged as a lovable boy, he is playing, eating and hanging out on my daughter Caroline’s bed. Thankfully, my daughter is home from college this week to offer 24/7 love and encouragement. The next big step is to introduce him slowly to Sasha (also known as the “princess” of the Fish household). She is so curious about what’s happening in Caroline’s room. Her paw often shows up under the closed door where Boris is getting used to his new digs, just to remind us that she’s on the other side and needs plenty of love as well. Trust me. She gets an abundance of love.
