Me and my mommy went kitty hunting yesterday, moreover just to scope out what was available locally and stuff, annnnnd I fell in love with an AWESOME little black and slightly tabby/occicat patterned boy! (He could or could not outgrow that though, its too soon to know just yet) He’s just barely 8 weeks old, has blue and gray eyes (not sure exactly what color they will be when he’s older, but my bet is on blue-ish, cause I sense a little Siamese in him and w00t!) I’ve named him Onyx, cause he looks like a little Onyx jewel, and his eyes look like little sapphire gems, so I thought Onyx and the symbolism of a jewel fit bahaha. He’s already responding to it actually, so I think it’s a good name. And it equals out to 21, 2+1=3, so I think he won’t have any bad karma like poor Salem.
He is practically Salem incarnate, though. I can’t get over how very much like him he is. He kisses, he shnuggles, he purrs almost constantly (especially with me), he does the paw thing, where he grabs my fingers and clenches them, he kept me up with playing on me and sleeping on me practically all night (I had to kip in the office with him, cause he whines if I leave him alone and I didn’t have time to kitty proof my room, though I’m sure any effort in that department would be a pure and utter waste of time, cause he’ll just figure out the weak spots and trample over all my barriers and =O) and he whines and whines and whines if I’m not devoting every ounce of my attention to him. And he’s smart. I mean, REALLY freaking smart. And mischievous. He’s a SlytherClaw, like me! xD
Well, here’s a piccie!:
I’ll try and get more, but... I may have to sharpen my photography skills and train this little bugger to sit still long enough for the camera to take a decent photo (the idiot who designed it made it to where the photo isn’t taken immediately after pressing the button, but five seconds thereafter, and the only way I’m getting a good photo of Mr. hyper over here is if God himself paused time – and if I can figure out how to disable flash too, so his eyes don’t go quite so radical as above LMAO).
M’not doing any photos of me and him together until my chipmunk cheek stops being swollen on the left side from the wisdom teeth surgery I had on Saturday though, cause I look absolutely hideous. Which reminds me, Nitrous Oxide before Intravenous General Anesthetic kicks butt! It’s like O_________O “HOMG I’M FLYING!!!” And then they stick you with an IV (Which, they had to do a total of six times, each with a five minute digging period before finally striking liquid gold in the opposite arm from whence they began - they even tried my wrist, and failed, for God's sake! *Sigh* Extremely small and roll-prone veins suck. And then like, you wake up all “huh? Done already?!” xD)
So yeeeeeeep. Just recouping and trying to get used to mummying a little kittykinns again. This of course will mean no working or hard-core college time for about four to six months, possibly even a year, cause I just can’t leave him alone to have free reign of the house for hours on end until he’s at least half a year and a little bigger. It would just be naive and foolish for me to do that, particularly since my mom’s Chihuahua, Shadow, doesn’t seem particularly taken with him... yeeeeeaaaaah. Work/college can wait. =D
I really can’t wait until we find the right kitty to be Onyx’s little brother within this or the next week, and no longer than a month hopefully. I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll be able to find a classic silver tabby/occicat domestic short hair somewhere (most likely from the pound), cause I think Magnus/Cobalt/Glacious for a kitty like that would just totally rock the casbah. But I’m in no hurry, this little one’s keeping me plenty busy for now... LOL.
Well, I hope you’re doing well my Touzle and that everything’s going good! Lemme know how things are and stuffers. *HuggleLovethClingethlikewhoa* ♥♥♥♥♥
