I'm pretty sure I have a problem. Is there an Animals Anonymous out there somewhere? Tonight, I merrily *well, not merrily, it's been a rotten, rotten week and all I wanted to do was turtle at home* went to the stable for my jumping lesson. Once there I stumbled upon the horrid news that someone had dropped a mama cat and her three babies. It took the owner and staff an hour and a half to get them caught and safe in the furnace room.
It's pretty much safe to say that I'm not real fond of dumpers. I think it's irresponsible and cruel. The mom is a gorgeous tortoise marked kitty with a bib and white toes. The three babies, all male, all have tortie markings, and two are dark, with one grey. They were darling little creatures.
And I should not have been exposed to their sweetness. Because I folded like a lawn chair. On the weekend I'll be getting the place ready for "George" to come home. He's a doll. He snuggled up and purred, and purred, and purred for me.
Here's a picture of George - taken with my BlackBerry. Expect better pictures soon...
