Kris Gave Me A Pass on Killing Me…

Because I wanted to bring home a new kitten. Cute 12 week old red-point Siamese. At first glance I thought it was a Birman, which we have been looking for. Close, very close in looks. But she gave me a pass at my attempt because I’m recovering from the nasty virus and not thinking clearly. (grin)

So we still just have Cheeps (a Birman) and Gavin (a part Siamese). Pictures below.

And another reason, Gavin, with his Siamese exposed, ran around the house the entire time I was sick yelling because a human had the bed. We do not need two opinionated Siamese.

I did not get all my email answered. Sorry about that. Will get caught up tomorrow. For now enjoy the cat pictures.

Cheeps (Pure red-point Birman)

    Nice looking cat. One of my hesitations to getting a cat — I know my boys would love one — is that I’d hate to pick the wrong personality. Growing up, I had a black and white cat who was the coolest, tons of personality, and he got quite a few kills as a mouser. Then the next two cats I had were scaredy cats — very anxious and not friendly, kept to themselves too much for my taste. I feel like there’s gotta be a secret to judging cat personalities in the shelter or store before you bring one home, but damned if I know.

    What sweet cats! So pretty.

    Glad to hear you’re mostly better. Here’s hoping tomorrow kicks the rest of the illness to the curb.

    Curious about the device behind Cheeps. Is that some kind of air purifier/filter? Does it work well? (In the market for one to help with asthma/allergies but do not want a repeat of the ionizing purifier troubles from years ago.

      Yup, it’s a Honeywell Air Purifier. Works fanastic. We have that one and two smaller ones in the condo going all the time. Fantastic things.
