I call cats "chickens". There, I said it. When they lick their butts they look like rotisseries in the grocery store. Moving on.
Two days ago I visited the local Humane Society looking to adopt a new cat (chicken). We currently have one and wanted him to have a new brother or sister that we could also annoy. I brought my friend who cried her way though the building. She loves animals and it was quite precious. In total we spent over 3 hours there, saying hello to each animal, reading their paperwork that was hooked to the door, and requesting to take several out and into play rooms to see if they were a good match for the house. I couldn't make any decisions - hence the 3 hours. Just when I thought we had narrowed down which chicken I wanted, the ladies at the shelter informed me that there was a special and kittens were buy one get one free. Well OKAY!
Naturally I had to start the looking process all over and decide which 2 would make a good pair together in their new home.
I ended up choosing a very skittish tortoiseshell girl and a nearly pure white girl with a small grey smudge on her head. I have dubbed them Momo and Zelda. Momo - for her pure white fur and peachy pink skin. Momo means "peach" in Japanese, a reference to Princess Peach in Mario Brothers! It also helps that it's the name of a character in one of my favorite shows Avatar: The Last Airbender. Zelda was named for, OF COURSE, one of the most famous gaming characters of all time. (We like our games.)
Welcome to the family, chickens.
This is a space separate of my house blog. Here is where you'll find a little bit of everything. I'll try to avoid vapid posts - but no promises.
