Welcome Dylan!

We've adopted a new kitten. He'll be arriving on Friday. We already have two (rescue) cats. An 11 year old cat named Pooka and a 1 year old cat named Morgan Le Fey. Morgan is always trying to play with Pooka, and Pooka would rather just spend her time lying on the couch. We've been talking about getting a third cat for while, but just needed to find the right one.

We went to PetSmart to get food for our cats and they were having an adoption weekend. The woman that fostered Morgan was there, and she had a lot of cats with her. (She works/volunteers for a cat rescue group called "Cats At The Studios".) She recommended Dylan as having the right type personality to fit with Morgan. What can I say? I fell in love with the little guy. (My son fell in love with all of them, which was very easy to do.)

This is a picture of Dylan when he was about 8 weeks old. He's now three months old, but looks exactly the same to me.

Warning: both of these links will take you to the Cats At The Studios site of adoptable cats. Poke around at your own peril!


  1. Hmm.. when you click on the link that says Dylan, what happens?

  2. Yay adoption!!!!
    i wish we could have cats. i really want one but it's probably never going to happen with my dad and brother's cat allergies. Unless one day i have my hobby farm and have barn cats. But it's not quite the same thing...

    also, very cute. he looks like a dylan

    Yeah, a barn cat just isn't the same. I'm fortunate that my cat allergies are more or less manageable with medication and frequent washing :)

  4. Welcome to Dylan! Cats are great, mine is a big help when I write. She sits at the desktop screen and bats at the moving cursor! Enjoy ...

  5. Kittens are the best. Although older cats might protest a bit. Have you seen this: (A friend just sent it to me, and I couldn't stop giggling)


Thank you for posting a comment! I know that sounds a little needy, and maybe it is. I mean, I don't need comment validation to know that I exist, right? But I like to know that someone else (maybe you?) has read what I wrote and felt moved enough to reply. So, thank you.
