I have such Kitten Fever that I stood in the cat aisle of Target the other day and touched almost everything they had for sale. Hopeless.
Well, not totally hopeless because I didn't buy anything.
When Tyler was a baby I only bought her Iams food even though I couldn't really afford it. And I walked two miles to the only pet store in West Chester to make sure she had the best because I wanted to be the best. Getting there wasn't so bad, but carrying 15 pounds of food back was the pits. Then they started selling Iams everywhere and that got easier. Then Iams wasn't agreeing with her so I bought this special senior formula stuff from Pet Smart because it worked. But then getting to Pet Smart wasn't agreeing with me so it was sort of a pain in the ass but I did it anyway and I was buying the giant bags but I really shouldn't have bought a giant bag that last time and now I have a lot left and I'll probably take it down to the park and feed it too the ducks soon even though there is probably chicken in it and I don't normally approve of one animal eating another animal that it is so closely related to. I think with the kittens I'm going to buy something that is cheaper and more easily accessible because in today's economic environment I just can't see taking special trips to buy special food.
Does this make me a bad mom?
Jake wanted to name the kittens, and I hesitantly agreed thinking we would have to negotiate on names like T-Rex or Spiderman or something. But no.
Emily and Layla.
I can deal with Emily and Layla. Emily is a Power Ranger. Layla I'm not sure about. There is a little girl in his class named Layla but last year before he even knew her he was hoping that his baby cousin was going to be named Layla. I think he thinks Princess Leia is Princess Layla.
Dan Rob, the guy who is fostering the kittens sent me pictures of them and they are edible. The pictures are a little wonky because they are so tiny but Emily is a grey and brown tabby with spots and stripes and Layla is a grey, white, and tan calico with a pink nose. I want to kiss that pink nose asap, even though I think Emily is way more gorgeous and I'll probably love her more because I'm shallow.
