|The day we brought her home!|
Late last year, Tristan decided that as his roommate at the time was supposed to be moving out soon, and he was going to be alone, he needed some companionship around his place. We decided adopting a kitten was the best idea - and Imgur (a site we both visit regularly) is full of kittens doing very cute things.
After days of patrolling Petfinder.com (Great site, by the way!), and falling in love with a couple of kittens that weren't available, we found a site called Heartofthemidlands.org (Also, a great - if heartbreaking - site!). There are both cats and dogs, and when they appear on the site they appear with a date, and a few days after that date, that animal is euthanized. The whole site is a list of kittens, cats, puppies and dogs who are all on death row!
|Such an ornery Christmas kitten!|
So I found Eeva on the site, and it took a little bit of coaxing, but eventually, Tristan fell in love with her, based solely on her picture. So, we decided to get her. We went through the application process, got her supplies and made friends with a fantastically English volunteer with an organization involved in saving the pets on that site, then, finally, she was ours to pick up and take home! We waited for her to be spayed, and for me to be there before picking her up. I came down on my christmas vacation, and Eeva quickly became the christmas kitten!
|She gets into everything!|
Her favorite spot is laundry though!
Eeva is so attached to Tristan at this point that she goes crazy when he's not around. If he is gone for more than a single work day, she starts getting a little aggressive in her play with myself, and the other animals. She has separation anxiety to the extreme.
Now that we have Shadow, she's consistently growling, remember the pig story? It hasn't gotten that bad... yet... and she doesn't get all fuzzed anymore unless Shadow attempts to play with her, but now she's costantly growling and doesn't really want to cuddle with anyone - even Tristan (who is okay with that situation, as the first few hours of Shadow being her, he got fairly scratched up).
Fortunately for Eeva, she's a cutie, so we'll keep working on her, see if she'll become that sweet little kitten again!
