I am back to livin’ la vida gato and I couldn’t be happier about it (well…except for all the cat hair that’s already covering the whole house). I have really missed these little dudes - they’ve had to live with my parents for the past year and a half because our last place was strictly anti-cat (how rude!).

They’ve finally settled in up here and seem to be feeling at home…which means Chuck’s constantly airing out his thighs over various pieces of furniture, and Wicky aggressively grabs my finger at the first signs of me trying to type something.

I am especially happy to have them here tonight to snuggle. I got some devastating news earlier tonight about a friend/mentor of mine, and it knocked the wind right out of me. Life is so short and unpredictable, pals. Don’t ever take anything or anyone for granted.
