we got a kitten today. it was kind of a surprise. it's Chris' fault, not mine. he wanted this kitten, don't let him tell you otherwise. he'll probably try to pin it on me, but no, this was all him.
we got this kitten from his mom, though, so if it doesn't work out (with Morgaine, because she's really the only variable in this situation), then we can give him back and everyone will be fine. it is a kitten trial period. so far she seems to be only occasionally miffed, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
here are some pictures, since I know that's what you're waiting for.
also, here is a picture of me and my pre-engagement snake. now that it is warm, she is a lot more open to the idea of hanging out with me.
