One random little happening can sometimes make you rearrange everything in your life, from daily routines to long-term plans, from furniture to a new residence altogether. Last week, a stray kitten followed Daniel home, and I’ve been in a happy daze ever since. 😍
Daniel and I have always wanted pets, and we temporarily took care of a few, but the long-term commitment was too challenging and didn’t seem to fit into our plans and lifestyle yet, therefore we postponed getting a pet. Moreover, we only considered rescues, looking for mutual attraction and a magical element of “meant to be”. In these circumstances, when a dirty kitten abandoned by the road acted as if he had known us forever, we made room for him, because it was… meant to be. 😺
We named him Kara Bey (Turkish for Sir Black), initially thought he was female, and the more I get to know him, the more surprised I am to find how closely he resembles the cat of our dreams. Well, one of them, at least. 😃
For almost a week now he’s been my main focus. My routines are seriously affected, my schedule on hold, we don’t get enough sleep, must move into a house more suitable for pets, and so on, but it all dissolves into the joy he brought into our life. It will work out somehow, hopefully for the long run.
I’ll get back to the series on Romanian communist prisons as soon as possible. I’ve produced enough DIY cat toys during the weekend to keep Kara entertained while he’s awake, so I might get back on track 😆
