The Kittens Have Arrived


I decided that I should get a kitten so I could work on being a kind and loving person. I tend to have trouble with empathy, compassion, blah, blah. Anyway, my plan was to seek out a Siamese kitten that I could train to act like a dog; I used to have a cat like that and I suppose I wanted to duplicate that experience. Well, plans don't always work out. Instead, I learned of two feral kittens in need of a home. This was almost exactly NOT what I was looking for, but I realized that this is perhaps a better situation for both me and the kittens. Instead of me imposing my preferred behavior on some poor, unsuspecting kitten, I can try to build a mutually beneficial relationship with a couple of cute little critters that would just as soon tear out my eye than take a nap. Don't let their cuddly ways fool you; these are man-eaters. This might turn out alright.

I thought I was getting a short-haired male cat ... instead, I ended up with a long-haired female (hence the reason her name is Bronco). Enjoy!!

Hey, you want a puppy to go with those kittens? You can train it to act like a cat. He already has some of those traits already.

Taking feral animals that need help proves you have compassion.

That's not an easy job in the slightest.
