When she first told me she was going with green – after pink and purple – I was hesitant, but I think it looks great on her. Sadly, it will be going back to auburn soon. She’s in her last semester in college and has to start the job search soon. She’s a criminal justice major and wants to work in a law office, so no wild colors.
They are constant mayhem. They currently live in a 500 sq ft studio in NYC with only two doors – hallway/outside world and bathroom – so you can’t escape them.
The green haired female is my daughter.
We think our female ginger was a feral kitten that someone caught and turned in to the humane society. She has some interesting traits – loves water and being in the shower – unlike the other cats, she has never had an interest in the outside world. We adopted her in Hawaii and then moved to the DC area. The first time it snowed my daughter tried to take her out to see it, she couldn’t get back in the house fast enough.

Follow up to my post from yesterday, as requested by Granny Roberta. Our cat that passed on 12/29 was named Minkus by the shelter where we got him and I liked it, so it stayed – I googled the name once because so many people asked about, I believe it is the last name of a minor 18th century composer. He was a half Maine Coon and that’s all we know. We adopted him when he was 8 weeks old and 1 month after 9/11 (easy to remember his age). Our kids were 5 and 3 at the time, and he was absolutely patient with both of them (the then 5 is autistic but loves animals). He quickly formed a bond with our daughter (the 3). He loved hanging out in her room, no matter what she was doing – the only time he ever wanted out of her room was when she dressed him in Build-A-Bear clothes. An hour later he was back in her room looking for attention. In Dec 2005 when we were in the middle of a move to Hawaii, he got outside at my MIL’s and lived in a culvert for 2 weeks. My daughter was devastated when Santa didn’t bring her buddy to her for Christmas – it was all she wanted. Luckily, a neighbor was able to catch him and he flew by himself to HI instead of with his feline and human sister. He was a trooper – he moved three times (military family), outlived to feline sisters, and had an amazing personality. He was just a good boy. About three years ago right before the girl child left for college we noticed he was losing weight. It took a couple of months but his thyroid level finally showed what our vet suspected was going on – hyperthyroidism. At that point he was 15 and we were leary of the radiated iodine treatment for him and did meds twice a day. He would maintain his weight for a bit, then get a little worse. His health had been a roller coaster the last two months. We had hoped he would be able to make it to next week.
I’m devastated. Our senior boy crossed the rainbow bridge Monday morning. I’m on vacation in Tokyo and woke up in the middle of the night to find messages from our friend who was caring for him and my husband (in MS visiting his family).
Absolutely! We will do our best ;)
Our church members order poinsettias every year, and every year at least one person asks me if I’m ordering any. We only have 30 active members, you would think they would all remember by now that I have three kitties and two dogs (two grand kitties that come for the holidays), so no, no poinsettias.
My daughter and I will be in Tokyo for omisoka! We will be going to the Oji Fox Parade! Can’t wait!
