Now this week’s smile is an odd one in that I wasn’t really expecting it, but… OK, I know, it has been a tough week. Floods, like the one in Tennessee, hurricanes and tropical storms, fires, countries falling to extremists, etc. , but let’s try to find to smile about.
On Saturday afternoon I was only thinking of animals in takign care of Grace and Alexander 9the two cats) and the puppies, Fiyero and Idina, who were going to be home soon. When I called to see where they were, I heard the word “kitten”.
It was pouring rain on Sunday morning. Henri had made landfall. We drove almost an hour to a humane society located in Swanzey, NH. It was a very nice facility. There we looked at a little kitten named “James”. He was a tiny thing, most likely the runt of the litter. He had come up from Georgia.
And he came home with us.
Most likely the name “James” will stay, but it will be changed to “James Bond”.
He is tiny and very disruptive. He is very active and has explored the house. he has some interaction with the dogs, mostly positive. Alexander hisses and growls and is obviously put out. Grace comes out to be fed and then goes back into hiding.
James slept on me half of the night and then next to me the rest of the night. The dogs were on the bed, but he didn’t mind.
No photos yet. Coming soon.
I’ll be honest, I did not want another kitten so soon after getting Alexander. Obviously when I have a cute kitten in the house that seems to like me, I am going to like him. And his antics does make me smile.
So that is my smile for the week, a new kitten to disrupt life in our house.
What made you smile?
Note – I may not be able to have a smile recap next week.
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
