I am a huge animal lover, and a few days ago I discovered a little ray of sunshine in the backyard of the house I nanny at. A kitten was roaming about the backyard, and with a little coaxing it came right up to me. The kids that I watch and I played with the kitten all day, and I ended up taking it home with me. I am a lover of cats, and mine passed away last summer. For the last 8 months or so, I have been begging my mother to get another cat for her house, and this was the perfect opportunity!
The kitten is one of the sweetest I’ve ever met! She never stops purring, curls up against your neck for numerous naps throughout the day, and used her litter box on the first day. I’ve really enjoyed spending these past few days with her. I’m not 100% sure if I’m allowed to keep it here permanently. We do have a dog in the house that seems a little bit jealous of the sweet kitten, whom I have yet to name in order to not get so attached.
That’s just one of the things I like about being at home during the summer. I live in a small town, and there are lots of animals just roaming around. I’ve seen deer, groundhogs, squirrels, dogs, and cats right outside my back door!
I do really hope I can keep her! If not, anyone looking for a kitten?
Thanks for reading..
The first semester of the school year is almost over! I can hardly believe it, partly because I have too many tests and projects to complete in the next week and a half. I’m not sure if it’s even possible to do as much as I have to, but I’m sure every other college student feels this same way this time of year. I’m not going to complain. I’m just going to buckle down and get it done because after all the tests and projects are finished it’s Christmas break!
I am so looking forward to this break. Getting so much time off can be somewhat of a bad thing because after a month of being out of school I find myself not wanting to go back, but other than that Christmas break is wonderful! I will be spending some time on campus and some time back at home this break. The Griffin Girls do not rest, and are continuing to practice throughout break so I will be experiencing some of the holiday season at Fontbonne. I am excited to be home and spend quality time with my family, friends, and others I have not really seen since the school year began. I will be spoiling my cats with cat treats daily, making sure they receive lots of love because I absolutely adore them!
Christmas is my favorite time of year. I cannot wait to get a tree to decorate and do all that Christmas shopping I have yet to start! I love the cold, and hope that we do see some snow this season. Snow on Christmas is delightful. I have a positive outlook on this holiday season, and I hope it does not disappoint!
Wishing you a Happy Holidays (and luck finishing this semester)!
Until next time…
