Yep, I ended up adopting Mittens, whose new name is Ptera (short for Polydactyl Pterodactyl, pronounced like Tara).
I’m now an official volunteer at the local humane society! I went through the training and did my first hours of volunteering cleaning cat cages and then spending time playing with the cats.
This cat, Tinsel, insisted on patting me on the head the whole time I was cleaning her cage and the ones around her. She didn’t want to be petted, she wanted to pet me!
This cat’s name is Mittens and I’m completely in love with her. She is a polydactyl (has extra toes), something I’ve always loved and wanted. She is also a gorgeous color, dilute or blue tabby. The others at the shelter don’t like her because she is a bit sassy, but I think that makes her more fun!
This is the same shelter where I adopted Luie, Izzie, Jo, and Kamikaze!
|My sock collection has grown quite a bit since last year!|
The theme for this week’s dog photo challenge is “Favorite Toy,” which is perfect timing because one of Maigee’s favorite toys is socks and today is Crazy Sock Day! You can visit last year’s post to read a bit more about crazy sock day, or you can go to the Facebook event for the 3rd Annual Crazy Sock Day or like the Crazy Sock Day page.

|My three baby bunnies thought socks made
perfect sleeping bags, warm and snuggly!
|Zac was really hoping the orange sock would
taste like carrots (he says they didn’t).
|Tyler thought he might like to play with socks.|
|Jessie thought they made perfect
ear warmers in this cold weather
|And me? Well, I’m boring and just
wore my socks like a normal human.
