One of the big changes is that my parents moved the piano I practiced on for years up to my house. I’m still amazed that they’re giving it to me, and I’m so excited to be able to play it again. The viola is fun, but playing songs like “Go Tell Aunt Rhodie” isn’t as exciting as playing more complicated songs on the piano.
I’ve also been checking out the cats that are available from the humane society. Tonight I found a pair of Persians named Laverne and Shirley who are already “fixed” and declawed. This is a picture of Laverne. Ever since I saw Amanda’s Persian cat shaved like a lion, I’ve been intrigued by them. I just read though that they have a tendency to want to skip the litter box…maybe not exactly what I’m looking for.
I’m also reconsidering cat names. I’ve had a short list for a while: Mr. Kittyhead, Gladys, and then an old professor’s name: Kathi Bailey. But, I’m open to new possibilities. I also haven’t decided if I’ll get 1 cat or 2. It looks like I likely won’t be having a job where I travel, so maybe my cat won’t need another cat to be entertained. 2 cats also may be inching toward crazy cat lady a little sooner than I’d like.
