There are some things that can seem small that you never expect would be a “thing” when you are adopting. One of them is making sure your pets are up to code and healthy, this is why this week we made sure we had all of Cali’s shots and health up to date.
This is Cali, she is around 4 years old and we got her when we were first dating. Danielle saw an ad on Craigslist for someone giving out kittens and she called me to ask “hey, do you like cats?” Now let me clarify, I never disliked cats, I had a cat growing up, I just hadn’t thought of the prospect of having a cat, specially with someone I had just started dating. What I didn’t know is that Danielle and her Mom and Sister were on their way to this barn in the middle of nowhere to pick up this cat. They arrived at this barn with all these malnourished kittens that were probably starving and not taken care of, they ended up choosing Cali to be ours.
Cats have odd personalities, Cali is not really a people person, we don’t even know if she likes even us some times and then other times she can’t get enough of being around us. She freaks out whenever family or friends come over and it takes her a day or two when people from out of town stay with us.
But she is ours and we have loved her.
Anyway, for the home study process, any pets in the house need to have all their shots and vet records up to day, so as small as this step may sound, we are pretty happy that we got this first step done.
Now hopefully we can start progressing some more soon, but all in due time.
