I adopted a cat recently. I was meant to pick her up on the 22nd, but there were complications during surgery (apparently the surgical incision was a bit too large and they wanted to ensure it healed properly) and they changed the pick-up date to today, the 24th.
I picked her up and she's just a sweet little baby, she's so happy to finally be able to walk around, stretch out, and lay on the couch instead of being cooped up in a kennel/cage. I saw her a while back and knew I had to adopt her; she looks just like my current cat, Mink. I asked for more details on my new cat (who I've named Tizzy) and was told that she was found in the south of my city as a stray and is about 4 years old. Mink was sold to me by a breeder in the south of the city and is 4 years old as well. Their similarities in appearance, location, and age all said to me that they may be long-lost siblings.
Upon meeting Tizzy, I noticed that she has the same short-ish legs as Mink, the same silky fur and long tail hair, and exhibits the same quirky behaviour as Mink. I adopted her and I have her in my roommate's room for a week or so while I slowly introduce the two cats.
I originally had Moose (my sister's cat, who she left at my dad's house because she felt he was bored all alone at her house, and who I took with me to be with Mink for company), but my dad missed him so I gave him back. I miss him, but I know he's happier there where he can see my other two cats (Timmy and Red) and be able to roam around without competition from Mink. (Moose and Mink got along well, but Moose likes to play rough and Mink doesn't. This way Moose can see the older cats but also won't be able to smack Mink when he gets excited).
Anyways, I have two cats now, here's pics of both of them. New cat (Tizzy) is wearing the Cone of Shame, obviously.
