I don’t have a new recipe for you all today. But don’t go just yet! I do have something to share that will explain where my mind has been for the past couple of weeks – as my focus has clearly not been on baking. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have tried a couple experiments that had great potential. But they sadly didn’t work out – hence no goodies for Sweet + Natural! I’m determined to perfect those though. Stay tuned.
Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter, you may have already heard the news.
Dan and I adopted kittens!
And I have fallen into and been completely absorbed by the black hole that is kitty cuteness. Seriously, friends, these kittens are amazing. I instantly embraced my furmom role and have been taking an exorbitant amount of pictures and talking about them to anyone who will listen – which now includes you! Allow me to introduce our new furbabies.
This is Chester.
And this is Nora.
Chester is so ridiculously crazy that we sometimes suspect he could be diagnosed as mentally unstable. Think tearing through the apartment at lightning speed, jumping several feet in the air just because, pouncing on suspicious-looking pens at every opportunity, rustling manically in a paper bag and bolting out the door – or attempting to – the second it opens.
Troublemaker in action.
But our little menace also loves to cuddle, so it balances out. He’s all about extremes that one.
Nora is a sweetheart. She was very timid and mostly hid the first couple of days, not knowing what to think of her new home or Chester – lots of hissing occurred during their courting period. But now she and Chester are BFF – they chase each other around the apartment, cat wrestle and curl up into one furball to sleep together.
She is quick to snuggle up with us for a nap on the couch too. She also loves to let out teeny meows whenever she enters a room and has an obsession with drinking from our water glasses.
I call her our little supermodel because she’s so pretty.
Work it girl.
We adopted them both from City Critters – a rescue organization in NYC. Chester was abandoned at a vet’s office with his mom, and Nora was found alone on the street in Brooklyn. We’re SO glad to be able to provide them a happy home. And I highly recommend looking at the City Critters adoption listings if you’re in New York and in the market for a cat. The ladies we worked with are wonderful!
So there you have it! I promise I will try to peel myself away from them soon to whip up something awesome for you!
Do you have pets? Are you as obsessed with them as I already am with mine?
