I got a new cat!
Her name is Charli, and I love her very much. :)
My girlfriend and I wanted to get a second cat for a very long time, but things always came up. First there was the fact that we didn’t have our own appartment. Then there was a global pandemic. Then russia invaded UKraine.
Eventually we agreed to get a new cat either when Ukraine wins, or when through some serendipitous turn of events a “perfect cat-getting situation” arises naturally.
Well, the situation arose! A cat that belongs to someone in our building gave birth to 6 wonderful kittens. 6 British/Scottish short-hairs. Just what we wanted.
It felt like a sign so we went right for it, came over to their place, chose our cat, and in a week — she was living with us!
