In this post, I plan on talking about some of the biggest joy we received in 2018. This joy came in the form of three tiny little balls of sass, defiance, snuzzes, mews, unconditional love & tons of fur.
Yes folks, we got kittens. Three of the sweetest, most frustratingly cute kittens known to man. I call them "The Mewlings" & this is the story of how they became a part of our ohana.
Let me start by telling you that the Snapchat app is an evil thing. I say this because this is how the Mewlings were first introduced to me.
It started with the Chicken who was staying at a friend's for the weekend. It just so happened that this friend's family had a cat who had just had a litter of kittens. Unfortunately when the kittens were about seven weeks old, the friend's dad got a job out of state & was going to have to move for a few months. He'd be renting out his house & didn't want to leave the kittens, but couldn't take them.
Being the kind hearted, animal loving kid that he is, the Chicken began full fledged efforts to find homes for all of them. Naturally the first person he hit up was me, because mom. This is where Snap gets evil, because pictures.
Long story short? Kittens are the Stork's Kryptonite. Yes folks I actually said no, but made the mistake of showing the pics to the Stork & the rest is history....
So without further ado, meet the Mewlings...
Honey will jump up & steal your seat before your butt is barely two inches off of it. Angus will wander around the house yelling in a manner that is reminiscent of Kalei's "werekitty howl" (Me-ow meow MEOOOWWOOOO).
Pumba will roll around the floor on his back, proudly showing his belly to the world. And all three of them will pick the most inconvenient spots on the floor to nap, like the middle of a doorway or dead center of our small kitchen.
Kalei was annoying at times, but absolutely one of the most loyal & loving things. Losing hims hit us all very hard, but we take comfort in knowing he's somewhere over the rainbow playing with his big sister Emily & hopefully finally catching a robin.
