It's Monday! What are you reading? is a great weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. It's where we share what we've just read, what we're currently reading, and what we're starting next.
I only managed two posts last week; and after my second post, I had to desert the blog and my blogging buddies because I was brought down by a tiny, one-pound monster. Here's how it all began: the weekend before last, we heard pitiful cries coming from the woods by our house. When we went outside to investigate, this is what we found:
We searched for siblings and a mom but didn't find anything; he was all alone, filthy, and starving. It took most of the day to earn this little guy's trust, but we finally did, with patience and bribery.
We took him to the vet, and he got a clean bill of health along with shots and everything a new kitten needs. He's a little small for his age, which the vet estimated to be seven weeks, but he is doing amazing and we're sure he'll be caught up in no time.
So meet Loki, god of mischief!
Here's the part where I should probably tell you that not only am I more of a dog person, but I am also very allergic to cats. Not that I let this stop me because I love all animals. I had a rough reaction last week and thought we would need to find the little guy a new home, but I'm on some new meds and am feeling better. I think he'll be staying with us for three reasons:
1. my self-portrait:
2. this widdle face:
and 3. he's clearly a book-lover:
I'll be by to catch up with all of you later today; and of course, if you have any advice on kittens and allergies and introducing Loki to the other pets (which we haven't done yet), please feel free to share :) Now, onto the books!
