I’m having to police the piano practices this morning. I know. I didn’t think I’d have to do that anymore, but at lesson yesterday, it was very apparent that there is some, skimping on some areas of practice, going on. I’ve always had the opinion that, if I hear “music” coming from the piano, that they were doing their lessons and I could be getting my morning chores done! I guess that’s not altogether a great way to go. So, as much as I enjoy writing to y’all, I’m not real thrilled that my morning chores are waiting for me while I sit here and listen (and watch) the boys practice. (And I thought they were tough as toddlers!)
But… while I am here, let me show you the newest addition to our family.
This kitty is here to replace the loss of Harrison’s first “baby” Kiki, who sadly, never fully recovered (mentally) from her mauling last April. It was all very sad, but life.
The new kitty is six months old and now named Ahmi. It is short for some long Japanese word that means something like unextinguishable black fire. My boys… and their love for all things Japanese! 🙂
This is what she looks like when she’s sitting. Seriously! The long skinny neck and all.
She has turned out to be a very cool little kitty. The first few days were rough – but aren’t they with any new critter? Now she is calm and loving and sleeps with Harrison at night! Lulu and Tang have not made “friends” with her per say. But their, passing by each other, has gotten closer and closer… and with less hissing!
So, now each of the younger boys has a “baby” of his very own to love and take care of. It is all good (as long as I never have to do the litter boxes!).
