Two years ago today, I travelled to Stockholm to collect our little Izaak.
His harness was almost too big for him, even adjusted to the smallest size..
He was so tiny…
Zak and Lorelai bonded over leftovers. This is the day after he arrived.
Two days after that, he had his first outside adventure.
He quickly discovered his favourite, IKEA mice. This was his fifth day with us.
The day after that…
…we had our first trip to the vet…
…our first visit to DjurMagazinet…
…and our first walk home. Little Zak did a LOT in his first week with us!
But it isn’t just Zak’s Gotcha Day. Fifteen years ago today, we answered a Craigslist ad and brought Kylie home from Quincy. We had to stop at Petco on the way home to buy a carrier!
This is her and Tessie today, back in Boston. I can’t believe she is 15! And, in a month and a half, Tessie will be 17!
But wait, there’s more! 29 years ago, today, I got Harri, my very first Siamese. We were on our way to an SCA event, and we picked him up on the way.
He camped with us for his first several days with us before we got him home. That’s probably why he was such a good traveller.
He was 14 years old when we got Kylie…but he was very fond of her. Seems that 20 June is a good day to get a kitten!
