This post is well overdue!! Meet Banks, my 3 month old kitten.
As mentioned previously, my current roommate is getting married in August and, naturally, moving out. I didn’t go out of my way to find a new roommate. Until this past weekend that is. Rhett and I went to the Houston SPCA and found this little guy. We looked at a lot of kittens and didn’t feel a connection with any of them until Banks came in and stretched his long body out down to his toes.
He has to be about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen—playful, curious and cuddly.
Loves the cooler in my room…
and sleeping in the warm sun on my bed.
He also loves watching the words appear on the screen as I type them and swatting at the mouse pointer : ) He’s going to be a big boy, too. Just check out the size of those paws.
Rhett had an unfortunate incident involving a psycho cat inside his sleeping bag as a child, so until recently, he did not consider himself a cat person. Things have changed, people! Brace yourself for the most amazing cat tree you have ever laid eyes on:
This thing is well over 6 feet tall and complete with 5 carpet covered shelves and a rope walkway! Banks came home on Saturday evening and this bad boy was complete by Sunday at lunch! All that’s left is to stain the wood. He’s taken, ladies. Sorry.
I have to tell you, as I write this, I have the keyboard in my lap and Banks is sitting between me and the computer (watching the type appear as I said earlier). Guys, he is falling asleep sitting up! Literally bobbing his little head and body to the side as he tries to stay upright and fall asleep simultaneously. A cat that is hypnotized by blogging?? I’m in heaven.
