Caution – cute alert

(If you are feeling like you have too much sugar in your system, do not read this post.)

Mer and I have been adopted. By cats. Two moms and six kittens, to be precise. They showed up on our back porch yesterday. The kittens are at the most adorable stage possible – still nursing, but playful. Three of them like to sleep in one of my flowerpots.

They are feral – we have a lot of them in our apartment complex. There is a swath of woods behind my building and a stream, so they don’t have any trouble finding food and water. And I am hugely allergic, so no matter how much they tug at my heartstrings, they have to stay outside.

I’ll be packing again this morning, then going out to lunch with a friend, and hanging out with Steph in the evening. Tomorrow is a writing day.

    Those are the cutest kittens ever!

    By the way, I’ve been a fan of yours ever since I first was reading Speak (years ago, when it came out) and you mentioned Syracuse. I actually screamed a little, I was so excited to read a book that was set in my city, by a person who understands the whole thing with snow days. (This year it was like negative 30 with windchill and we still had school. One day the pipes broke and there was an actual waterfall in the school, and WE STILL HAD SCHOOL!) I haven’t gotten to read Prom yet :-(, but when I heard about the West Genessee thing, I was shocked. It was surreal. I’m sorry I’ve waited so long to say anything to you, but it took me a while to find this journal. I love reading it.

      Thanks, Catherine! Don’t know if you heard, but I’m moving back up there in a few weeks. Maybe I’ll run into you at the Farmer’s Market or Carousel Mall.
