I had a different picture initially picked out for today’s Flickr Friday, but I had popped by my parent’s house yesterday1 and I saw her for a few minutes and I missed her so that I decided I would post up this picture for your enjoyment, and mine.
This photo was taken close to when I was leaving to move to Ireland in July 2006. I had gotten a new camera, and was clicking like crazy. I got my beautiful little girl, in 2003 when I was still working at Ikea and my co-worker told me that his friend’s cat just gave birth to some kittens. He proceeded to tell me that his friend also said that if he doesn’t find adopters for these cats he’ll feed them his snakes as he already has 3 cats and can’t take care of 5 more. Needless to say I went to the friend’s house that night!
I walked in and there were two black cats and one white cat lounging around near the front door. Suddenly, I saw a grey blur whiz by us. Obvsiouly, I fell in love instantly with said blur. We chased her around the house for almost an hour before we caught her and I was able to bring her home in her little basket. I don’t have photos of her when she was younger up on flickr yet but they’ll get up there eventually. There’s more to Serine’s story but I’ll save that for another Flickr Friday.
I’m sure you all have pets, how did you fall in love with them?
