All Growed Up

My kittens are all grown up and ready to enter the big, bad world, which is a struggle for me, as I want them to remain itsy-bitsy little baby cats forever.

Oh man, I'm dreading Gracie's first day of kindergarten this upcoming fall. If it is this difficult watching the cats step from the front door to the front porch, I can't imagine how I'm going to cut my apron strings and let Gracie get on a school bus and enter her kindergarten class without me.

Although Gracie is a little braver than my scaredy-cats, who might act like big grown-ups sometimes, but were truthfully too afraid to leave the front porch. After only a couple of minutes of shivering and shaking with fright, the kittens were happy to be back inside.

And of course I had to document it, because I'm Crazy Cat Lady, and that's the sort of thing Crazy Cat Lady does.

First steps!!

It took a good five minutes before Somer the Hermaphrocat even left the front door. Sophie took a little longer. They think they are so brave, but they're really not.

This is as far as Somer got before
he turned around and high-tailed it back inside.

And a video, which is a little on the boring side, but features me talking in baby-kitty voice.



FYI, yes I did blame the cats for the boringness of the video. What can I say? I am a blame-placer.

And if you want to admire my roses a little more, I blogged about them at my homey blog yesterday, {HERE}

Happy weekend, folks!

xoxo,

Jon - AWWW! Sorry you don't have your kitty with you! That is a tragedy, if you ask me.

Amanda - Haha, better than the stinkin' litter box. I'm looking forward to getting that out of my house!

Erica - eeeks, it is hard wrapping my head around it. They grow too fast!

Alyssa - That is a fact. I really am destined to be CCL. Although there may be a showdown between me and my neighbor. She seems to think SHE is CCL.

MAB - Aw, thanks! Yes, kitties are so precious!! I am so glad I converted my husband from misguided cat-hater, to affectionate cat-lover!
