We're gonna go for TWO cats.
Came home last night to discuss with Yujiro....while I ate a late bowl of dinner he made me wait to start chatting while he fiddled around on the computer.
Finally: "Ok! This will be your birthday present! I got it!"
"It" was a cat, climbing gym - a vast thing of towers and scratching posts!
He'd accepted the inevitable.
I called Satomi who sounded SO happy to get rid of two of them (what ARE they doing to her apartment I wonder??!!) and she said she'll meet me back outside the Seicomart this afternoon. And she'll bring the spray to stop them peeing everywhere. Oh no....
Oh my God. Two kittens!
I haven't had kittens actually since I was a teenager, when I guess my mother actually was in charge of their care and training.
Oh gosh. Two.
Ok? Names anyone? Tomorrow is Setsubun in Japan - a welcome-spring bean throwing festival...some students suggested "Mame" and "Bean", or "Azuki" and "Soy"....
I'm nervous. Have I bitten off more than I can chew? (more than THEY can chew?) I keep thinking ahead to my schedule this week of work and Snow Festival guests for Couch Surfing...they'll have to be some adjustments for 2 noisy babies.
