I thought I'd give a quick update on the kitty (Lydia) that we adopted. As you might remember, we found out, after adopting her, that she had a pretty serious heart condition, along with a few other health problems. The heart condition is still there, of course, but you'd never know it for how active this cat is! I had forgotten just how wacky cats are.
After we got Lydia on antibiotics for her infection, she really perked up. We fattened her up quite a bit (accidentally... she's been getting into the bacon grease I had in a can by the sink!), and she is really at home. I don't know if I'd say she's a 'nice' kitty, but she's full of personality and really holds her own against the dog. Between Oliver & Lydia, it's seriously a laugh a minute around here. Gosh... I do love animals, they are just the best!
Anyway, she is doing great! And I am glad to see her healthy and happy, I feel like I gave her a second chance, which is quite an awesome feeling.
Also, I finally got around to buying a DSLR camera, see how nice Lydia's portrait turned out? :)
