A New Statue

This is our new statue. Cute, isn't it? Well, in fact it is a "she".

I never thought I was a cat lover. Obviously I am, since this is the second cat that found a home here. Nina wanted a dog and was bothering me with that for years. Then we made a deal that we would have a cat since we can't afford to take care of a dog because we simply don't have enough time. We agreed we would take some time to gather information about how to take care of a cat and find a cute little one with a pedigree... well, we didn't have time for all that because my friend found a cute little one in her garden. We went there just to take a look; but of course we fell in love with the small black fur ball immediately and took him home.

Then Nina wanted another cat so that Lin would have some company when we are not at home. I said when we find a white one with a long fur, we will take it. I thought that will take few years or maybe... like never! I was so wrong again. Soon after that my co-worker informed me that they have a white cat with long fur that needs a new home. Well, what should one do in a situation like this? We went to see her, and of course took it home immediately.

She is really cute and we can pet her whenever we want, which we can't do with Lin. Right now, as I write this, Nina is sitting on a sofa with Liza in her lap. And with white cat fur all over her nice brown shirt. That is the bad part of having long fur cats and that part is driving me crazy! Our flat will never be clean again! But I love them all the same, I guess, and Nina is a happy and responsible cat owner. Cats seem to be happy too, so everything is fine. Who cares about a mum who gets upset now and then because of all that fur?

Oh, I don't know, I think you need a few more! (I am kidding) Cats are wonderful creatures, I am glad that you were able to bring two little waifs in

Have you tried to cover the area where the cats spend most of their time with a bed sheet, that would make it easier to that area clean.
