Mission Kitty

That's right, y'all.

Superman and I have fur-baby fever. Not to be confused with... well, you know.

We've been talking about fur-babies for a long time, but there's always been a bit of hesitation. I've never had a pet before so I envision the cute carrying case and the ball of furry fun! Superman envisions poop and scratched up furniture.  Secretly though I know he has a special place in his heart for furbabies.

And I think we've come to a middle ground breakthrough recently. Superman is leaving soon and it would be nice to have a little house friend. I think I can handle it (?)

Although lately, our excursions to find the right one haven't been successful. We really haven't felt a connection to the kitties we saw. You're supposed to feel a connection, right?

Without further ado... here's our latest mission to adopt our first kitty!

Step 1: Get your game face on.

...Or just get pumped...

Step 2: Try to bond
This big guy was mean to us.

This little guy wanted nothing to do with us.

 Mission: Fail.
While Superman says he'd prefer not to get a little gatto, he was legitimately upset when it didn't work out this time around.

So now we know it'll take a few tries...

This just might be happening people!


  1. If you get a kitty, get a hypoallergenic one, please!

  2. keep trying, you'll find the right one and furbabies are the best babies ;)

  3. You're finally going to get your kitty!?! That's so exciting!!

  4. Long time coming! Hypoallergenic is definitely on our priority list.
