New House & New Friend For KittyMonday, July 27, 2015
For those of you who have been reading this space for awhile you'd know that my cat (Fay) is the closest pet to me at home and we've been super close for a long time, that is until Kayla's born. I honestly thought I'd never neglect her even when I have a child because she's totally like my baby! But oh how things spiralled out of control, and to make matters worse some of my family members are super against kitty coming anywhere near baby. So everytime she tries to run over to us to say hi and the baby is there, it'll be followed by screams of "CAT!!" and then she'll be hauled away by the helper and banished outside. This went on for months and I'm just glad she didn't just fall into depression and run away.
So anyway, I'm really touched that D actually took the initiative to bring Kayla near kitty recently for them to get to know each other. He was actually really against animals coming near babies at first, and was also never a fan of fay to begin with. I've never told him before but I think that is one of the best things he's ever done for me in our r'ship and I hope one day he might read this and know how truly thankful I am for that. I guess I've always just assumed that its okay for babies and pets to live together since I grew up with lots of animals at home, so this was an aspect I really struggled with. Not to mention, I keep seeing heartwarming pictures of animals becoming best friends with babies on instagram, and wish that Kayla and Fay could have the same experience ♥︎
Back to the cardboard house.. I'm sooo happy I found this! It's so so cute and the perfect alternative to a regular scratchpost! Fay used to have a 3 tier scratchpost but its so old and dirty we decided to get rid of it heh. Hopefully she feels a little more loved now that she has a place in the house to call her own again :D
