Whew! There and back again (cue hobbit music) in just 15 minutes!

Given that I'm blogging for the ASPCA, I think its only fitting that I show you some of my cats!

First up is the One Kitten To Rule Them All, Tallulah Jane! (That is, she will be if she will stop pouncing on me every time I stop petting her to type!)

I got Tallulah when my sister's cats had kittens last May. Her nicknames include Lu, Lula, Lulu, Lula Jane, Moo Gu Gai Pan (how do you spell that?) Kitten Lu, Baby Lu, Bubba Lou, Looby-lu, Talluey Kablooey, Janey Cat, Booba Lu Lu (You only realize how very strange some of these are once you type them!) Tally Lu, and just about every other version you can imagine. I had a running list once, but I think it got too long and set off on a quest for world domination.

There's a little gap between the side of my bed and the wall, and every now and then, Lula falls into it when she rolls over. This very thing happened this week, so of course, I had to take pictures of her reaction!

She's also (very) recently figured out how the blinds work. Usually when I let her into my bedroom, she runs over and opens them up and sticks her head out.

I love her more than words can say. The first thing I do when I get home from work every day is hop in bed with her for some quality petting and telling her that she's the queen of the universe and such. I think she digs me almost as much as I dig her. And when I wake up in the middle of the night to find her sleeping in the crook of my arm, it makes everything worth it.
