I am going to be the crazy cat lady and talk about my first baby today!! sorry this might be a little long...
|Meet my spoiled baby Kors|
I have a weird pet history. I had a cat when I moved from El Salvador to California, but my dad didn't like her so he gave her away. Then growing up I developed allergies around cats and dogs, so my parents never got me any pets. When ever I would go to friends' houses with dogs ad cats I would start wheezing and break out in rashes. I finally convinced my parents that it was just allergies and that I deserved a cat. I rescued a calico, but there was something off about her. My parents took her to the vet and the vet called to tell us she had cancer and would not survive. I cried :(
When I moved out of my first apartment in Chino 5 minutes away from my parent's to where I live now in Fullerton, I had the HARDEST time with the transition. So in effort to make me feel better about the move, The Husband said I could get a cat....actually he said I could get 2 cats...That made me feel better but we were going to be traveling a lot and I didn't want to get a cat before then.
After all our traveling was done, I went on a mission to get a cat. We went to 2 different animal shelters on a rainy Dec. day looking ( we drove from one shelter in Orange to another shelter 20 miles away in Pomona in the pouring rain). Kors was in Pomona and I am so glad I forced Matt to drive the 20 miles that day. Kors was so sweet and loving from the moment I laid eyes on him. As we filled out paperwork, another girl came in and said she wanted him too. Of course I was already in the process of filling out the paper work so he was MINE!!!
Matt asked what I wanted to name him. His family had a tradition of naming their pets after alcoholic drinks...they had cats named Kahula, Bud, and Miller; and dogs named Brandy, MaiTai, Cosmo. We decided we wanted to start a different series and of course I picked fashion designers :) I love Michael Kors (and since Matt watches Project Runway with me, he knows who that is!!) So that was how we named and got Kors!!
|The day we brought him home :)|
|He was soo small!!|
