i am totally in love with our new kitten. she is such a sweetheart, and she really is the princess. she loves jumping in bed with us and falling asleep with her head on the pillow. it’s absolutely adorable.
that is my favorite picture of her. sasha is still being quarantined from the other cats because she was quite sick when we took her in. the vet said she had several parasites and viruses, as well as worms. one of the parasites he said is the same one humans can get from drinking bad water, so we’ve had to be careful since we could get sick. i think we’re probably in the clear now though. her medicines seem to be working quickly. i wish getting her to swallow her pills was that quick!
we’re keeping sasha in our bathroom, and while she’s in there, the boys huddle by the door, trying to peek under it to catch a glimpse of her. her arm is so thin she can reach it completely under the door, and the cats just stare as she flails it around. hehe.
we let her out for an hour or so every night, though, so we can spend some time with her. we call it her hour of rec time, similar to what prison inmates get. hehe. she loves playing with the ball track, even though she trips over her long legs, and she *loves* scratching on one of the scratching pads. we left it in the bathroom for her, and it’s so funny to hear her scratching away during the day. she took to it very quickly. as soon as joe took her over to it, she started scratching. again, another sign that she’s a girl — she does what she’s supposed to and learns what to do right away.
i will leave you now with some more pictures of her.
