Holy Moses. Did we really do it, kittens?
Did we really clobber January?
I’m a firm believer that every month and season and moment has its beauty and miracle and wonder. But loving January has never been a resolution I can keep.
But we did it, my stars, we did it. And now we’re well on our way to spring: February is ittybitty, and March drives up daffodils, so we’re home free.
We are not, however, free to ignore the miracle and wonder that did wrap our January like a brrrrrito. Let us reflect:
Arrived: Henna; Hamsa; Bernice; Clawdia; Purrscilla; Pawla; Coretto; Denni; Disco; Idris(pictured in top thumbnail); Celsey; Millie; Elsa
Adopted: Hermione; Greyson; River & Firefly (together); Chad;Cleo; Hazel; Wilbur; Catsup; Corretto
Returned: Hermione (before being rapid-fire readopted; see above)
Cleared from Quarantine: Francesca; Hickory; Maggie; Montana; Mr. Jones
(Still) banished to Ringworm: Tiger; Rambo
Forever Foster Fabulosity: Jude, with the endlessly amazing Karina
Promoted to the Lobby: Jenny
Promoted to The Office of El Capitan: Stafford
Promoted to Heaven: Patches
Stuff we learned: We have unsavory characters among us who will bestow names like “Clawdia” and “Pawla” upon cats. Be afraid, kittens, be very afraid.
OK, little January, you’re forgiven for your frosty funk. Thank you for being kind, and quick. Full-speed ahead flying into Feb!
