On Friday we welcomed a new member to our family! She’s fuzzy and squirmy and already I feel like I’ve known her forever.
A week ago, Mr. BFT and I went to a kitten adoption fair at the Burbank Animal Shelter. We decided we wanted to get a kitten for Christmas instead of exchanging gifts. We went just to feel it out and didn’t really expect to take a cat home right away.
We went and there was probably 20-25 kittens in cages, and just as many people milling about. We approached the nearest cage and were asked right away if we wanted to hold a kitten. DUH.
On Friday I went to the shelter and met up with the foster representative and Vela. The meeting went really well and before I knew it I was filling out some paperwork and taking Vela home!
Having a kitten is super exhausting! She has so much energy and we are on constant alert to make sure she doesn’t hurt herself or destroy something valuable. Oh, and her favorite time to run around like a maniac is between 12 midnight and 2 am. It’s an adjustment for sure but I’m really enjoying it.
I just want to give major props to the Burbank Animal Shelter! Everyone there was so nice and helpful. They have so many adorable pets ready to adopt, if anyone in the area is looking for a new member of the family. Vela even has a brother, and all black male kitty named Draco, who is still available for adoption. You can also follow them on Facebook for news and updates on their animals.
I’m sure there will be much more about Vela on the blog but if you want to see DAILY Vela updates, you can follow me on Instagram.
