I am the owner of a new kitten!
She is an orphaned kitten and was found at a friend’s worksite. He works on a construction site. He knew a construction site wasn’t a safe place for a kitten, so he saved it. Initially my room mate was going to keep her, but since we are all about to go home for the holidays, her mom told her she couldn’t bring it home with her.
So now, she is all mine! I’ve never owned a cat by myself before! I am so excited! However, I do know it is a lot of responsibility. Having a new pet can be a lot like caring for a child. Their well-being relies solely on their new care giver. I have already learned I will have to make some sacrifices while caring for Stella. It was even difficult to type this blog post because she keeps playing with my fingers and jumping onto the keyboard.
Having a kitten requires feeding it, bathing it, playing with it, taking it out to use the bathroom, and providing a loving and caring home. My heart ached for Stella at first, because I couldn’t imagine being left alone in such a big world.
Stella and I already have such an amazing bond. She purrs any time I pick her up. She will nuzzle up next to me, and as crazy as it may sound, whenever I say “I love you”, she understands me.
No matter what it takes, I am still very excited to have Stella. She is already such a big blessing.
