A Fool of Myself

One cat just leads to another.

Well, we did it. After months of deliberation, we have finally decided to add another member to our family. Last Friday, Ravi and I went to the vet for a check up and shots, and while we were there, we met Cosmo. Cosmo had been found in a crate on the side of a road, and a client of our vet brought him in. He’s been the resident office cat for the last few weeks, but the friendly staff at Cobblestone Veterinary Hospital have been looking for a permanent home for Cosmo.

And Cosmo was exactly what we were looking for: Bombay mix, male, neutered, with claws.

So we brought him home today. The adoption isn’t official; we’re seeing how he fits into our family for a few days. He’s made himself right at home, much to the dismay of Ravi, Cat Numero Uno. We made the mistake of letting Cosmo roam around on his own, and poor Ravi has been beside himself, hiding under one of our end tables. We’re currently trying to repair the damage we’ve already caused by leaving Cosmo in our office. He has quite the set up in there: litter box, water, food, office chair, and plenty of toys.

I’ll keep you posted on Ravi’s bruised ego and Cosmo’s adjustment to the family. And soon I’ll be able to tell you if we’re officially adopting him and what his new name will be!
