Happy New Year's Eve!
We're taking a break from the Scavenger Hunt this week for the holidays. As I normally reserve Mondays here for the hunt, this seemed like a good opportunity to break some huge news.
Jake and I adopted these two little brothers from the Wisconsin Humane Society a little over a week ago. We've named them Apollo (left) and Ares (right). This is something that we've wanted to do for...a long time. The specific amount of time really isn't important. It didn't seem justifiable with our schedules and living space for many years. We've also been nervous about Angel's reaction, as she's always been the only cat in the house. But we've had a couple offers for slightly older kitties in the past few months (that we did not take because we thought that Angel would acclimate better with babies), and it seemed like a sign to finally take the plunge.
The brothers are already fast friends and have taken amazingly well to a new environment and introductions to a lot of new people the past week. I know that they will be warmly welcomed here, too. Angel has also done amazingly well, all things considered. Change is always tough, but she is quite good at adapting to new situations.
Be safe tonight and come back tomorrow for my 2012 goal wrap up post.
