I'm so excited, I had to share. Our son will be moving out of his apartment and into a dorm when he starts Law School in September and asked if we could adopt Lyla, his beautiful cat. She is really sweet -- we had a chance to get to know her a bit when we visited Peter in California a couple of months ago. I really wanted to get a kitty and my husband was receptive, though we had some disagreements over my insistance that she be indoors only.
Well, Lyla has been an indoor cat since Peter adopted her from the shelter, is scared of going out and does just fine -- so we are agreed! I couldn't be happier! My son will fly home and bring Lyla back in late June because he is planning a cross-country trip of several weeks with his sister when he actually moves out of his apartment in L.A. Can't believe that will be next month!
It's also great that things are working out fine as far as our house. We were unsure about a cat since we started trying to sell our home and didn't know if we'd have to look for a rental when we first move out. Well the house sold in one week and we already found a great old house and made an offer on it! So no worries there. :-)
My question, for you experts out there, is whether it would be a good or a bad idea to consider also adopting a new kitten to be a playmate for Lyla (she'll be a little over 1 year old by then I think) and so that when Peter goes into an apartment and, I assume, takes Lyla back, we will still have a sweet companion. Of course, we could wait until that time to adopt. Opinions?
