Introducing: Stella


ImageIt’s only right that my first ‘realpost is about one of the loves of my life – and I should give fair warning now: I love a lot of things; but not all things are my cats!  That’s right, *surprise* I’m a cat lady.  Now that we have that out of the way, meet the littlest meow face of the bunch, Stella.  I got Stella in the summer of 2008; right after I moved to Los Angeles.  I was living by myself for the first time and Sake needed a friend, so I took myself down to a local chapter of the Los Angeles Animal Services to see what I could find.

Now, I’m going to jump on and off of my soap box SUPER quick: Adopt, adopt, ADOPT! There are so many worthy, sweet, smart, cuddly animals at the shelter – why would you deny them the chance at a fabulous life with yourself? You know you’re awesome, now get a pet to prove it! // end rant.

I walked into the cat room at the animal shelter, took one look around and immediately my eyes were drawn to the center aisle – the most adorable bundle of fur was rolling around, screeching with delight as another cat whimsically batted at a toy in the corner.  I turned around to the aide, and before I could say a word – they knew and immediately laughed my way: “You want to see the grey kitten, don’t you?” And oh, did I ever.

Now, I’ve had cats the entire 27 years I’ve been alive – but never have I ever raised a kitten!  Bringing Stella home turned into a glorious challenge, thankfully there’s a book for that; The Cat Biblecame highly reccommended, and I can see why – for cat owners new and young, and for those that just fancy felines – this one’s for you.

About missamandapearl

♥ I'm a spunky girl with a big heart and an open mind. I can't ride a bike and dislike capital letters. I'm slightly obsessed with my kitties - Daisy, Stella, Loki, Marley and Lucky - but I bet if they were yours you would be, too. I laugh all the time - loudly and mostly at myself. my favorite things include, but aren't limited to: fabulous people, my fantastic husband, traveling, live music, social media, a good read, working out, furry friends, the Golden State Warriors, photography, and sushi. Everyone, including you, looks like an animal - and I won't hesitate to tell you which one. I was born and raised in the 650, spent some of the best years of my life at UCSB as a gaucho and for over a decade I was a proud angelino; I effing loved└A, but it was ready to fly so I’ve spread my wings to the Pacific North Wonderland and can’t wait to dive into new adventures!
