William's cat Luna
While fixing dinner last night, I was trying to catch up on "House", but was distracted by the loud sounds of sirens wailing. I said a prayer for the safety of my husband driving home from work at that same hour. Let him be safe. Then, a bit of guilt, knowing that if my husband is safe, some other family's daddy or mommy might not be safe. I said a prayer for whomever those sirens were for. They went on and on. It must be a terrible fire or accident.
Then - I realized William was in the basement with his buddy playing xBox. The sirens were on their game. My husband arrived home safely, as I hope everyone else did, too.
The above photo is of William's new kitten, Luna. She is scared but warming up nicely. After living eight short weeks in a barn, she and her two siblings were in a "cat room" at the pound, with many big and (if I were a wee kitten) scary cats. It will take awhile to not be scared, but she and William have bonded already.
