Making it Official!!

It really wasn't all that long ago that we moved in together. We had practically just met.  I didn't know what to expect.  I'll admit, I was nervous.  There was so much to consider. But once we were together, it honestly all seemed so "natural," like it was just meant to be. Looking back on our first year, things actually went along pretty smoothly as we got to know one another.  I think we had and still have a great time and genuinely enjoy being together. Of course not everything has been perfect.  There have been a few hiccups and a few things to work out along the way. But I can honestly say we've worked through it, and we share a close bond.

I guess in all the time we've been together, I've just forgotten that it should be made official. I've no doubt whatsoever that some people think we already are "official," and will be surprised to find that we weren't.  I'll admit, this is all my fault, because I didn't see the importance of it.  But "the powers that be" have insisted on it.  They are right.

So, after nearly two years of living together, Cissy is now an "official" adopted member of Golden Pines.  Her adoption fee and contract to the rescue has been filled out, and mailed.
Cissy is here to stay.  (Did you think I was talking about something else?) And was there ever a doubt when she came to us nearly two years ago?

  7. Oh boy, do we know. Kali is a rescue and spent time on death's row in a kill shelter. She was adopted, and returned because she is slightly active. A couple of days ago, she was in the car and the peeps stopped to talk to neighbor friends-Kali came from the back seat into His lap and jumped out the driver's window of the car, not knowing what was below. She is still the "wylde chylde" and is not going anywhere soon because we took her in Actually she's great.
