Today, as some of you may know, we picked up our little munchkin kitten! Took us an hour to drive but it was worth it! She is soooo precious! Her name is Pheobe. She was the smallest of her littler and one of the only ones with short legs. The lady said that her full size will still be pretty small. (Which is FINE with us :D)
So we got to the groom shop where we were supposed to pick her up from, and when we first saw her she was very scared and shaking (The groom lady said there had been dogs in there earlier and so she had been a bit frightened). We put her in her carrier…which freaked her out until i put it on the ground, talked to the lady a bit and then got in the car. The first part of the trip she was definitely wondering what the heck was going on. She meowed a lot and was shaking a bit. I started petting her and that calmed her down. After that she started wandering around in her carrier and peeking her head out of the top because she wanted to explore….she really seemed to like when i stuck my hand in her carrier…she’d either start playing with it, rubbing her head against it, or putting her paws on it, either way it seemed to comfort her.
After about 20 or 30 minutes, her eyes started to get heavy, and pretty soon she was in a corner of her carrier resting her body against my hand…and fast asleep. 🙂 She was like that for the rest of the trip. And when we got home she got very adventurous and scouted out the apartment.
She seems very playful, very cuddly and seems to really like being around people. Every time she would come near one of us she’d start purring. I can tell she’ll be a very entertaining little munchkin, and definitely a great cat to snuggle and take a nap with….speaking of naps, that’s what she’s doing right now: Curled up in a ball sound asleep, it’s been an exhausting day for her I’m sure! Just a bit ago she was meowing in her sleep…she’ll fit in great. 🙂
We’ll be posting more about her in the future, but for now, here’s a little video of her cuteness. 🙂
