Bookish Catch-Up + Meet My Cats
Hello everyone! Welcome to my first blog post back post-kitten adoption. It's been a wild ride of hover parenting, swooning at all the cuteness, and being terrified of this tiny creature getting hurt. My newest family addition truly has no survival instincts so pardon my absence as I desperately tried to keep him alive.
Now that I'm back I thought it was time to do a bookish update and, most importantly, a reintroduction to my cats. As anyone who follows me knows, I'm a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady with a growing hoard of fur children. I previously had two cats before recently adding a third to my brood named Steven.
Life With Three Cats
These are the two cats that I've had since I was about eleven, so pre-Steven. You may recognize them from various pictures on my bookstagram and blog. Neither has a name they know because I got into a bad habit of just calling them both "kitty".
My new kitten Steven was a last-minute decision. Someone I know needed to find homes for a few kittens so they immediately thought of me as the resident cat lady. A few days later and I was saddled with the little guy, for the better.
Steven has been such a great addition to my household since I haven't had a kitten in about eight or nine years. I couldn't be more blessed to have this little bundle of joy. Otherwise known as my first-born son as I like to refer to him.
His adjustment hasn't been completely seamless between running after him as he bounds through the house, making sure he isn't getting into anything he shouldn't, and trying to keep up with my day to day life while taking care of him. My other two cats haven't quite warmed up to him yet but we're working on it. By 'working on it', I mean we're gradually introducing him to them. So far the result has only been mild dislike so I'll consider it a win.
I hadn't been reading a lot since adopting Steven but I've slowly gotten back into it as he becomes more independent. Right now I'm just focusing on reading for the love of reading as opposed to Goodreads goals and reviews I need to write. I've found this is the best way to get myself back into the habit.
I just finished The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell which was my first full-length read since returning. I have a review for it coming up next week - keep an eye out for that. It was such a good book and has already reignited my spark to dive into new books.
I'm thinking next I'll go for a couple of ebook reads and then onto The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller.
