Last weekend, Ryan and I got a new kitten.  It was really never a question of if it would happen, but when.  For obvious reasons, we didn’t want to do it right away, but we also didn’t want to wait too long because Pipsi is sweet and social and deserves a companion.  So into our home Rory came.

He is very cute, playful, and curious.  He runs away from us but when we catch up to him, he purrs like crazy and sleeps contentedly in our arms.  Especially Ryan’s.

I’m sad and scared.  Rory’s presence is a very bittersweet thing.  He’s fun to have around, but he wouldn’t be here if Caspian still were.  He makes Caspian’s death more real, more final.  I’m scared of loving him like I loved Caspian only for him to die an untimely or even a timely death.  I’m hoping, and telling myself, that these are normal feelings to have in our situation.

So here we are.  I think we’ll be okay.

You guys look like new parents in these photos! That one of Rory cuddling in Ryan’s arms seriously looks like a newborn. Priceless!!! And yet again, I feel myself nodding in agreement as I read your posts :) I’m still scared to get another pup after losing Gracie. I know Gunner deserves a buddy, but I’m just not ready yet. Hopefully soon!
