The Little Knittin' Knitten House is about to get a whole lot more kitteny

My cousin has 4 or 5 cats. He never got his original male and female cats spayed/neutered and ended up keeping one or two from the subsequent litters (he's fixing them now, though). Last night, his mother tells me, he had a run-in with his landlord who demanded that two of the cats be vacated asap. My poor cousin was in tears and they didn't know what to do. They were prepared to give the two cats selected for exotus to the Humane Society. Luckily, I attended his aunt's birthday party and his mother thought to ask me if I would take them. Well, of course I had to say yes. I mean, they're family and I can't let them go to the shelter. At least with me they'll never be put down and Shaun can come visit them whenever he wants.

My DB was less than approving, of course. Now, I don't want to give the impression that Nyron doesn't like cats; it couldn't be farther from the truth. He and Spirit have this incredibly strong bond that never ceases to amaze me. He just feels concerned about whether or not I'm at a time in my life where I can take care of three cats. And it's true, I'm not really. For one thing, I'm about to move again. My parents have sold the house I'm living in and I have to start looking for townhouses as soon as I hear back from their real estate agent. But the fact of the matter is, this is family and these cats need me. Of course, I wont be able to take in foster cats now, I'll already have quite a full house, but I don't mind. And it's always something to consider again when I'm in a more stable situation in life. : )

Pictures to come when they arrive on Tuesday.
