slr2moons: a self-portrait, of me in my usual habitat: in front of my computer monitors! (Default)
Hi, everyone!

Yep, still here. C:

Not much has changed in my life, except for one new addition! Last November, I bought a Maine Coon kitten. :3 I wanted a Maine Coon, like my beloved Spicer-kitty, but I didn't want to deal with the congenital heart disease so ingrained into the breed. The only way you can try to avoid it is to know the parentage of a kitten, and said parents' heath. And the only way to know that for sure is to buy a purebred kitten. So I did. C:

I googled for "Maine Coon kitten Portland", and of the handful of true local results, my top pick actually had kittens available. So on Sunday, November 13th, I brought him home. Here he is, that very day!

Click for adorable kitten! )

On the drive home, I tried out the names of several fictional men with blond hair. Edward Elric, Legolas, etc, but when I tried "Shizuo", from one of my favorite anime sereis Durarara, he looked up at me, eyes wide and ears pricked. So Shizuo he is!! Just "Shizu", for short.

Next time, I'll share another pic and talk about him and Kakashi. Hope you enjoyed this cat-centric update!! And the kitty pic. :3
