I do not think there has ever been a question if we were to get ourselves a cat or not. The question was when. When would it be the most convenient for us, and when would we be able to provide the best possible care for a little furry friend, and make it feel like home. Our origninal intention was to wait until fall, in case the summer got way too hot to stay inside with a cat, having to leave it home alone way too much. Turns out, my health is probably not that good, but I do not want to get into details before they figure out whats wrong, and before I learn to deal with it properly. But it has to do with fatigue. I will be open and positive about that too, when the time is right, so do not worry.

So we got ourselves a kitten yesterday, to keep me company as I am currently home a lot. It has become easier to feel like this after we got our own apartment. I feel like I can relax here, and that is what I really need right now. I feel it is important for me to say that I do not feel sorry for myself. I have been feeling like this for years, but I have gotten worse recently. I am good at dealing with stuff that does not make life "perfect", because in my head it is still a life to celebrate. It is the small things that counts, and it has never been a dream of mine to run a marathon. Even if I am not going to get better, my dreams are still possible to reach. As I wrote, I am not ready to talk about this yet, nor do I think it is much to talk about before I know for sure. But until then, I would like people to know that I am absent for a reason. I did not just stop to work, to blog, to be on social media, to text, to call and to be your friend. By explaining this, you will also know just how happy I am to have this furry friend right now.

Meet Milo Amadeus Mozart!

The first night and first whole day with the kitten has been interesting, a bit exhausting, but most of all, it has made my heart feeling all silly and warm. I have always been fond of cats, and those of you who knows me and my story, will know how much the cat I grew up with meant for me, as she was my friend (one of few) while I was being severely bullied. Animals in general means much to me, but there is something special about cats. I am not going to go all cat lady on you guys, despite having a plaque on my wall claiming that I am just that. Some of you will understand, some of you will not, and that is perfectly fine.

Little Milo makes sure we have our hands full. He is a mischievous little fellow, and he is all over the place, and gets worried if we get out of sight. When Martin came home from work this afternoon, Milo got so excited and ran towards him to greet him, and I think Martins heart grew about 7 sizes. He is still giggling and smiling about it.

We sure have our hands full...haha!

My dress is from ASOS, and I adore it.

I am starting to think he likes to pose. He is ridiculously photogenic, if I may say so myself.

It will be fun to watch him grow, and to get to know his personality. We cat people know just how different and weird these cats can be. That is what makes them so charming. Little Milo will not only keep me company while I feel poorly, but he will be great comfort those days anxiety knocks me off my feet. It does not happen that often anymore, but cats are wonderful when it comes to calming you down. It is even scientifically proven, so cheers to that!

Whooops, Milo is up to something. Better keep an eye on him. I will keep you fellow cat people updated on his development.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, it sure has been a while since my last one.
