cats, robots, cramps, cake, and something...

i went to see WALL-E on sunday afternoon, and to say that i was in love with the film... well that might just be an understatement. so adorable. so... so adorable.

on the way there i stopped into petco (because i'm on a mission to get a wee kitten) to see if they had any animals there... just to browse mind you. petco in union square usually has a few "kittens" up for adoption. usually they are older kittens. well, i want a KITTEN... a small cat. kitten.

there was a young couple at the counter handling three kittens... five week old mewing little kittens. turns out, they found the abandoned kittens up on the UWS last week and have been trying to find a shelter or clinic to take them. however, everywhere seems to be full. one of the kittens has a cold, they came in to petco to get food and see if the adoption center would take them. turns out petco cant take animals younger than 8 weeks old. OBVIOUSLY i gave the guy my card... because although i can't take a kitten for two more weeks, i want one! BUT, i want to make sure that i'm getting a healthy kitten. even the prospect of getting a wee mongrel makes me all kinds of excited. like it was fated for me to walk into that petco and talk to that couple. fate i tell you.

and to top off all my domestic girliness (hurl), i baked a cake last night. the roommate has being says for DAYS that she wanted some chocolate... so i baked her a frickin chocolate cake. and might i tell you... it's pretty darn fancy.

what's happening to me!!

Yay for baby kitties! They are so cute when they are small, but no fun when they are sick. Both of mine are just getting over kitty colds from hell. It was awful. Giving meds to cats = no fun!

Good luck in the kitty quest!

Was Wall-E really that good? I totally want to see this movie.

Funny about the kittens. My cousin has a beautiful stray kitten that has been hanging around and well technically isn't a stray anymore. She had kittens a few weeks ago, well I guess a kitten is all that made it. She brought it around them for the first time two weeks ago. It was so freaking cute and tiny! I thought of you right off.
