So, we got a cat! After several weeks of research, I found a beautiful Siberian named Danslav–Danny for short–from a breeder. It’s quite an adjustment from a dog, but we are being entertained on a daily basis. Siberians are supposed to be the most like dogs, so this was a nice compromise.
Danny is a brown tabby with white.
His tail is like a raccoon’s–very bushy and striped.
Danny is a year and a half old, but acts like a kitten. He flies through the air from place to place and climbs everywhere. Just when I think the house is cat-proofed, he gets into something else. I cannot believe how fast he moves, especially after having a dog that was nearly 18 years old.
As you can see, Danny’s eyes are greenish-gold and he has a pink nose. The pads on his paws are bright pink! They almost look like cotton candy.
All photos were taken with my iPhone. I didn’t want to freak Danny out with the big camera when he was still adjusting to his new surroundings. I think he looks a little dubious in the photo above.
We bought a cat tree and Danny seems to love it. You can kind of see how big his paws are in this photo. When he flexes his paws they are huge. I guess that’s for traction in the Siberian snow. Siberians have a waterproof coat for the cold too. Luckily he doesn’t shed everywhere.
All for now. I promise to not bore you to death with cat photos. :)
Hope your week’s going well so far. We had kind of a medical emergency this week, so I’m behind on commenting. Everything’s fine now, so I hope to catch up soon.
