cats - how we got farva

 To celebrate Farva's birthday (March 23) I thought I would tell you the story of how we got him (the short version).

It was May 2007 and we had had Anakin for about 4 months. I started to feel like it would be nice for Anakin to have another kitty to play with (and i wanted a kitten). We got Anakin when he was already pretty much full grown so we didn't experience the silly kitten phase with him.

Ivan wasn't super into the idea at first so it was quite a while before I could convince him that we needed another furry friend in our lives. On May 23rd he finally agreed and that night while he was teaching guitar my mom and I went to the SPCA to check out the kittens.

I went into the room where they were keeping the kittens and this cute little black and white one came up to me and started licking my fingers. Right away I knew that was our cat! It was love at first lick, haha.

Here are a few cute Farva photos.

Ivan and I love Farva so much and are so happy that we decided to add a second kitty to our life. Happy 4th birthday buddy!

  7. oooh! That photo of Farva sleeping in a hand makes me go all melty inside. What a sweet kitty.

  13. So cute! Happy birthday! This post makes me miss my kitties. I had to move unexpectedly and leave them behind (they're being well taken care of with their new families and they didn't have to leave their home). I miss them so much

  14. Oh my god little Farvieee! So cute. I always pictured him and Anakin being the same age. Not sure why. I wish I could get another one sooo bad. Serious kitten addiction haha.

  15. thanks guys! i'll pass along the wishes to farva. he's not allowed to use the computer anymore, he got caught on some inappropriate sites...

    windsor grace, awww, i am sooo sad you had to leave your kitties. i think i would cry forever if we had to leave our babies!

    colby, just sneak home a kitten. everyone loves a kitten! (although...i would feel guilty being sneaky about it, i'm such a wimp)

  16. awww my god farva as a kitten totally looks like anabelle as a kitten.
    what a handsome and lucky kittie he is!!

    hahaha and bad boy too, was he looking up kittie porn? I always catch my girls trying to do that too, maybe they were on the same inappropriate sites together ;) meow haha.
