Cat vs. Kitten

As you all know (or if I have new fans, then you don't), my beloved cat named Jack died last year. He was an awesome cat and I was very sad when he was gone. Clint never wanted a cat and when he came home and found Jack upstairs, let's just say he wasn't thrilled! Well, he adjusted and soon he was carrying Jack around the house singing "My buddy! My buddy! Wherever I go, he goes! My buddy!" Pretty much the best thing ever!

Well, I have had the itch to get another cat for quite a while. I knew that I wanted to wait until we moved because I know moving can be hard for pets sometimes. I also just had a lot going on. Well, now things are settled and I want to get a cat! My mom has two awesome cats named Mercury and Persephone. 

They are Oriental Shorthairs. At first I thought they were a little crazy but then I realized they were the coolest cats ever! However, Oriental Shorthairs usually only come from breeders and they are around $500. Each. Yeah, ridiculous. The are cool because they are really outgoing which is a plus for our crazy dog. I don't want a lazy or scared cat that can't cut it with ZoBo. They also do not shed! Bonus! Clint said I can get the cats if I find a way to make an thousand dollars. Well, if it was easy there wouldn't be so many homeless people now would there?

So I started looking online at craigslist and pet shelters and such. I found these cute kittens on craigslist today.

Now I have a predicament. Even as I write this Clint keeps telling me to save up to get the cool cats. Who knows?


I finally got all the videos to upload correctly. So you can go back and check out the San Diego Zoo post and the Santa Cruz post for a few cool videos! I also forgot to upload two random videos so here are the final snippets from the California roadtrip adventure:
This is Stone snoring hardcore in the hotel. The video doesn't do it justice because he was really loud!

This is Lindsay ridiculously long and bump 'driveway'.

California Roadtrip: San Diego

For my last day in California, mom and I went to the San Diego Zoo! It is only about an hour away so not too much time in the car (because obviously by now I was a bit over car rides!). We even splurged on the fun drink with straws! Warning: there are a lot of pictures. I didn't feel like picking through, so I just uploaded them all!
We rode the Skyfari across the park.

Our awesome beverage!

A hot polar bear.

A very phallic looking light pole.

Mom does not like warthogs.



A very large hippo butt.


These dudes are HUGE!

So cute!

I freakin loved the porcupine!

Someone's stuck.

I love lemurs!

Rhino explosion.

That's where the explosion came from.

This was like 5 feet in front of us!

All the cats at the zoo were in a pacing mood.

The lions were the only lazy cats.

One of the prettiest animals there!!

Also gorgeous!

Fun Day!!
The San Diego Zoo is gigantic! However, they don't have the most impressive animals all around. Their bears are extra lame-o! They also have so many monkeys and birds! Except no chimpanzees! What the heck!

Fun day though!
