House & Home


Living Room

Here’s a picture of our living room!

I hope that looks somewhat inviting, although I should’ve removed the two scratching posts nobody uses (one cat scratches this sofa despite the fact it’s almost completely surrounded by tables, baskets, and scratching posts, and the other three cats have completely destroyed a couch in the basement) and the pinwheel out before taking this photo.

This is but one of many, many, many photos for our adoption profile book, which I’ve been seriously working on for the past couple weeks. It has been hard and has taken almost every ounce of creative energy I have. There are three more photos I want to take and add and then we’ll do another round of proofreading and checking everything and it’ll be done! Maybe later today!!!!

After the book is done and in the hands of our agency, we’re ready to begin waiting for a match. It’s a weird thing to say, but I’m so excited to start waiting. I mean, I don’t love waiting, but we’ll be waiting to find out who our new family member will be, and that’s going to be pretty freaking awesome.
