these two turned ten months old last week & are settling in to personalities. what i’m finding amusing right now is that, as la is getting to the it’s too hot to work mid-day time of summer, i’m in the process of adjusting my sleep schedule—i get up early & work late while taking a mid-day rest. the irony is how the cats were just settling into my old routine, and now i am the one keeping them up at night.

nevertheless, it’s quite nice to have something to care for. i’ve never wanted kids, but these two were found near death on the street & now i get to make sure they have a good life. in this world, i can’t really see bringing some soul out of the energy & forcing it into mortality a kind decision. but keeping these two as far from the life they first experienced seems a path worthy of walking.
