As anyone taking a casual glance at the blog knows, I have been very preoccupied with Fringe. That said, I did manage to get to the big art fair at Nathan Phillips Square (more on that soon). And in the evenings, I did some internet browsing.
I stumbled across a site with kittens and cats for adoption. I was so drawn to one that looked almost exactly like my first cat, and apparently had many of the same characteristics. She was calling to me... As I said, I was fairly busy, and I was also slowly softening my wife's opposition, since she has never been a big cat person. Perhaps I should have at least emailed the site. But when I went back yesterday, she had already been adopted. So sad. The others just didn't do as much for me, and one or two clearly had behavioural issues.
What I will have to do, in order to move more quickly the next time, is make a real effort to clear out the space in the office where a litter box would go. I have to clean up the basement too, but in some ways this is a bit less daunting. Then perhaps I can get more serious about cat hunting this fall.
