Andy knows that I've always...okay not always, but since after I was introduced to The Young Ones maybe ten years ago or so...wanted an orange male tabby that I would name Vyvyan after the sociopathic punk character in The Young Ones (yes that one in the user pic). This week Andy made that wish a reality and gave me my birthday present early. Meet Vyvyan.

(his first night, still a scaredy cat)

Actually Andy freaked me out. I came home on Thursday and he was sitting on the couch, in the dark and used the words "we have to talk" and "I haven't been honest with you." He said "we're going to have someone living here." For a minute I thought that he had a friend in Vegas who needed to get out and needed a place to crash or maybe one of our friends was in trouble or something.  "Okaaay," I said hesitantly. "His name is Vyvyan..." Andy started and went on to  explain that he'd be picking up the kitty after work on Friday. I was so excited!

I kind of wanted to play a joke on people on Facebook by posting a vague status update like "expecting a new member of the family" and make people think I was talking about a baby human but that's kinda cruel...not to the folks who know me well and would know I was bullshitting but to my acquaintences who wouldn't know I was joking. My friend Samantha did that on FB while I was in London, actually going as far as posting an ultrasound picture and the joke didn't go over well. Kinda wish I had the balls to do that thogh. I'm such a pussy. Speaking of pussy...

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr.

He's still a bit skittish but he's coming out a little bit. He's got the whole downstairs bathroom to himself for now and his secure spot is behind the sink. He's been hiding there most of the weekend but yesterday we were able to get him out and play and be petted by us. He keeps retreating back to the sink of course but we're making progress. I've also caught him a couple of times chilling in the sink bowl which is super cute but I haven't been able to catch it on camera yet. Beware, I've got a kitten, I'm going to be THAT person with taking pictures of my cat. And occasionally taking videos of the uber cuteness as well. :)

His happy place behind the sink.

Look at that handsome little face.

End transmission.
I should add how wonderful Andy is. He finds ways to make me happy every day. I love him so much. I'm a very lucky girl. <3

That's okay Mir. It was bound to happen......sooner or later. *crash*

Be careful now. Vyv may get bored without the rest of the group around.

ha ha ha. :)

No need for the rest of the character. Vyvyan is my favorite. Though one might think it's bad to name a kitty after a sociopath I name my folks cat Patsy and she turned into more of an Edina (fat and lazy) so with my luck Vyvyan will probably be docile and a scardy-cat. He is thus far anyway. Docile's good though.

Awwww, so cute! Where did Andy get him from? Is he a rescue? :-)

He got him from an adoption place up on Roosevelt. I guess Vyvyan's mommy was a feral cat. I don't know too much of his history beyond that. But yes it was a rescue place not a pet store. :)
