I got my kitten happydayswoo!

It is May!

I'm just going to cut right to the chase....

I got a kitten!!

I meant to post this the day after I got him and ask you all to give me name ideas but I just haven't gotten around to it.
We ended up naming him Jonesy... full name: Dr. Jones.
Don't judge.
It was going to be Oliver but the bf didn't really like it and came up with Dr. Jones which I think is cute enough.
Yes, we do like Indiana Jones in case I left you with any question.

Here is the story!
Last Friday (April 30th), I was browsing craigslist for kittens, like usual, and I came across this one post for 3 kittens who were found at a dump in a SEALED box.
They just happened to be heard by a worker and taken to a rescue shelter.

People are just completely fucked up, btw, but that a whole other story.

I instantly fell in love with the picture of Jonesy (previously "Squirt").
I wanted him so bad that I wrote out my argument for Jonathan.
Operation "Get Squirt" was the official name.

So Jonathan came home for lunch and I showed him my paper and pleaded and told him how badly I wanted, nay, NEEDED him.
He said some of the following things:

"God, I don't want to drive an hour and a half to get him."

"This is such a bad idea, I don't want a cat."

"I don't know, I'll think about it."

"I don't want to pay $75 for a kitten, we can find one for free."

He left and I wasn't feeling too positive.
He hadn't given me an answer and I wanted to know so I could make an appointment to get him before he got adopted by someone.

Fast forward to 9:30 PM... the manfriend still wasn't home from work and he usually gets home a little after 7.
I called and he said he had a customer but he'd be home soon.
He came home shortly after and I was trying too not mention the kitten for a while so he wouldn't get mad then about 5 minutes later he said he had to close the car windows because it was going to rain tomorrow or something.
I was looking at stuff online and the TV was on so the mewing didn't register for a minute.

Basically my wonderful, loving, amazing, perfect, AMAZING boyfriend had taken off work early, found the craigslist ad, called and made an appointment to see him, and drove a total of 3 hour to surprise me with my perfect dream kitten.

I could not have been happier or more surprised.

He is so sweet and cuddly and playful and just perfect.
Better than I had hoped.
He snuggles with me all day and I certainly don't have a case of the lonelies anymore.
The best part is, Jonathan seems to really like him too and actually cuddles with him.
This picture made my life.

  1. I am not a cat person...BUT I am in love with Jonesy!! How sweet is your manfriend??? The Bio is my favorite thing about this post!

  2. That kitten is SO cute!! I'm so glad I fould your blog!

  3. Oh Bastina. I fear you have lost your mind and are a crazy cat lady at the ripe ol' age of 21.

    All I can say is I hope he isn't super furry...because then I can't come over ever because I will be pissed when cat hair is all over my black clothes.

    I still think you should have named him Sookie. Yes. I am totes bitter about it.

  4. Oh Jonesy is so so very cute and cuddly! how fun for you and your bf!! i love all the pictures and how curious he is. :)

  5. Thanks. Now I want a kitten!
