Meet My New Cat-Baby

I’d like to introduce you all to Calluna, my newly adopted cat-baby. She’s a black domestic short hair cat, just over a year old, and weighs in at a whopping 7 lbs.

My Cat, Calluna

She’s a rescue that I’ve adopted from a local shelter. They found her in someone’s backyard a month or two ago, but don’t think she’s feral at all. She must have been someone’s lost pet, sadly! Though no one had come to claim her, so she got put up for adoption. I brought her home last Friday night, the day after seeing her adoption page on Thursday evening! It was basically love at first sight. (When I saw her on the shelter’s website I was basically like “I MUST HAVE THIS CAT SHE’S PERFECT.”)

I’ve named her Calluna, after one of my favorite typefaces! (Which is used right here on this blog as the body text.)

I’m super, super happy. She’s adorable. Expect lots of impending cat photos on my Instagram. Here’s some I’ve taken already:

    Oh Erica, she is beautiful!! I love her name as well. You are one lucky lady to have such a beautiful new baby. Is this your second kitty? If so, how are the two lovelies getting along?

      She is my only cat, actually! I may get a second cat in the future, since her disposition is rather friendly. The other cat you might be familiar with is my boyfriend’s cat, Geist, whom I post a lot of photos of on Instagram. He’s the white long-haired cat w/ blue eyes.
