Throw Back Thursday: Two years ago!
Two years ago – well, two years and a few weeks ago – our neighbor came knockin’ with a kitten in her hand. Any guesses who that kitten was?
That’s right, it was Stompers! The neighbor and her daughter had rescued wee Stompers from a dog. He was still young enough to require bottle feeding and she works long hours, so wouldn’t be able to care for him. I was glad to take him, because LOOK at that face.
He was a total mess when we first got him, but he bounced back quickly. We named him Cicero (we were going with a potato-naming theme at that point – Fred got to choose the name, but I had to talk him out of using the name Flava), but he became Stompers within days, due to the self-confident way he stomped around.
Seriously, I was surprised to realize that it’s been two years since we had baby Stompers here. I would have sworn it was only a year ago! If you go to the post from two years ago today, there’s a video that will melt your face right off your body, it’s so cute (and also, the introduction of Brandywine and her babies!)
Camera strap! As Davout and Rhea could tell you, it’s the best! toy! ever!
When cats walk while they’re stretching their back legs, we refer to it as “monkey walking” for some reason. Kara is a monkey walking FOOL – she monkey walks all the time, and it always makes me laugh.
