Eleanor and Brandon both celebrated birthdays last week. There were phone calls and Zoom meetings with friends, and the best surprise birthday serenades from the sidewalk. Earlier today, we returned the favor for another family member’s birthday. We sang and danced in front of their house to YMCA and I maybe drew a fake mustache and dressed like a construction worker and then realized my face would be covered with a mask? I think the look still worked though, honestly.
And we’re fostering cats! The timing worked out so that I could pick them up and bring them here on Brandon’s birthday. They’re sisters and shy (Samantha especially), but so sweet. They’re also beautiful. So smol! Jeannie is a calico, and Samantha has patches of black and white.
You can tell which one was easier to get a photo of! Both cats are available for adoption as a bonded pair through the Animal Care League here in Oak Park. I imagine they’ll be here with us for a while since shelters are still closed, but reach out to the ACL if you’re interested.
My family is of course hoping I’ll say we can keep them.
