We did it. We got a kitten. Her name is Lia, which means “to cry” in Swahili. It’s pronounced like Leah. Her name is indicative of her actions which is simply to cry, cry, cry all the time. She is finally sleeping through the night. We’re hoping this behavior ends in two weeks. She’s still missing her mama cat and is scared to do too much on her own. We’re waiting for her natural cat curiosity to peak. We’re also waiting for her to get bigger so she can be a full fledged rat killer!
