This is the vicious Miss Luna, our friends, Ben and Alexis’ cat. She’s not that vicious actually, she’s more like the sweetest cat ever. EXCEPT when she gets out of the house in the middle of the night and jumps on top of our tent scaring the holy bejeezus out of us.
Luna is strangely similar to my Mom’s cat in almost every way. The first reason is that they both have the same name. The second is that they look exactly the same. The third is that they are both feisty. It’s kinda nice to have a little slice of home every once in a while.
On another note, Jillian and I went to our old house to look for our cat, Lulu, again today. We had heard rumors that she might have survived the earthquake (in which we were sure had been her untimely demise) and was living in the rubble of the house. We went today and saw two cats, neither of which were Lulu. We walked all around the house calling for her but saw nothing. Kind of a bummer, but nothing we weren’t expecting.
We’ll probably check one more time when we finally get the chance to dig some of the stuff we lost in the house out of the rubble. That has been delayed for now as the organization that Jillian used to work for isn’t allowing us to do it. It’s hard to see where our room used to be, see a pick-axe sitting right next to it, and not be able to start digging. Even if nothing is really recoverable, it would be nice to just have that closure.
