Flashback Friday - Kitties

Welcome to this week's installment of Flashback Friday!  Haven't heard of Flashback Friday?  Head on over to ChristopherandTia's blog to see what its all about and how you can participate :D

A few years ago, when I was a wee college Freshman, living in the dorms with my first ever roommate, we saw a sign in the campus post office for free kitties.  Now, living in the dorms you aren't allowed to have any kind of pet, not even a fish (which doesn't really make sense, no one is allergic to pet fish...) and of course we didn't agree with this rule and went ahead to just go look at the kitties. 


And we came home with two.  As a smaller person, I immediately bonded with the runt, a little girl (on the right), and my roommate brought back a rambunctious little boy (the bigger guy on the left).  They loved to sleep on our shoulders, laps, stomachs and chests as we procrastinated did homework.  We kept them for a few weeks then realized we couldn't afford them and the vet bills, so we gave them to some other students who would take good care of them.

This was not the best idea we ever had, but it also wasn't the worst ;)

awww, kitties didn't get to stay??

every time I see a kitten I want to bring it home with me. but its good that I don't. theres no way I could keep up with a little fluffy ball of claws, haha. I can't put them in time out like I can with my kids.

i used to work at an animal shelter, and you wouldn't believe the amount of students who'd sneak pets into the dorms. and then they'd end up just bringing them to the pound... so maybe not the best ending... but still.
