More quirks

Paper has become a major staple in Aria's diet. It must contain nicotine, 'cause she's hooked.

She's also decided that clothing is too restrictive. Here's a nice view of how she stretched out her collar after trying to rip off her onesie.

Lastly, she apparently too cool to ride in her stroller. She rides on top now.

Moses (Mo Mo)

Because there was a risk that the original cat we'd hoped to adopt might have feline leukemia like his mother, we decided to adopt a different kitten, just to be safe. We got a sweet 3 month old gray cat, with some faint stripes. At the shelter he was very calm and somewhat timid, so we thought he'd be a good companion for our cat Mira, who shares those same traits. Little did we know that we were adopting a wild, crazy kitty! We almost named him Omni, since he seemed to be everywhere at once (omnipresent).

He's quite affectionate and we're glad to have him in the family. The only slight kink in the adoption process is that Tara is slightly allergic to him. We're hoping once he's neutered, that that will go away, since he'll then produce less dander.

Hiking Sabino Canyon

We took a tram up Sabino Canyon in NE Tucson and hiked down. It was a gorgeous day, but the hike took a lot longer than we'd expected. Since it had rained recently, the creek flooded, so we got wet on our way back.

Aria the Baller

Born to play ball


Just when we think she can't find anything stranger to do, Aria manages to find something new. Recently she's decided that bibs are restrictive and she will have nothing to do with them.

New Years & New Kitty

For New Years Eve we went to the drive in theater and caught a double feature: Despereaux & Bedtime Stories. Since we're in Tucson, it was a balmy 60 degrees, so we watched a good portion of Despereaux on the hood of our car. Not something you can do in Winter in other parts of the country.

We also went and found a new little kitty to join our family, due to the passing of our dear friend, Azure. This little guy is still too small to adopt, but should be coming home with us in 2 weeks. What should we name him?
