Meesi. Bud. Buddy Pal. Meesa. Meesins. Siamese; these are all nicknames I’ve come up with in the last year of having Leila in my life. I think “Bud” is probably the most used, simply because my baby Siamese has transformed into my serious buddy. She’s my pal. I can’t believe it’s been a year since this girl blessed me with her presence. Over the span of this past year, I’ve come to believe that perhaps Leila was put in my life by way of my heart cat, Edison.
It’s officially been a week since Leila joined our family, and a productive week it has been. While Leila was never shy, she did take a day or so to get comfortable with her new surroundings. Leila fits in extremely well with our other animals…most of them. Sadie hasn’t been too thrilled but she’s coming around.
July was the three year anniversary of my Edison running away. Edison was my heart cat. I had a bond with Edison that I didn’t know was possible with a cat. When I lost him, the grieving process was terrible. In fact, I was so heartbroken from Eddy running away that I couldn’t bring myself to get another cat. However, Matt and I have been wanting to add a kitten to our family since we moved into our new home. I decided I was finally ready. We’ve waited for the right opportunity because we didn’t want to make any impulse decisions. Well, Wednesday was the day, and I would like to introduce to you my baby Leila, our new Siamese cat!
