Meet Sierra!

Things happen for a reason, and today is a good illustration of that.

I got pissed off at someone this morning after work and I ended up going to bed earlier than usual. I woke up around 1:00 PM, about a couple of hours earlier than I usually do.

Amber sent me a Facebook link to a kitten up for adoption at the South Bay Pet Adoption center in Hawthorne (my hometown).

Here's what she sent:

I looked at it and then went about my business.

But, I kept thinking about it and thinking about it. And looking at the picture again and again.

I thought I would call the shelter to see if "Claire" was still there and available. She was. I told them I would be heading over from the Valley.

Once I got there, I found that I couldn't take her home until after she's spayed, which would be Thursday. 

I went into the kitten room and met "Claire". Immediately after picking her up, she began to purr. That settled it! I went to the main lobby and completed all the paperwork. She's ours! If I didn't wake up earlier than usual, I wouldn't have been able to rush down to adopt her.

She's a 3-month-old calico-colored domestic shorthair (I think her fur is longer).

Above, meeting "Claire".

We can't wait for Thursday to come so we can bring "Claire" home. There will be one change: her name. I am not fond of "Claire" for a pet's name, so I decided to rename her "Sierra". Amber likes "Claire", so I suppose we can formally name her "Sierra Claire Vaquer".

I decided on "Sierra" for a name weeks ago. The first two letters are in honor of Siren. And, since Sierra will be traveling in the RV and going into the mountains on trips, I figure that would be an appropriate name.
