December 2013 was the month I decided I wanted to trust myself to get another kitten again. Earlier in the year I had excitedly adopted my first ever cat but she unfortunately died in an accident that I blamed myself for. I still get emotional reading about and seeing pictures of “Polar” but feel free to read the blog post I made In loving memory of my calico cat.
Fast forward to December 2014 and now Lynxx is the new kitten in town. A almost completely different personality but bringing me and my family just as much joy. I purposely held back on sharing too many pics and videos of Lynxx like I did with my diary of a first-time cat owner series on Youtube when I had Polar.
In the year I have had Lynxx she has proven to very cantankerous, strong-willed and playful. Whether I am studying for exams, playing video games, hanging clothes on the line or sleeping Lynxx has been my pal and has probably taken just as much care of me as I have of her.
