When we rescued the kitty, our original plan was to hold onto him until someone else could take him. Well, on Monday when DTTF told me he had talked to a friend who agreed to take him, I cried. In fact, I bawled a couple of times. Finally DTTF told me that if I really wanted to keep him, we could.
So I thought about it, weighed my heart against my head, and talked it over with DTTF a bit more. I love the idea of Tree Faerie growing up with a kitten, and he’s just so adorably fun and full of life. I know he’s going to need a vet trip or few to get shots and fixed. He’s going to tear things up and break things. All in all, I just did not want to give him up. So, I called our friend back and told her she couldn’t have him.
When we decided to keep him, we also decided we needed to come up with a name that we could agree upon. Because of his big ears, his cuteness, and his feistiness, we settled on Gizmo, named after the Magui in Gremlins.
