Back in September 2011 we arranged to adopt a (yet to be born) Abyssinian kitten and as any reputable breeder will insist, the kittens were only allowed to move to their new homes after they had reached the crucial age of 12 weeks. That put the adoption time around late December 2011. As we all know, there is nothing that makes time move slower than having to wait a long time for that very special something or someone…
We had to do something to make time move faster, after all we still had another 3 months to get through, but what could possibly make 3 months pass quicker?
It started with kitten proofing the house, slowly, we had to pace ourselves, but predictably with all the excitement, kitten proofing was complete in a matter of hours. So the next logical thing to do was equip our future child with everything she would possibly need; so off to the local pet supply store we went. After about an hour browsing around, we ended up leaving with the all important accessories: litter box, some random toys and the fluffiest bed in the shop. As would be the case, the bed was also made from the brightest pink material to ever have been created, but it was cute, so it went home with us.
Strategically positioned in the house, awaiting its future occupant, the bed sat, and glared. The cute factor was starting to wane, eventually (quite quickly I must add) becoming a gaudy eyesore. How could we possibly condemn our sophisticated little baby to the torment of sleeping in a bed which required UV protected sunglasses just to look at?
To solve this dilemma, required a trip to another (or many) pet supply store, right?
Wrong, shop after shop, they all offered similar things, gaudy bright things!
There was only one solution, if we were to get modern sophisticated furniture, worthy of a sophisticated baby, we had to make it ourselves.
And so KittiCraft was born…
The 3 months passed (not as quickly as we would have liked), but on the 9th of December 2011, we went to collect our baby Blue Abyssinian kitten, who we named Moon.
But wait there’s more!
Moon had a Ruddy half-sister 10 days older, who was just too adorable to leave behind, so Kiara came home with us on the same day.
Moon and Kiara are now the official KittiCraft Beta Testers, stringently testing each and every design to make sure that its acceptable.
As for the pink bed, its brought some cheerful tail wagging at Kitty and Puppy Haven…
