First off, I must apologize for not having a recipe today. If you’re a regular at Smart Cookie, then you know I post everyday of the week except for Saturdays. I promise I will make it up to you by posting a recipe tomorrow.
In defense of my lack of recipe today, I got a tad caught up in the commotion last night, and I didn’t have time to write a full post. Excuses, excuses. You see, I just brought home two new members of the Smart Cookie family last night.
Meet Winnie and Mina, my two little babies.
I really feel like a new mother. I’m so happy, it’s obnoxious. Ever since these two furry sisters came home, I haven’t been able to stop smiling.
Mina, the black cat, is named after the woman in Dracula. Winnie (Winifred) is named after one of the witches in Hocus Pocus. I intentionally chose Halloween-related names since it’s that time of year. My babies were born only a few weeks ago. They’re little, rambunctious balls of fire, but when they settle down, they’re the cutest darn things on the planet.
I only intended to get one kitten, but I completely fell in love with both of them, and I couldn’t bare to leave one behind. Mina and Winnie were called the “boat kittens” at the sanctuary I adopted them from because they were found under a boat with the rest of the litter. The sanctuary also located their mother, took them all in, and let momma kitty raise them. They are so unbelievably affectionate that I can hardly take it. They have stolen my heart entirely.
I’ll bring you more on Mina and Winnie in this week’s edition of the Weekender.
