Getting Inked and Getting Patrick

We have a couple of new additions. First- the cute one. Dear husband relented and agreed to *gasp* a new kitten. His name is Patrick and he has been here one day. He is pretty cute, don't cha think? He is just the right mix of cute, playful, purry, curious, hyper, naughty and sleepy. The jury is out with our veteran cats. One is still in full hiss mode and the other is warming up to the little guy.

Dear husband was sweet. "Did they potty train him yet?"

Next up is my new ink. I am getting a tattoo on my stomach. You would think my mid-life crisis would have been over with the boob job and the tummy tuck......... Anyway, breast cancer is the gift that keeps on giving. I was given a 24" scar above my pants line from the reconstruction. Hated it-looked like a shark attack. So cherry blossom branches are in the works. No black and very few blossoms are planned. I have all the main branches and some leaves done. Note inflamed areas. I had no idea tattooing was so painful- like a sunburn for a few days.

If you look close you can see the scar lurking. Trust me, it is much more noticeable in live flesh. And the tattoo is prettier in person too! It will probably be done in a few weeks.

Love, love, love the tattoo. Way better than the "prison tats" they gave us for the radiation.

New kitten? I love kittens. Wait til he figures out the keyboard and starts typing messages to your friends.

The kitten is sooooo cute.

The tattoo looks so painful but is very beautiful.
