Living in a new country always brings adventure into life. Therefore, I have decided to begin sharing some of them.
I have wanted a cat for such a long period of time. Finally, I decided when I graduated from college that I would go to the pound and bring one home as a graduation present to myself. When I realized that I would move to Mérida to work at Blas Pascal I decided that it would be best to wait to buy a cat. Then, I married a man who is allergic to cats! Although Noah is allergic to cats, but still has a huge heart. We were on our nightly walk when suddenly we stopped because of a sound coming from behind a building. It was the sound of a baby kitten. Noah was determined to find it, and I was excited that I was going to get to bring it home! We stood staring at a grassy area full of trash looking for this baby kitten. Determined to have a cat I considered walking through the trash in hopes of finding it, but after seeing a rat and a possum crawling around I decided against it. Then, we saw the cat, or what we thought was the cat. Noah thought that it was big enough to take care of itself. I continued trying to convince him that it was too small and needed love. After discussing and staring at the cat for about ten minutes we realized that it had not moved in quite a long time. Then, we realized that the "cat" was really a piece of "trash". There is a kitten somewhere in there, but we definitely did not see it.
Moral of Story: For adventure filled with rats and possums, walk in a grassy, trash filled lot behind an OXXO (convenience store).
