Wordless Wednesday: Aikku

…and the cat posts continue! This is Aikku–our baby of the bunch. We got her in July 2009, right after we moved to our current apartment. Every place we had been in only allowed two cats, but this building had no such restrictions, so I wanted to get a kitten. When I saw I Aikku,…
