So on September 10th, our little kitten Matrix joined us in our humble abode.
But actually, he stayed the night with us a week prior!
We had been out at a bar near our place, and on our way home at about 2am with a friend we saw him running around on the road. We tried to play with him, but he wasn’t having it, so we just walked home… and he followed us right into our apartment! While we watched him explore his new surroundings, our friend jokingly suggested we name him Matrix.
The next day we took him to the Humane Society, where they told us he wasn’t microchipped. He stayed with them for several days, waiting to see if someone would claim him, before we adopted him. Thinking about naming him just got us more attached, and we couldn’t bear losing him after he had clearly chosen us!
Now he’s nearly four months old (tomorrow!) and we decided to name him — you guessed it — Matrix.
We even watched The Matrix with him as soon as we could 🙂
