Rainy days make being inside doing the laundry not so annoying.

Waiting at the gate of the Amsterdam U.S. Consulate is intimidating. So intimidating, in fact, that they don’t want you to photograph it.

Nevertheless, that is where I had to go this morning to complete step 2 in the 5-step process of Obtaining My Dutch Residency Permit.

Then I was off to Den Haag for step 3: Get the same form “legalized.”

After all was said and done, we paid €53 for a piece of scribbled-on paper.

And we couldn’t be happier about it.

In cat years I suppose Ludovico is a teenager, but that doesn’t excuse his behavior.

Our once cuddly kitten has turned into a furball of fire, determined to disobey whomever or whatever tries to tame him.

We have taken to joking that he thinks he’s a rattlesnake because of the way he likes to sit stone still and then — without warning — attack nearby hands and feet with his razor-sharp fangs.

He does have a soft side every once in awhile, though, and I’m so glad he allowed me to capture it. Maybe he knows that someday soon I will need a way to remember the sweet kitty he used to be.
