A Tale of Two Kitties
We're happy to introduce a new family member. We've adopted again, only this time it's a kitty!
We visited the Humane Society yesterday as a family. We'd considered the idea of getting a second cat for a while now. We went yesterday for fun really, and didn't fully intend to bring home a kitty. All of those precious cats who need homes just tug at your heartstrings though and we decided to make one ours. We would have brought home several if we could have. :) They are all so sweet.
We didn't tell Jadyn anything about the possibility of bringing one home until we were sure about the decision. She had no idea what the Humane Society was all about. She thought it was the pet store. :) When we asked if she'd like to bring one home and keep it, she was so happy.
Our new kitty doesn't have a name yet, but she's a girl and she's about 10 months old. She was found in Minneapolis as a stray. Now she has a home. She seems to have a very sweet nature and is just starved for love. She gets in my lap and lets me know, "You will love me and adore me." A ten month old has much more energy and curiousity than a 9 year old. She's already decided that the fish are great fun to watch and bugs are a delicacy. Oh good.
Here are photos of our new kitty and our older kitty, Lexi. Do you think they have anything in common? We didn't plan it this way, it just happened. Any ideas for a name?
