I did what I said I'd never do...

I got the kids a cat...no make that 2 cats! My friends cat had a litter and she hounded me until I gave in and took one of the kittens home as a surprise for the kids. We live in the country now and the threat of mice outweighed my dislike for cats. We took home this sweet adorable little thing and my kids were fighting over it like they were starving and it was the last slice of bread at the table!!! So we "borrowed" the cat's brother the next day and "borrowing" turned into keeping. I have to admit, they are ridiculously cute and sweet and patient. Maybe I'm more of a cat person than I thought. We've had them for several weeks now and I haven't regretted it one bit..surprise, surprise!

WARNING - PLEASE READ!!! This post reveals that my children run around in diaper/underwear with messy faces and mangy hair...I apologize, but that's how we roll around here!









P.S. They're names are Tigger and Pooh. We already had the name Tigger picked out so of course his best friend would HAVE to be named Pooh. I kinda feel sorry for the poor thing though, how would you like to be called Pooh? It's pretty funny to listen to Lula calling out Pooh over and over again.

They are ADORABLE! You'll love having them around! And how can you go wrong with two orange kitty's? That's exactly what we have! BTW, do you still have your dog? How is he reacting to the cats?

I knew you'd live them Brenda! I know they'll still be as beautiful when they grow up as they are now because I've seen your babies.
We don't have the dog anymore. When we moved into the new house he wasn't handling it well. He was running away constantly and barking all day. We ended up finding an older couple that wanted to adopt him and it was a much better fit for him.

Jean will take all the credit for you becoming a cat person if you let her!!! Just warning you. Jean has a sign that says "cats are like potato chips, you can't have just one". You'll hear that a lot from her.
