New Addition

Not of the human kind or the building kind, of the kitten kind. A friend found a mama and litter of kittens in the crawl space where her furnace is and took them in. We just adopted one of the litter from the rescue group that is taking care of them. Her name is Clover and she's ridiculously cute, which is a good thing, because I said I was done taking on the job of having animals. Now we're back at the beginning. Here she is using my shoulders and pony tail as a hidey-hole. She actually took a nap draped across the back of my neck.

It's all good. It gives the kids something to be responsible for, and they actually do the work I have to say. They always remember to feed and walk and take care of our animals, so it all works out. It will be fun to watch her grow and progress from scared and hiding all the time to confident and sleek. So far our other animals have taken little notice of her, so hopefully the gradual introductions will go smoothly.


  1. Cutest scarf!

    You've just upgraded you "name" to "the lady with three cats and Annie!"
    Talia would love to meet this little one I am sure. =)

  2. that's great!! She looks so adorable, I can't wait to meet her!

  3. Very cute cat. I love cats, they are great.

  4. You are such a great mom getting your kids a pet. I've been feeling guilty for not getting my kids a dog they've been begging for. You look adorable with your new baby!

  5. Wow. She IS cute. Good luck. I'm not there yet, and boy am I glad.

  6. Cute, cute kitty. I think if we ever get a pet, it will have to be a cat. But the thought of having one take a nap draped across my neck doesn't appeal right now--since it's HOT and we don't have AC!
