I'm the cat's mother

Sometimes everything just comes to a grinding halt and life takes a big old left turn.

4:30 PM my friend K calls me. "Come over here right now and bring your children."

Me: "What's going on?"

K: "You have to see what's here."

Well, guess what was there.

You guessed it. A kitten. All black, approximately 8 weeks old, a little girl. She's gorgeous, but in this picture she looks sort of like a cross between a bat and a bear cub.

K couldn't keep her. So guess who was at the store at 7:00 buying cat litter and toy mice?

Saber is in the dark about the whole thing. He won't like it one bit. I'll be off to the vet tomorrow for a checkup, but I'm pretty sure this is the fourth child all those psychics predicted I would have.

OH! How sweet! You couldn't help but fall in love with a mug like that! You are such a wonderful person to take her in. Give her a big ole hug from me :)

Congrats on the cute new addition to your family!

Cassandra said...

Ooh, she's adorable. Tell the little minx, her auntie CC will send catnip asap. LOL

What are you going to name her? Or does she already have a name?

Aw, she's divine!!!

Looks ever so much like my own Mulder, only with a tail. :)

Too cute!

Kristen Painter said...

I whole-heartedly approve. Cats make us better people, I think. Congrats on your new very cute addition!

Aww, so cute! looks so much like the last little stray we adopted. We always seem to find new babies to take care of. We have five.

Good luck and congrats on your newest child!

Much Love Always,

Thanks everybody! Topper is healthy so says the vet - who also proclaimed her a HIM. Who knew?? LOL.

He's settling in nicely. Now we just have to convince the dog that this is a good thing.

Hehe. Good luck convincing the dog it's a good thing. You never know they may end up the best of buds.
