Kitty


We added a new life to our family yesterday. Well, sort of. We're keeping this little tyke in the garage so clearly she's not an actual family member. (I'm all for distinguishing between humans and animals.) But, regardless...meet Kitty. 



It's true that I've been a notorious cat hater my whole life. But long story short, some people we know had kittens they needed to get rid of. Devin loves any pet he can have and cats are low maintenance. Plus, I figured I would be able to like a cute little kitten, so that hopefully by the time it's a cat, I won't despise it.


The proud kitten owner. This man just really loves animals. And I love him in spite of that. :) I should also note that he is NOT sporting a goatee (sp?) despite what may appear to be one - come on people, he's not 40.


Okay - so she's super adorable. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying her.

Henrik has "petted" her a couple times but loses interest fast. I think in the next couple months he'll really start to like her though. Oh and by "petting", I mean grabbing her ear with his insanely strong grip...poor kitty.

Devin wants to call her Megan. Or possibly Joan. Or Betty. (He may or may not have been listing off names from the cast of Mad Men.) I wanted to just call her "Kitty"...we'll see. For now she's Kitty until we agree on something else. Though, I'm warming to Megan.

Great post. I'm agreeing with Leah and loving that last picture. It's so cute how H is looking at Kitty. And Devin looks so very proud. You just look sweetly submissive;)
