New Addition to Our Family

I am very excited to share some great news! We have a new addition to our family. This has been something D and I have been talking about for awhile. We have seen a few before but passed them up as we were not sure we were ready for another just yet. So what did we add to our family? A beautiful kitten!

Last week a lady I support at work decided to take a kitten off another lady in the buildings hands as her daughter was allergic to kittens. Only to find out that the ladies roommate does not like kittens and the first lady I support is allergic also to cats and birds. Then the talk started as where and what to do with this adorable black kitten.

Question was who can take the kitten and give it a good home? I was nominated as the ladies I support know how much we care for our Marty. They ask me almost daily how he is and what he has been up to. This idea was one I thought I should think about over night. I figured D would be good with it but at the same time I wanted to just talk it over. My supervisor even suggest myself to adopt this kitty.

By the end of the night, here I was bringing a new black 7 week old kitten with me for an hour drive home. I put her in a cat carrier but she lasted maybe 5 minutes into the trip before getting upset. I opened the cage and she hoped on my lap where she laid the whole ride home. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She is also very playful which at times isn't what you want, like when you are trying to sleep. Over all I think we got a beautiful and affectionate kitty. Her name is Lily and she is pure black with about 10 white furs under her belly.

Now for a few pictures of our new girl!

Our Marty man is taking his new friend very well. Lily follows Marty around everywhere he goes and snuggles in when they sleep. They also play and eat together. The first night we were sort of afraid Lily wasn't going to adjust as she met Marty at 4 am and started to growl and put up her back, now they are great.

  1. So cute! I think I may be adding a similar addition to our home for my son's birthday. We saw these 3 adorable kittens at my aunts farm, playing in the hayloft - the chased the kids through the hay - it was instant love.
    Now, just....which one! LOL

  2. Sooooo cute! Reminds me of my Jynxy cat when she was a kitten.
