Okay, here is the story on our new little kitten.  I had really been wanting a kitten for a while and finally sweet talked dh into the idea.  Our search was not easy, as everyone we contacted had already given away the kitties they advertised.  Then I asked our vet if anyone had mentioned having kitties for adoption and bingo, someone nearby had a litter of about 7-8 week old cuties.  Dh insisted we get a female and luckily there was one in the bunch.

Ds4 keeps saying the other kitties have grown since Ellie’s arrival…they feel bigger after carrying Ellie around for a while lol.  Sigh.  I know that all too soon she will probably be bigger than Mimi.  But right now we are all in kitten heaven.

Oh, update on the last post…my handy dandy super skilled dh fixed our a.c. problem and we are back in the comfort zone lol.


  1. She's cute and I can understand the jealousy! Lots of fuss over the older kitties should make it better.

  2. Ellie you are adorable! I love the pictures.
    Hope the older ones make up with her soon.


Thanks for stopping by!
