The Newest Member of The Zoo

Earlier this week, we bade a sad farewell to Sylvester, our elderly cat of 17 1/2 years (thank you all so much for your kind words!). For a relatively small feline, he packed a lot of presence, and the hole he left in our family was huge. I decided that what we needed was something to take our minds off that hole — a distraction of sorts.

Meet Abigail (Abby for short)…because really, what better distraction could there be than a new kitten, right? For all of us. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And heaven knows (pauses to move curtains out of reach) that I was just sitting around twiddling my thumbs (disentangles kitten from computer cord) and thinking I needed something to keep myself occupied (pries needle-claws from ankle) for the next year or two.

Good thing she’s so cute. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Must have been those needle teeth/claws in your ankle distracting you ;). I’ve been working SO hard to get hubs to let me get a kitten. I’ve been w/o my boy for a long time now but still miss him.

    Oh my god is she adorable! And I’m sorry about Sylvester ๐Ÿ™ It’s so hard to lose a pet, but he had a long, happy life with your family.

    How’s Charlie coping with the newest baby?
