New Addition to the Family...

I am so excited to tell you that we have a new addition in our household!

This is Lilly holding the cat at Christmas. I promise she wasn't really choking her!

Well we don't actually have her yet but we will this weekend.

A few months ago a scrawny almost dead kitten walked into my dad's radiator shop. It was abandoned and neglected. He knew he could either feed it or let it die. He also knew the minute he fed her she would never leave him. But he did it anyway. She turned into the "Shop" cat. That was until it started getting cold over night. So my dad and his brother would take turns taking her home on the weekends. When the cat was at my dad's house her name was Mercedes.
When she was at Uncle Jr's house Aunt Marcia would call her Anna, Because she already has a cat whose name in Indy ( Indy Anna) :) My sister who is a huge animal lover would also take turns kitty sitting. She would call the cat Baby! My dad ended up bonding with the Kitty.
Unfortunately they are just too busy for a kitten, but the wanted it to stay in the family. Well i think they knew how much the girls loved the kitty and asked us to take her!

Well now it's our turn and we want to rename her. She is still a kitten so I don't think it's a big deal. Have any good kitten names?
I am so excited to have her in our house. I love cats and terribly miss my old cat Socks. Who is by the way, the best cat ever. Until he started peeing all over the floor right before I Gracie was born.
My girls love her so much and talk about her all the time. I just hope her and Marley - the dog get along. Marley is a good Lab and is very friendly, it's the Cat I am worried about.

Maybe I will have some cute cat stories to blog about in the near future!
