We are excited to share our good news!
Our family has expanded
by two kittens!
The whole thing may have started with mouse activity "near" (maybe in) our house.
the truth is I/we love animals!
I grew up with kittens and cats and we are thrilled to once again have them in our life!
The children are giddy!
Kitties need love and we have a lot of extra love to go around!
After visiting the kitties and having filled out the required paperwork our "dossier" was sent to
"Saved By A Whisker"!
And we were "matched" with these two beautiful boys!
Once we did our kitty "home study", "background check", "fingerprinting", swore on the bible that our babies will never be declawed or go outside...
We got to bring them home!
We gathered 6 of our most responsible children and our new kitty carrier,
and headed out for our
The other children waited patiently at home!
After two hours of Kitty education 101 we
returned home with our new babies!
In my lifetime I have had amazingly wonderful kitties
kitties that were...
less than stellar...
(okay downright mean)
It's important to us that these kittens grow up to be amazingly wonderful family pets!
We don't want a repeat of the-
less that stellar cat we previously owned (many years ago)!
So we made a "cat room" and we did a little home education on how to treat the kittens.
Ava is a kitty whisperer!
Ava and Sarah are my helpers.
Melissa, Emma and Ellie have a kind a peaceful spirit around the kittens.
Anna, Ben and Mia are improving everyday!
Our wonderful Sam, Abby, Madeline, Luke and Joey are kind, loving, tender, impulsive, "oops" kinda kiddos- we keep our eyes on them!
For the kitties safety and training they are in their kitty room with their toys, food and litter.
They will be introduced to the rest of the home slowly and then be "freed" from their kitty room, when they are a little bigger and able to get out of the way if necessary!
We want them used to lots of kids, being held, petted, loved, manicured and played with...
I think my staff will be able to handle the job!
(check out the kitty pail in the background!)
No stinky litterbox for us!
On top of that, we are getting free pet therapy at our house!
your probably getting a little sick of kitty pictures!
they are just soooo cute,
we couldn't decide which ones to put on the post!
Their given names were
Mike (Wazowski) and Sulley from Monsters Inc.
So far we are keeping the names...
although if you have any names you love please put them in the comments!
Obviously we are obnoxiously in love with our kittens!
Then we got the call from the Pet Adoption "agency"!
Actually it was an email that said...
Their sister's adoption had fallen through...
And this little beauty was now available!
It was actually her picture that brought us to this particular spot...
So in the interest of keeping
adopted her, too!
It sound like such a happy story...
Well, the boys had been home for a week and they forgot they even had a sister...
They were not as welcoming as they could have been...
We had just a few people in the room for the initial reintroduction.
The rest watched from the windows!
We were told there may be some hissing when they see each other again.
I thought maybe 10 hisses would happen.
about 100 happened!
Luke was not happy with watching from the window...
But others made the most of being banished from the kitty room!
Even the doggies watched!
Mike and Sulley are quite a bit bigger than"Celia".
And Mike felt it was necessary to let her know who was the boss...
Celia wasn't having any of it...
She continued to stick up for herself and hiss.
And play with their toys which were now her toys!
Sulley has the white stripe down his back-
He watched her closely but he wasn't as assertive as Mike...
So after lots of hissing and redirecting we put the boys in the kennel.
After she seemed more relaxed and comfortable we let them out and continued to "redirect" if they started towards her,
That night we had 3 peaceful kitties sleeping in their own space!
An by the next day we had three cuddly kitties sleeping together!
If so, can you help us with the names?
Some of our kiddos have speech issues so Sulley and Celia sound alike and Celia is hard for them to say.
So we have thought about calling Celia-
That's the little girl in the movie.
What do you think?
Any other thoughts?
