Most of you who read my blog, also read Deb Mom of 3 Girls. And if you visit Deb regularly, you know that her cat Snuggly had kittens about 6 weeks ago. They have had to face the early passing of one of them and are now ready to send the rest of them on their way (except the one that EVERYONE is saying "I told you so" about).
So, yesterday, Noah picked up his brand new kitty, Pumpkin. Pumpkin was named in honor of the passing of a bloggy friend's kitty of that name.
The jury is still out as to whether Pumpkin remains part of our family or not. Minnie, our two year old cat, doesn't seem to enjoy having her territory trampled on, and my allergies don't seem to agree with our new little family member.
However, this baby is SO SWEET! He actually likes to snuggle with me, unlike Minnie.
The boys have been so good with him. Noah carried him out to the car,
talked to him all the way home,
petted him so long that she fell asleep,
and then he covered him with a blanket.
Aaron likes to kiss him,
sleep like him,
and even read him a story. Notice him showing the pictures to the kitten.
And boy does this kitty love to sleep in silly positions.
We had one scary moment when we thought he was lost, but Daddy found him under the recliner part of the sofa.
Like I said, I am still undecided about whether Pumpkin stays. If it were up to me, I am totally in love with this little guy. But allergies and an established cat are big factors. The problem is, now that I am in love with the baby, I can't just give him up to anyone...I want him to go to a good home. That must be the struggle that Deb is feeling as well.
I'll keep you updated as we progress.
