I know, I know: the inter-webz abound with all things feline *eye roll*. So heartfelt apologies for adding one more kittenish post to the squillions already out there. Because, after a year of no pets at all and me being truly alone in the house during weekdays when kids are at school and the hub is at work, I finally caved.
Yep. There was a little fur-beast who needed a home so the Anderson household has a new baby... who is as yet unnamed, because even though I'm the one who feeds her, entertains her during the day, and cleans her litterbox, everyone else in the family seems to think that they have a say in naming her... and no one can come to a consensus. Sigh.
(Confession time: I've never had a kitten before -- I usually take on older cats who need homes -- so I was woefully unprepared for this little bundle of energy.) Anyway, I'd like you to meet our 10-week-old kitten, who's temporarily being called "Missy", short for Mischief. Though I'm telling ya, "Dora" is on the cards, because she certainly is an explorer!
As you can plainly see from where she likes to hang out, it's just as well I made my deadline before we got this little minx -- it's not exactly easy typing with one hand while cradling a purring kitty in the other and trying to convince her to nap! But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.
play with my kitten do some work now.
