Big Day here

It has happened AGAIN. I was INNOCENTLY getting medications for our dog George. As I waited in the Veterinarians office my head looked toward the Bulletin Board. YA the ones with PLEASE ADOPT this or that animal.


The gentleman in front of me was picking his dog up from surgery and the wait time was longer than usual. So there I was, needed to entertain myself………………………… That is when IT Happened.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pictures no less, I sighed and told myself NO NO NO! Myself did not listen too well. I took the phone number down anyway, thinking I would, on the drive home, talk myself out of the mad desire to get kittens.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It did not work!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Later in the afternoon I assembled a new bed, toys, new feeding dish etc. I think SUCKER is written across my forehead! I called the number and the lady sounds so nice…MAN am I an easy mark or what?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So all the way to Richmond and all the way back pondering names for the soon to be brother and sister littermates. Yes, for sure I am excited. I will pick up these wee ones late this afternoon after they have been vetted. Also George will have time to re settle on from our trip.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BUT it gets BETTER, I think! I talked to the lady last evening about sending pictures via e-mail so my Sweetie could see what was coming here. She, the lady said, {I paraphrase here ~~ “would you consider taking the MOM Cat?”]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ YIKES and YE GADS…I tip toe into the Family Room and interrupt my Sweetie and the Steelers Football Game…I get the comment from my Sweetie “Go for it”! Awwwwwwwwwwwww he is so sweet!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So here it is three new felines. Already talked to the Vet today and we are scheduling “Mom” to be Spayed etc prior to her coming here, Safer that way for sure. Perhaps Thursday the Mom will have been scheduled for surgery and recovery time might be this weekend. YE GADS!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BUT wait, look at them, aren’t they just tooooooooooooooo cute? Now to watch them and decided upon names…
Shades of: The music for "My Favorite Things"
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.
Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles.
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings.
these are a few of my favorite things
Life is GOOD

You are such a good person! Both you and your sweetie have great big hearts and I love how you have room for needy creatures. I can see how those little kitties stole your heart - they are precious. Hope we see some pictures as they grow up.

Thanks Sarah, still mulling the name Blake over…

Ha HA O.W.T. for sure pictures. The wee ones have settled down quite a bit and do not dash away when we go back to their temporary quarters.

Alyssa we have done this so many times before. It seems each time; we pause and say NEVER AGAIN…obviously both my Sweetie and I are pushovers.

What happened to the third little kitty? Your husband is certainly a more understanding person than I am or maybe he was so into the game? Good planning to broach the subject when he was so engrossed. :)

The kittens are too cute. My wife would immediately have taken them all too. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately we have this maniac cat who will attack any cat that's around. He only barely gets along with the dog. He's been beaten up by several un-neutered wild males but he still doesn't give up and goes out for more punishment. I think he's more than a little tetched in the head but a good deterrent for controlling impulsive cat adoptions.

Actually we both seem to be easy marks for lost kittens and stray dogs.
The Third kitten was adopted by some one else.

Mom cat just came today, she was spayed, the kids, NOW NAMED missed her and everyone is getting along just fine. She is a diminutive female and quite affectionate AT THIS POINT!

Last night Hubby brought each kitten into the family room and petted him or her. Hubby is a softie…
