A New Furry Friend

Everybody, meet the newest member to our household! Her name at
the moment is undecided, we are thinking Kiyoko or Kaliko (Kah-
lee-koh). Although we have Kobe, I got him when I lived alone at
the age of 20. We think of him as our dog of course, but it was a
nice experience to pick out a cat together. We got her from the local
SPCA, which I recommend to anyone looking for a furry friend. It
was really saddening to see cage after cage, rooms full of neglected
animals who, like all of us, just want love and care. As much as I
wanted to give a new life to an older cat, the thought on cats and
dogs is that if one is a baby then they're more likely to be the best of
friends. There were some really young, extremely adorable kittens,
but our hearts were set on this six month old beaut. A kitten definitely
adds some energy to our home, running about wildly as if being
chased! I've heard before that animals adopted from shelters are
almost extra affectionate because of their appreciation - I would
have to say I agree! She follows us everywhere and all she wants
to do is cuddle, even with the dog. If you have a pet, please do
tell! I would love to hear about your non-human friend!

  2. daaaang, i cant believe that whole outfit is thrifted! that skirt caught my eye right away- i love the pleats and that soft, autumn-y color. And aww, your newest member is so adorable! Ive been dying for a kitten but my dad won't let me get one- so I now clearly am saving money to move out ;) She looks so soft and cuddly, I'm really excited for you!

  3. Ah, kitty! She's SO cute. Also cute? This entire outfit. I am seriously in love with this skirt, and it looks perfect with the hat and boots.

  4. congrats on the new addition to your family! what a beautiful cat. i totally agree that adopted animals are more affectionate. my dog is always attached to my hip. loving your pleated skirt too -- such a perfect autumn color!


  5. oh my goodness she is BEAUTIFUL!!! Her orange & white reminds me so much of our little Mr. Mango but the fluff of our little Lila. That's so wonderful she's so sweet and cuddly with you all and even the dog. We adopted ours as well and we couldn't have been more happy w/ the shelter, and being able to meet so many different kitties to find the best match. and, are you leash training her!? or was she already trained? if you have any resources on that, could you send them my way? Ours are indoor only cats after our first little one (Lila's brother) got attacked by dogs, and I always have it on my to-do list to leash train Mango because I know he'd love it (well, Lila loves being outdoors too, but she's definitely too skiddish for me to take her). also you look gorgeous here too; great skirt! And i meant to apologize for not replying to comments lately, I have not been much into blogging lately.

  6. My friend has two cats she takes on walks in their harnesses and she's gaining a reputation as the crazy cat lady in our neighborhood. Your kitty is adorable; I'm looking forward to the day I can get my own cat.
