Welcome Home, Holly Kitty!

Ahh! I'm so excited.

Sunday after Dan and I enjoyed pedicures in the neighborhood, we decided to walk into the same pet store where we got Tiger six months ago. We were just stopping in to see the two shop cats, Stella and Jackson, and also to see if the turtle, iguana and other friendly furries were in there and hoping for a visit.

We turned the corner from the fish room and saw none other than this cute little face staring us down.

Between constant eye contact with us, nuzzling up against her cage and the fact that everyone who saw her (inside and outside of the store) stopped by to "awwww" we were hooked. We didn't walk into the store with the intention of adding a member to the family, but we took a day to discuss it and decided that we were ready for  a little kitty to love in our lives.

Monday night we picked up this little cutie, added a bag of dry food, a few cans of wet food, a litter box, some litter and a scoop! She's officially part of the family!

I haven't been around kittens much but Dan grew up with plenty of felines in his family.

I'm getting used to not being able to use verbal commands as you can with dogs, understanding that a wagging tail isn't a good sign and that a little baby needs all kinds of love and attention. Attention that we are more than happy to give!

She's a wild and rambunctious one - as I type this she's ripping around the house, jumping over Dan, bravely climbing the legs of the table and pouncing on mice and feathers like it's her day job.

When she's ready to snuggle though, she snuggles hard.

Pretty soon she'll need to get acquainted with the two golden sisters and hopefully it will go something like this!

I have a feeling this little girl will teach me a lot about myself and I'm looking forward to seeing Dan be a "Dad".

Welcome home, Holly!
