Introducing... the newest member of our family:

Well, finally I have gotten a cat! We always had at least one cat around growing up, my mom loves cats. Now all of us kids are very partial to cats too, except maybe Sharon who's allergic to them. A home isn't quite complete without a cat around. I have been wanting to get one since we moved into these apartments and they said we could have a cat, but we had to pay a pet fee. I finally decided that it was worth it. I looked in the ads and found a tabby kitten up for grabs! He is just about 8 weeks old and very playful. He is still getting use to us, but is warming up and very cute. I love the little kitten pounces and hopping around they do! I didnt' realize how much I missed a little feline friend. Anyway we named him Mitch, and right now he is cuddled up in Derek's lap taking a nap (I foresee that he soon will be Derek's little cat...)






I think he's a cute little thing, and the best looking of his litter! Now you can prepare yourself to see pictutes of him occasionally to supplament my posting subjects... hope you don't mind!


This picture is from when we were at Pig Out in the Park for labor day weekend (just like it sounds, food booths everywhere) and a couple was getting married on the stage! I thought it was cute, but very strange to get married in front of thousands of strangers eating ribs, cheesecake, hot dos, etc. I guess you certainly have the witnesses covered! I don't know if you can see it but she is wearing a white top hat. Anyway, congratulations to the happy couple!

if i wasn't alergic, we would have a kitty, it's kind of a good thing though, because mel's allergic too. he's so cute!

I love cats! Mitch is very cute. We are getting another soon! Is he an indoor cat only?

I would get a cat even though we have realized that I am allergic to them too, not bad like Sharon, but I get runny nose and itchy eyes...but Jared would be mad...and Jerry would kill it and have no remorse!

I really hope that you remember that brief time that Jessica Simpson lived with us. . . she was who helped me discover that I am allergic to animals. And that cats really should be spade or neutered or whatever it is.

Congratulations on your family addition. Oh, such a super cute kitten! I miss the days our cat was in that playful kitten phase. Now she lays around sleeping most of the day, except for an occasional "spaz cat" run through the house!
