New Family Member

I was on my way home from work yesterday when the urge to stop at the pet store struck me. We had been talking about getting Ford a companion for sometime now, but have never followed through on it. I stopped at Pet smart yesterday afternoon in hopes of finding a name tag for Ford, and couldn't resist looking at the adoption center. That's where I was approached by a lady holding 2 teeny tiny kittens. She asked if I was looking for a cat. In which I replied, kinda. Yes we have talked about getting another kitty, but it was never said that we would. My husband loves animals as much as I do, but having a cat was new to him. I wasn't sure how he would take having 2 cats.. And if it were left up to me I would have come home with both the kittens the lady had plus all the cats in the adoption center.

So I called the hubs and asked what he thought (he said yes!). The lady had told me that she had watched someone in a truck toss these poor babies out onto the side of the road. She picked them up but is not able to keep them due to her dog, trying to eat them. She placed the kittens at 6 weeks old. I think they are a little bit younger than that. It seems like our new baby still has trouble focusing his eyesight and he tried to nurse on the hubby's shirt.

Ford is not too pleased with me right now. He did not like the little intruder at first. He is still a little wary of the baby, but he's accepted that its not going away. We had not realized how big Ford was getting untill we saw the itty bitty kitten next to him!

The new kitten does not have a name yet, I was told by the lady I got it from that its a boy, but I'm not so sure. It's still quite young and its hard to tell.. So we are just calling it baby or tiny for now..

Looks like a comfy place to sleep..

All tuckered out after a day of exploring the new house..

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend and Happy Mothers Day to all you wonderful mothers out there!

Oh My Goodness, he's a tiny little thing at that. I hope Ford learns to love him like his own. Cats are kinda funny that way. I think you should call this one Chevy.
