One More Mouth to Feed!

Meet the newest member of our family....his name is Bruce.  So, now we have 10 children, one golden retriever, and a black kitten.  I know, I know, really it's not a lot of pets.  We've had bunnies, hamsters, turtles, and guinea pigs in the past.  I'm thankful that we don't have any of those at the moment, but when my daughter came home with Bruce, I was not real happy.  Mostly because it's always the Mom who really ends up taking care of the pets.  Anna had really wanted a kitten for her birthday, but we said "no."  She'll probably be going away to college in a year and we will be left with her cat to take care of.  But she is such a good daughter and asked so nicely that when we were up at camp, my brother-in-law had some kittens to get rid of.  We caved and the rest is history.  Bruce is a pretty good kitten, as far as kittens go.  The main problem is that Matthew is obsessed with him and follows him everywhere.  Usually when he catches him, he pulls his tail and gets a scratch.  I guess Matthew will have to learn "cause and effect."  

He really is still a kitten, but look how big he is already! (above is a little friend we had over to play...that's not Patrick or Matthew : )


  1. Enjoy your new kitty! He is BIG!!! Hope your little one learns quickly.

  2. Be sure to get him fixed -an unaltered tom cat is nasty no fun to be around.


Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
