Meow, Meow

We got a kitten! Somebody wanted the kitten because they are cute and cuddly and hopefully will turn out to be a good mouser. Another Somebody did not want the kitten because of the hassle with traveling, the litter box and because they didn't want us to become "that family", whatever that means?! Another Somebody or other wanted a kitten because he can say "cat" and cause they are cute and cuddly and because he fell in love with Grandpa Wayne's cat last Christmas. So, we got the kitten. Well, we actually called and told the Cat-offer-person that we couldn't have the cat because Somebody #2 said no and Somebody #1 was scared of the wrath of Somebody #2 if we, Somebodys #1 and 3, brought the kitten home. Problem was, that the Cat-offer-person didn't check his phone messages and showed up at the house with the super cute kitten just before Somebody #3's bedtime. How could Somebody #1 and 3 say no????

Somebody #2 took the "new kitten in our family, hope ya like her" news, pretty smoothly. Somebody #2 was even spied snuggling with said super cute kitten. And Somebody #2 even carried her into our bedroom for some nap time snuggle/sleep time with us! Who could resist her? Not Somebody #1, 2, or 3!

We did hit a bump in the road with the kitten late last night. Somebody #3 woke up at 4am and did his barefoot stomp through our room over to Somebody #2's side of the bed and crawled in. The commotion awoke our new super cute kitten from her slumber amongst the sheets. She started to race circles around the three of us somebodys like she was a pace car in the Indy 500. My eyeballs flew open and I thought we, Somebody #3 and I, were in big smoke trouble!! Somebody #2 was not going to be happy. I, Somebody #1, was not happy. I was very, very sleepy! Long story/night short, we eventually all ended up in our proper beds and slept in till 8:57am!!! That was so lovely, but it was a Sunday morning! Thus began our mad dash to get ourselves fed, animals pottyed, showered, dressed, scriptures rounded up, treats prepared and out the door for church! Whew... um, we were late...

In case you might be wondering, super cute kitty's name is Evie, short for Evelyn and we l-o-v-e, love her!

It looks pretty impossible to not love her. Cute kitty. This story is really cute. Ephraim and Daphne tried to adopt a mole once, but only for about three minutes. I was like Somebody #2 and made them get rid of it. My sister had to adopt some guinea pigs, because somebody left them in a shopping cart (in the Las Vegas heat), with a note that said, "Please take me home, we make good pets." So her kids are so happy to have their first pet.

I'm definitely in Somebody #2's camp. (well before he became a traitor-cat-snuggler-upper)

P.S. Somebody #2, you'd better watch out before Somebody #1 and 2 add birds, geese, chickens, pigs, and/or other various little friends to your ever growing menagerie!!!
