A week ago from Saturday, we brought home a new kitten!

We said goodbye to our Allie a year ago in September. Oddly enough I see "phantom" Allie cats here and there throughout the house - I have since she passed on. I've missed her so much and even after we got Bailey, I wanted to add a cat to our family.

Last week Jamie woke up and the first thing he said to me was, "I think we should get a cat." I didn't need a cup of coffee to wake my brain up! I said, "REALLY?" about 7 octaves higher than I usually speak.

We immediately went to and found our kitty through a group called CATsNAP. They rescue cats/kittens from high kill shelters. Willow and her brothers and sisters were rescued from being euthenized!

Willow is super loving and a very easy going cat. I have yet to even hear her hiss or growl! She loves Kian, loves to cuddle and just loves to be loved. And I have a feeling that with a little more time she will become good friends with Bailey. Right now his big head is kinda intimedating. So far she's found places where he can't go to poke his nose in at her.
