It's All About "Love"

Zoe has been asking for a kitty for awhile now and honestly since Mako, our dog, died over the summer we have all been missing having a pet around the house. So we decided for Zoe's birthday we would get her a little friend. I asked around school to see if anybody knew of a kitten who needed a home and our nurse said her hairdresser had found a kitten and just the night before asked her if she knew anybody who was looking for one. Dylan and I went to visit it a couple weeks ago and fell in love. Since then we've been visiting it almost every day after school as the lady told us she would hold it until Zoe's birthday. It was getting to be a bit much to take time to go there after school and Dyl was having a harder and harder time keeping the secret so we decided to give Zoe an early gift.

Since I took Friday off we picked up the kitty on Thursday night and brought her home. We sneaked her in and went straight upstairs to where her litter box was going to be. After a few minutes we asked Zoe if she would like an early birthday present. Well, hello, of course she did! So she sat on the couch and covered her eyes.



We put the kitty in a basket and sat it next to her.



When she opened her eyes she seemed speechless over the furry thing she saw. She said, "It's a kitty. Do we get to keep it?" When we told her it was all hers, she picked it up slowly and carefully giving it lots of kisses and a great big hug, which I'm sure the kitty loved. Here Zoe is with "Love", her new kitten.



The last few days have been spent yelling at her to put the kitty down playing with the Love and helping her feel at home. I'm personally thinking she is adjusting just fine as she Meow's at us to feed her, jumps on our bed and paws at our face in the mornings, and sleeps in the middle of our bed all stretched out. Oh and did I mention she likes to read blogs?


Yep, she is fitting right in with our family!
