You could have probably guessed that we've already added a new kitty to our house, right? Well, it's true!
A few weeks ago we adopted a flame-point siamese kitty from a local rescue organization. I had looked online and it said that he was calm, easy-going, neutered and declawed. We'll take him!
We talked to the kids about him and asked them what we should name him. Eli had no recommendations, but Emily wanted to call him "Pretty Girl". We laughed and reminded her that this cat was a boy. She said, "Okay, Pretty Boy!"
Tom's vote was Gus. Tom has a list of crazy awful names that he wanted to name our children, so I gave in and told him he could name this cat. Merging the two names, we introduce our newest family member:Pretty Boy Gus!
He looks petite here, but let me assure you he's not! He's a BIG, BIG boy!!
(Eli, mesmerized by the TV)
He really is a sweet cat. He loves to snuggle with everyone and when you pick him up he literally hugs you around the neck and nuzzles his nose into your neck. He can be a bit frisky at times and his playful nips are quite hard. Also, he wants to eat constantly, which leads to the stinkiest gas you've ever smelled. I've never heard of a cat being so toot-y?? Oy!
Either way, we are enjoying having another pretty boy around here!
