Lizzie Bennet Has Come to Our House to Stay

For months, I have been visiting animal shelters looking for a kitten. I was having a hard time finding the right one. A few turned my head and tried to steal my heart but sadly, they just weren’t the one. My family started hinting that I was being too picky because they thought I was trying to replace the cat I lost. Truthfully, I might have been a little picky but I knew the right kitten was out there for us just waiting to be adopted.

And she was! Lizzie Bennet has come to our house to stay. We brought her home last weekend. She is close to 4 months old with a loud purr, a sweet disposition, and wicked little claws.

The Bombshell of the Year!

Hello!

It’s Catie today. And I’m here to break the news…

About the end of October, my husband and I, and therefore my parents, took in a sweet orange and white, little, long-haired tabby that wandered up to our house. She was so loving and playful that we all immediately fell in love. Well…all of us but Daddy, but he came around pretty quick, I think. We spent weeks laboring over names and we finally settled on a perfectly sweet name, Sydney.

Yesterday as she turned 6 months old, we took our baby kitten in to get fixed…

An hour later, my husband receives a phone call.  I was out shopping at the time so he gives me a call and it goes something like this…

Devin: “You are not gonna believe this babe, but Sydney has already been fixed.”

Me: “What??? That’s Crazy. I wonder whose baby she was? We asked around, but no one claimed her!”

Then, because the connection was kinda bad, we had to hang up. Later, when I get home, Devin and I exchanged the usual Howdy do’s, and then he said…

Devin: “Baby, there’s more about Sydney…”

I thought, Oh Gracious! Did the vet want to keep her because I unknowingly had somebody’s baby for the last 2 months? I swear, she just walked up on our porch just starving as can be!

He says, “Sydney’s a little Dude!”

Yep.

That happened.

So there you go, the Bombshell News of the Year, my little baby girl, is a Boy!

Welcome to the fam/crazy farm kitty!

Until next time,

Catie
