Our Family Grew

There has been a lot of change going on in our household. I hope to post more about those changes soon, but I wanted to start with one that is coming about 2 weeks late!

Kaylee has spent the last few years begging us for a cat. Two weeks ago we finally gave in and Kaylee's dream came true. We knew going into the search for a cat we didn't want a kitten! After we took home a stray (and quickly adopted her out) when Kaylee was one we swore that if we ever got a pet we would opt for one that was out of that adorable, but oh so naughty kitten/puppy stage. We ended up visiting the SPCA and two local pounds before we found our sweet orange and white tabby. He is 2 years old (they think) and is a ball full of energy! Although he was labeled as a stray at the pound we are certain he was someone's pet before he came to us because he knows not to jump on counters and prefers to be in whichever room is the most occupied.

Kaylee spend a long time thinking about names and finally decided she wanted to name him "polka dot" after the markings on his back. The only problem is that Kaylee thinks "polka dot" is said "coca dot" and so he is now affectionately called, "Kokee" (spelling courtesy of Kaylee and her preference of Ks over Cs).

One last random detail. The first time I did may Vest and nebs he totally freaked out and ran to a bedroom to hide. Now two weeks later he is completely used to it and frequently comes over and sits near (or walks on) me while I do my treatments.


  1. Yay! Love that you rescued too!!

    1. Being in the shelter made me want to adopt them all!

  2. Kate would be SO jealous! Mahon and I are both wildly allergic, but she is dyyyying for a cat.

  3. Awww, I wish she could come play and get her cat fix! How are you? I feel like it has been so long!
