I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

uno más, uno más!!

I had mentioned in a post in December that one of Mark's Christmas gifts to me was a card telling me that I had his 'blessing' (the word permission just irks me) to get another cat, and he gave me a blank check to cover whatever adoption fee and necessities I'd have to pay for. Well...Merry Christmas! Meet Gato...
Gato just turned 4 months old. I adopted him from PetSmart this weekend where I met his foster mom too. She has had him since he was born (his mom was in her care too) so he's been loved since day one. He's such a sweet kitten, very people friendly. After one day, he's holding his own with our 3 big dogs and my other 2 cats. He also cuddles and gives me kisses!
His name was Heath when I got him, but I'm not crazy about that name and I know Stacy D would give me a hard time about it too, so we threw around some names and we all agreed on Gato (means cat in spanish). He's got an exclamation mark on his nose, a straight line down his nose with a dot at the end. He's soooo cute! I love him already...we all do.

Soooo....to my hubby:
Thanks baby, thank you for my Christmas present, I love you very much!!

Here are a couple of other pictures, one of Gato and one of my other two cats, Trouble and Bob Bob:

Yes, Bob Bob and Gato resemble one another, except that Bob Bob is a long hair Tuxedo and a female. :)

Congrats on your new addition!! Cats can be so sweet! I had 2 foul tempered psycho cats dumped on my by my mom. One has vanished, so now I only have one left to deal with. Seriously, they BITE! I never had a cat with such a mean spirit before. I'm glad your new Gato is a sweetie. Enjoy!! :o)

Sorry. Was allergic to this post! I do have to admit that the black and white cat is just adorable! Looks like a penguin dressed up in a cat suit.

Okay, I need my meds. I know. I know. Back to the psyche ward!

All I can say is Mark must love you to death because it is quite obvious that the animals are running the kennel (I think you like it that way). Seriously don't you every once in awhile feel just a little out numbered? Are you on the multi animal discount program at Petsmart?
Which is more, your human food bill or you pet food bill every month?
Toilet paper or kitty litter, which costs more?
I know what your going to say it doesn't matter! These animals bring so much love and happiness to us that you can't put a price on that.
I too like Mark know how happy your pets make you and your family.
Gato is pretty cute!I just couldn't resist giving you a hard time.
Tell Mark I am praying for his Mom. She overcame it once maybe this time too.

Yeah, we had 2 cats, our babies, and they both passed away *I'll blog about that later*, but as soon as we "Krbied" the entire house my leakey eye *again, later* quit leaking. It really does suck too, 'cause Hubby DID NOT like cats when I met him, and I turned him into a cat lover. Now we can't have them. :(
