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.

I Couldn't Come Home Alone

Okay, I mentioned in my comment section of my last post that I may have a small brain. With that said, on my way out of the vets office after having Itty Bitty put to sleep, I picked this up:

She's 6 weeks old, I don't really have a name yet but I'm leaning towards 'Butchie'. This is a picture of her on the stuffed dog the boys bought me for my birthday...she thinks it's 'mama'.

...and here she's playing with one of the cat toys.

Adorable, huh? She's so tiny, that toy is about a third of the size of my little finger.
I'm still thinking about names, if y'all got any suggestions. She's pretty feisty and brave, which why I thought of Butchie. Can't wait to show the boys when they come home. She's litter trained and been tested for feline leukemia and AID's (yeah, they test cats for it now too), but too young for her shots, which they'll give me for free in 2 weeks.
I know...small brain and all that...but I already love her.

How about Angel, since you know Itty Bitty must have made sure this cat was there to help make it just a little easier to say goodbye to her?

nabeel ~ I am in AWE OF YOU!!! I can't believe you remember that story. Yeah, that was here. A tiny kitten (like this one) that someone had covered in oil and set on fire and then put her in a paper sack in a parking lot. I found her, cleaned her up and she never came to anyone, not even me, till my husband first came over and he jumped into his lap. His name was Rags. You, my friend, have an excellent memory. Thanks so much for letting me know that you remembered that!

3 Carnations ~ I actually thought of Angel, but it's the name of dog I'd taken care of for 3 years next door to me here and they gave her away recently...kinda still too raw.

anne ~ isn't she?? I bet Rickey would love a little play mate like this. :)

hunneb ~ I'd noticed those too! Thanks, I think she's a cutie tooo!!

samurur999 ~ you funny girl...I'm thrilled I made you smile after making you cry! Love you lady.

abi ~ sweetie, her eyes aren't actually blue, I just didn't take the time to set it for red eyes, so they turned out blue in the pic. Sorry, I shoulda fixed that.

ok, what a funny kitten. Does she blink? Here eyes are so wide!

I have a few name suggestions...

Tink: because of her tiny nose. You just want to tap it *tink*
Ducky: Because she is ducked down in every picture.

I'm so sad to read about Itty Bitty. I can totally relate to feeling so sad for the older cats that need homes. ANY animal that needs a home. :(
If people would only spay and nueter and not buy from puppy mills and pet stores...

Also, check out www.catser.com...its the "myspace" of the cat world. You have to sign up your new baby for this. Its a whole new website to OCD on.

These are mine:

amanda ~ thank you! I still kind of like it too....don't know why cause you and I are the only ones who do.

deb ~ girl, can't you behave anywhere??

Ok, I'm playing catch up. I nearly cried when I read about Itty Bitty :*( How sad, and how wonderful of you to do what HAD to be done.
Now, the little new one. I'm in love :) She's adorable. Butchie sounds just right to me.
(P.S. is it me or is Casey getting even MORE handome? Sheesh!)

Oh, and I'm howling at Deb! LOL!
