New Family Member

Hi guys, it's me again.  Since I am the youngest and I also don't get much blog time mom is letting me introduce the newest member of the family.

If you'll remember last week mom talked about a kitten that Little K found in the street on her way to school, you can read about it here. 

Mom was proud of Little K for not asking to keep it.  Little did she know at the time, Little K was secretly hoping the kitty would survive because she wanted to adopted it.  If you haven't read the story, the kitty was too injured and had to be put down.

Rewind 10 weeks, there was a pregnant cat whose owner no longer wanted it and told her neighbor she was going to dump it in the country or throw it in the river.  The neighbor took mercy on the little mother to be and brought her into her home.  The cat had her kittens, safe and sound, and now it's time for those kittens to find homes of their own.

The daughter to this neighbor is a friend and swimming team mate of Little K. Little K told her about the cat she found and her friend told her about the kitties they were finding homes for.  Needless to say once Little K saw pictures of these kittens it was all over, darn  cell phones and there ability to send pictures.

Here's a picture of Little K picking up her new kitten.

It amazing, the colors and markings of this kitten are so much like the one she found in the road.  I happen to like the colors and marking, see the resemblance?

She named him Sammy.  Here is exploring Little K's room.

Maddie and I just knew something was different, we could smell it.  We just couldn't get down stairs.

Finally, we meet the little critter. We could almost be twins don't ya think?  :)

Not sure dad appreciates Sammy...but..

....he sure melts mom's heart.

Welcome Sammy! Jake, I am so proud of Little K, she stopped and tried to help an injured little soul and did the best she could. Please give her a special wag for trying. Every little animal is important. What a sorry (insert bad word here) excuse for a woman who wanted to toss out a pregnant mama cat. Despicable! But enjoy your new friend! xoxoxo

Welcome home Sammy! I love the name Sam. I haven't read the story yet of the other kitten. My dear friend you must be so proud of your sweet compassionate daughter. I agree with Ina about the orignal owner. xo
