Meet the newest member of our family.........

This is Jordyn , um Jordan the 7 week old cat. She He came into our home last Sunday after answering an add in the paper. Ms. Katharine had been begging for a cat since Claira was killed many moths ago. She not only wanted a kitten, but she wanted one to be hers. So after months of begging, we relented. We answered and add in the paper for free kittens. I took her down so she could pick out which one she wanted. The poor thing was covered in fleas and had a bloated belly. On Tuesday I did lots calling around to see who had the best prices on medicines and vaccines and such. The place where I had taken Claira too wanted twice as much as two others in town. One place only had afternoon appts and that just doesn't work around here. The other place that was equally as "cheap" (*cough*) is where we have gone for years...but sometimes you have to wait FOREVER for an appt. Even though we are waiting until next Tuesday (which is not bad) they went ahead and let us bring her him in to be weighed and pick up some wormer. This is where we found out that our "she cat" was now a "he cat." She now has a kitten to call her very own. Part of her chores every morning is now to make sure he is fed, watered and litter box cleaned. She also has to pay me $1 every time we buy cat food (when you only get $8 spending money every month $1 is a pretty big chunk!) and every time we need to take the cat to the vet for shots or whatever she owes Kyle a minimum of 3 hours work time in the garage...so this is not coming "free" to her. She has yet to complain (and probably wont as it is not her personality) and has already "paid" for her 1st visit by working 3 hours this week.

Wow she looks so cute holding her new baby. My little ones would love to be able to have a pet, but, they are still too young and I am not ready for more work. Maybe someday.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog the other day. Your girls are beautiful and you seem to be doing a great job with them. I love how well you do their hairs. You are good. Our family is in the beginning stages of praying about a adoption. We were not really aware that Haiti was a good option.
