Before Christmas we asked the college girl what she wanted for Christmas. She tentatively replied "a kitten?" HUH! A kitten? We have three dogs and a guinea pig. You have 2 more dogs and 2 cats at your other house. A kitten? Daddy is allergic. A kitten? Yep, that was all. Who will take care of your kitten while you are at school? Three other children happily volunteered......of course. "No.", said the Daddy. Well........three days before Christmas, in a moment born out of
This is when she realized what she'd just opened and what it meant!
Knowing Lizzie was coming home on Friday, the kids and I made a trip to the shelter to see what we could find. We found Halibut. Not a lovely name, I know. But, there she was, all playful and happy in a little kitty cage with her brother who had already been adopted but not picked up. The children fell in complete love with her and insisted she was the one for Lizzie. I could not bring myself to call her Halibut though, so we shortened it to Hali until Lizzie could get here and give her a proper name. After throwing some things out there, she settled on Piper. She and Piper spent the weekend bonding.
Enjoying an afternoon snooze with Lizzie
By-the-way...Roxy and Lola are terrified of her! All she has to do is hiss and they scatter!
