It makes me much happier than I thought it would to introduce you to the newest member of our family.
This is John Henry's new furry best friend, Abner.
John Henry earned the privilege of getting a kitty when he was 100% potty trained. We waited for several months to find the perfect kitty for him.
You see, John Henry didn't want just ANY kitty. He wanted one that matched his much loved, "Kitty." Kitty (or sometimes Baby Kitty) has been his favorite snuggle buddy and bed fellow since John Henry was just a year old. He pulled him from a bin at IKEA, of all places, clung onto him, and never let go. (There are actually four Kitties, as we once lost the original and it was a nightmare for all involved - I didn't let that happen again!)
This little guy has all ready snuggled and swatted his way into our hearts.
He loves to cuddle, sleeps in John Henry's bed with him, and purrs very loudly despite only being a few months old. It doesn't hurt that he came to our house litter box trained, either!
And in a few weeks he will be joined by his feline sister, who is not yet old enough to leave her mama. Link and I are believers that animals are happier when they have a companion of the same species. Two dogs, two boys, three fish, fourteen chickens. . . OK, so things got a little out of control with the chickens, so we are back to just two of each. Noah knew what he was doing!
If you haven't 'liked' us on facebook yet, come over and and see our page. I post 'in process' photos of some of our projects there and you will also find a video of the boys loving on Abner. (Is there anything cuter than a baby kissing a kitten?)
