A New GrandKitty!

Yes, you read that right.  I have a new grandkitty.  I do not have grandkids yet and really don't expect any soon but I do have furbabies that I call my grandkids.  My oldest son has 2 dogs, 1 kitty and a lizard (which I really would rather not like to think about).  Unfortunately I don't think I have any pictures of them yet but I can show off Sherrie's new baby.  She has wanted either a kitty or a puppy since she left home last August.  After talking about it, she decided that a kitty would be easier for her to take care of.  So off she went then her roommate/landlord put up so many obstacles about getting an animal that Sherrie decided to move into a more pet friendly home.  So yesterday we went with her when she picked out her new kitty.  Now I didn't realize this before, but a lot of rescue organizations will not adopt out single kitties.  They want you to take a pair of them.  Well, Sherrie could only have one so she was getting pretty discouraged.  But after visiting three different stores and talking to the gentleman who was in charge of this kitty, he agreed to let her adopt only one.  Actually it's not final yet.  She's fostering to adopt to see if the new kitty gets along with her new roommates/landlords' cat and dog.  So if all goes well, at the end of two weeks, she'll be a proud kitty mama.  The kitty's name currently is Bandit (although that may change) and is a Maine Coon mix.  He's so cute and playful and his favorite thing to do is curl up on Sherrie's lap.  She originally wanted a calico or a tuxedo breed but fell in love with this one's personality.  I told her it just proves that God always has our best interests at heart and what we want may not be what He has planned for us.  Even kitties!

Cute kitty! I've been debating getting one. My parents have six babies they need to rehome.

He is adorable, looks kinda like my Zeus! I hope it all works out for her. Otherwise instead of a rescue she can peruse the papers, etc for "free to good home" kitties. I must admit that cats seem to do better if you have 2 but I would never get litter mates I like having about 5 yrs or so between cats.

This made me laugh because my in-laws talk about their granddog and grandcats all the time. It looks like a cute cat, hope your DD has fun with it.
