New Addition

My brother and his family visited us on Thanksgiving weekend and while exploring in the hayloft, my niece and nephew (Allie and Sam) found a little kitten. It was all alone though we’d seen a feral cat around the past few weeks that was probably the mother. It was too cute to ignore – probably around 4 weeks old and just starting to walk on its own – and Will and I decided to bring it into the house and into our animal family. We’ve named her Rusty and she is a delightful little creature to have around the place. There’s something about a kitten that makes you laugh more than you’d think possible: everything is a toy and the house is a great big adventure castle. Cory is really good with her though he does get jealous when we play with her instead of him. He’ll jump into the game and start fetching tiny cat toys: plastic balls, crumpled up paper and even that fun bookmark with a tassel. Tabbi isn’t impressed but puts up with her until she starts getting too crazy; once you get to be over 100 years old you don’t have much patience for wrestling.
