Kitten Crazy

OMG... I'm as surprised as anyone else.

Yesterday, one of the guys on my team IMs me with a link to a picture of a cat that he is adopting. It's an adorable orange tabby. I mean - seriously - how cute? I was surprised because he already has 3 cats. But, his friend had rescued a stray cat and found out it was pregnant and they just simply can't keep the kittens.

Anyway, I was looking through the pictures and saw this one and said, I want her. I didn't actually mean it, I was just making IM conversation. I have two cats. One is old and the other is still quite young and a bit loco. He IMs me back and says that he talked to the lady who had the cats and the cat was mine. What? No, no, no no.. I just thought she was really cute.

So, EVERYONE on my team starts calling me a kitten murderer (because she was going to be put in a kill-shelter since all the no-kill shelters are full, which I still don't know if I believe or not.) And then, I start really liking this kitty. And I looked at her picture about 193534254 times yesterday and today. She is all white with a calico head and I thought a calico tail. But, it ends up the tail is half tabby and half black - it's so awesome.

I didn't have the courage to talk to hubby about it - because I knew he would say no. But, then the harrassment started when I came into work again today. Then, another member of my team said she might want the kitty and that she would make her an outdoor kitty and I KNEW I had to have her. I actually couldn't bear the thought of her being with anyone else. And I decided that I really wanted her. Really alot. So, I emailed hubby and he didn't say no. What? I was flabbergasted! He didn't say no.

So, bing bang boom - we're going to get another cat. We pick her up on Saturday evening. She will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Here is the kitty mama blog. Right now, the name Badger is my favorite name - but we really need to get a feel for her personality before giving her a name.

Here are a few pictures taken by her current owners that were just posted today of her (I can't wait to meet this little kitty in person):

OMG! Is the tail not the cutest thing you've ever seen?

So, another kitten. I love cats. Absolutely love them. TEEHEE!

Oh what an absolutely sweet kitten!!! Just don't forget that you may have to rescue the occasional bird (like I did the other day!). But then again, you'll have lots of nice cuddles!

Oh what an adorable kitten! I keep wanting to get a kitten and Mike says that he "might" forget to close the front door. Ah, rude!! You will have to post more pics once she arrives at her new home!

I LOVE The name Badger. She is absolutely adorable.

Can I tell you how much I love the idea that your family discovered your other blog, so this is where you expand and vent on your other posts? That's just a really brilliant idea.

Ok your kitty is officially adorable. I'm horribly allergic to cats and she makes me want one!
