Hello Kitty Toddler Birthday

Since Lil’ Miss K loves kitties and doesn’t watch cartoons, I chose Hello Kitty for her birthday theme. We kept it pretty simple this year with immediate family, simple decorations, and an easy (but cute!) cake. Her favorite gift was a baby stroller to push her babies in, but my favorite was her new Strider bike!

Photo of the Day: Christmas Kitty

This is the first time our cat Esme has made the blog in quite awhile. After taking some photos of Baby K with Christmas lights and putting her down for a nap, I returned to the living room to find Esme snuggled up next to the lights. Silly kitty! (Take Two of Baby K and Christmas lights is scheduled for the near future.)

Photo of the Day: Crazy Cat

After spending way too much money in vet bills, I think we’ve officially adopted the black cat we rescued a couple of months ago. It just occurred to me that I’d only taken one picture of him. After trying for quite a while yesterday, I realize why. He doesn’t sit still for one. single. second. He’s the most affectionate cat you’ll ever meet, but he still doesn’t get along great with our other cat. He chases her in what seems to be an assertion of dominance. Any tips out there?

Photo of the Day: Back To…

Unlike the majority of my Facebook friends, I don’t have any back to school photos to share with you. (Unless you’d like to see the bulletin boards in my husband’s classroom.) So I pulled out this photo from my two-year-old archives of our pretty cat, Esme. She looks a little older and a little heavier now, but she’s still just as mischievous.

Photo of the Day: Lost Kitty

I decided to continue with the cat trend today. Two nights ago we found a cat outside our local community center. Now, I wouldn’t normally bring home a stray cat. But this guy came right up to me and let me pet him, he rubbed up against me, and he followed me all the way to the car. He was declawed and looked like he belonged to someone, but he had no collar, and the closest houses were across a busy intersection. So we (this was a mutual decision between my husband and I) decided to bring him home. He’s been living in our garage for two days, but I can tell by his constant meowing that he’s ready to come inside. If the owner doesn’t respond to our fliers quickly, we may just have a second kitty!

Here are Tuesday and Wednesday’s cat photos, if you missed them.
