A Busy Week: Adopting A New Kitty!

This week has been busy with preparing to bring home our new kitty. It has been over nine years since we have had a kitten in the house, but since we have a dog we decided that a kitten was best to adopt. Because a kitten can get used to a dog quicker and our dog would do better with a kitten than a full grown cat.

We went last Saturday to our local animal shelter to look at kittens and after about thirty minutes we had picked one, but we couldn’t bring her home yet. She needed to be spayed first and the soonest appointment at the clinic was Tuesday with a Wednesday pickup so that gave us time to go buy all new kitty stuff and kitten-proof the house. Which is what we spent the next few days doing by moving plants, cleaning, and looking for hazards. We also got Abigail ready for the new kitty by putting out everything and buying her a new food dish. Wednesday morning came and it was time to pick her up at 7:30am and when she got home she was ready to get out and do her thing. Abigail just wants to baby her and they will get along fine as soon as they get completely use to each other. No one is afraid of the other and it’s just learning each other.

So without further ado, I would like to introduce little miss Clarie. Claire is a fourteen-week-old tortie with sass. She has only been home for two days and knows how to get her way. She is fearless and when she sets her mind on something she figures out how to get it even if it means getting a human to do something. Playing with toys, trying to scare Abigail, and climbing as high as possible are her favorite activities.

She does not hold still for long so here are a few photos. If you follow me on Instagram @sassybooklover there are a few videos of her.
