Here Kitty Kitty...

So, we all know the story, right? We got Bandit from my sister-in-law's sister a couple of months after Momma died. Then, sometime in I think it was Sept, Lexy showed up literally on our doorstep (well, in the yard, but you know what I mean). She was tiny, crying VERY loudly, and appeared to be no older than 6 weeks old. We couldn't just leave her there, so we brought her in until we could find her a home. Then we fell in love with her. (doesn't that ALWAYS happen to us?) Fast forward a few months, and she goes into heat MUCH QUICKER than we expected. We were planning to have both her and Bandit fixed with our income tax return. We were HOPING we'd avoided getting her pregnant by booting Bandit outside for the time being. We were wrong. Now we're looking to be about a week away from having a house full of kittens, AGAIN. OH JOY! Can you hear the enthusiasm in my voice?

So my sweet baby is gonna be a mommy soon. Hit me up for a kitten in about 2 months, ok? I had let Bandit back in during this cold weather, and after we were certain she was indeed pregnant, but he's wanting to play the in and out game, and I"m not doing it, so he's now an outside cat, keeping Garfield company. (Garfield was booted to the outside for the same reason, wanted to come in/out like crazy, bringing fleas with him.

But, I do love my "Lexy Lou". She's grown on me A LOT since she showed up. As much as Momma disliked cats, I can't help but think she told her during her poor time as a lonely, needy baby "Hey, go over here to my daughters house. She's a sucker and will take you in and love you". Thanks, Momma :) I love you too!

I am a Christian wife and homeschooling mom of two precious boys. I enjoy photography and spending time with my family, along with any other hobby I can manage to dig my nails into. I'm married to PJ, God's precious gift to me ;) I'm honest, passionate, and find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with my Creator each and every day that passes. I was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic at the age of 10. I chose not to care about my health then, and am paying the price now with multiple complications including kidney damage and neuropathy. I currently reside in Florida, where God led my family in February of 2011, but my heart is, and will forever be, in Alabama.
