Meet Skittles

Alternate titles for this post: "The Day Our Family Got Even Crazier", "The Cat I Saw In A Vision", "In Which I Discover, I Like Cats After All". 

See I've been kind of wanting a kitten, since, well every time I look at a picture of a kitten. But usually I tell myself no, because litter box. Enough said, am I right? And yet at night after the kids were in bed, I would randomly find myself searching the pets section of Craigslist. And on Saturday I saw this cute one. And I asked Aaron (for the millionth time) if we could get this kitten. He was like, "Fine." And I was like, "REALLY!?" And so I was texting this person, but then I got this feeling that I shouldn't go get the Craigslist kitten. I had the very distinct feeling that a kitten would come to me. So I trusted that feeling, and didn't go get Craigslist kitten. And then you'll never believe what happened next. At church the next day a friend asked if anyone give this kitten she found a home. It was super friendly and cute, but her husband is allergic. And so long story short, we now have a kitten. Named, Skittles. Or Meow Meow. Or Graya. Or Doughnuts. Depends on who you're talking to.
Ugga mugga!

So much cuteness.

They are learning to coexist.

Abigail is pouting because the kitten is on Olivia's lap.

  1. What a sweet kitten! I'm trying to convince myself that I really don't want a desert tortoise. But they hibernate. And now they are free to adopt because there are so many being surrendered. I don't need more complications in my life, but they are so cool!
