Babysitting Kitty



Have you ever agreed to something without completely thinking it through? "SURE, I will watch a little kitten for a week so it can be a surprise for your son...of course, NO PROBLEM!", that was me, two days ago. I had forgotten how crazed my children get when it comes to animals. I have been refreshed overnight....ahhhhhh!!!!! Just kidding.

The morning the kitten arrived, my girls' kitty sonar must have detected an inbound target. Well, that is the only explanation I can come up with for all three of them pouring out of the house in pjs to welcome their furry house guest before she even got out of my friend's car early Saturday morning. I had forgotten all about it and was quite the morning beauty in my husbands PT sweats and bed head hair. The little squealing group ushered my friend and the kitten into the house and that is about all I remember. Now, we have a kitten...for a week ;) You would have thought I brought a new baby home what with all the squeals, ahhhs and ohhhs. Even Ayden is in love with the fuzzy little thing. The little thing is cute and is being spoiled to death. I guess you could say we are breaking it in for the family it will go to on Christmas morning...he he he...they have 5 children to love and smother it with kisses. :)

Did you finally get the kitty to start eating?
By the end of the week, your kids will either have no more desire to own a cat, or you will be making a trip to the animal shelter to bring home one of your own! Now wouldn't that be fun?!

That's very sweet of you to kitty-sit for this Christmas surprise. He looks a little like our Harley.

And I'm sorry to tell you this, but everytime you post pictures of Ayden he has matured a little. Isn't that always sad?

Pam...he/she DID finally start eating, Praise the Lord, I was getting worried! NO WAY are we getting a cat..nope uhhh uhhh ;)

Kristi..I KNOW!! I am so sad he is growing up..especially that pic of him with the kitty. He looks alot older in that pic...I think even more than in person, but that is probably just me ;)

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new header!

Cathy said...

How very brave (and nice) of you!! I'm not sure anything smaller than a Saint Bernard would survive a week with Tyler. He hasn't quite mastered gentleness yet. LOL

I really like the new blog look too! Very cute.

Rebekah said...

I love your new header! I can just hear now the teary begging that will happen when that kitty has to go to its new home...I have a feeling you'll probably get a kitten of your own soon! :-)

Michelle said...

LOL..That is cute

Sis. Julie said...

Awwww!! How fun!! We wouldn't be able to babysit something so adorable for our crying when it left. We would get attached to it even though it wasn't ours. You are a brave one for doing this. I'm sure the kiddies are enjoying it immensely. Have fun with it!! LOL!!

Mishel said...

Aww, the kitty is too cute! And what a good friend you are to do this!

Heather said...

Din, I must admit that I am not really an animal person...but I do prefer cats at the moment because they are so independant ;)Thanks for your comment!

Pam :) Photshop...I LOVE it :)

Mrs Cathy...come back soon!

Liz- I know what you mean girl..Ayden is fascinated with kitty's tail...yikes ;)

Rebekah...I would rather deal with the whining and crying than take on another responsibility...especially one they all fight over!!

Hi Michelle!! Are you all settled in?

Sis Julie-Thanks :) I don't think I'm half as brave as the kitty though!!

Mrs Mishel-I couldn't say no...and the kids are thrilled :)Sort of a win win situation...as long as it all ends well, right?;)
