It's Been Awhile

It has certainly been awhile since my last post. Due to a few little things happening and our new little family member I have been busy.

We lost our beloved Muffin at the end of August last year. We had her for 18 years and she was the sweetest little pet. Petrina was missing her as much as we were and after Christmas we decided to look for a little kitten.

We found a litter of Flame point Siamese for sale and went to see them. The kitten would be ready in two weeks and we picked up Bailey the first week of February. We were told he was 8 weeks old, but our Vet figured he was only 6 weeks. The poor little guy had and cold and was only one pound. We had meds for him and when he visited the vet again in two week he was much better and had gained another pound. Because of this cold his little nose is so sensative, but he will grow out of it. Tomorrow he goes for he second needle and I would think he has gained more weight.

Here are some pictures of our new little friend.

Its so hard to lose a pet, and 18 years? That is a nice long life together for a pet! I hope you will have an equally long time with your new little sweety.

Petrina and Bailey look like the best of friends! :) I just love them both. Look at that contented look on their faces. So sweet. I'm sorry about you losing your beloved pet. It's so difficult. They are a member of the family. But now you have found Bailey. What a joy for all of you!

Welcome back... and welcome Bailey. I had a nice dog named Bailey once, it's a good name. xo

I cannot imagine a one-pound kitten!

Looks like my Keda Bear... we rescued a batch of 5 kittens 2 summers ago ( the momma cat was dead in with the kittens on my parents farm) and well I could not say no to a crying 7 year old, who scooped up all five in her shirt.....so we took them home with us ( a 3 hour drive) and bottle fed them every 2 hours...because they are farm cats we had a black tabby, an orange tabby, a calico, a grey and a flame point marked one! quite the combo =) he was the runt and I took pitty on him, so we kept him!

sorry for the long reply- must be the XL Tim's coffee I had an hour ago=)
