Introducing Squirrel...

Many of you saw this on Instagram a couple weeks ago, but for those who missed it...

We have a new kitten and her name is Squirrel!
Let me explain...


We used to have two cats, but sadly had to put one down shortly after Liam was born.  So we've been a two cat household before.   Numerous times we have talked about getting another, but we never found one that just had to be ours!  So this whole thing wasn't completely spontaneous, even though we weren't necessary out to get a new kitten on this particular day.  Really I just wanted some kombucha.  And right next to where I get my kombucha is a "kitty store" (animal shelter).  So I was able to get Conor & Liam on board with a kombucha stop with the promise of playing with kitties.  Well, we fell in love!  One particular kitten was so sweet & snuggly, not to mention beautiful.  She came home with us that day!


Part of me wanted a boy cat so we could name him Lancelot (our other cat Charlie's official name is Sir Charles), but this feminine beauty won out over many others!   Naming her was a tad tricky and took quite some time.  We tested out a few options, but Squirrel is what stuck.  As I've mentioned before, Liam is pretty into squirrels right now.  And it may just be the cutest word to come out of his mouth.  Plus, our new kitten was a just a bit squirelly.  So yes, we have a new kitten named Squirrel and we love her!


She puts up with a lot, but still loves everyone.  
Liam wants to carry her everywhere, & Finn only wants to grab her tail.
And I'm just pretty pleased to have another girl in the house!

  4. She is precious!!! I'm so glad she's so calm and lovable! That's why we love Fluffy so much, she's so tolerant of Sophie falling all over her and half squishing her. It's so nice for children to have a pet tor grow up with.

  7. She is SO cute! Mason loves my mother in laws cat and that poor sweet cat puts up with so much. As many times as I say "gentle", poor Mason doesn't quite understand what the word means yet. We've thought about getting a cat before, especially since I think a pet would be good for him.

  12. So fun! I am not a cat person...and all the cats of the world are probably thanking God because if we had a cat, it would be so incredibly terrorized by my children. Your boys seem like they would be good with pets though and it is so good for kids to grow up around them.

  16. I must have missed that post! Loving the newest member of your family - what a sweetie! We have a cat too (Aslan), but with both Caleb and Ellie (our Doberman) running around, poor Aslan spends much of his time in hiding:( He does come out to cuddle with me every night and sleeps in our bed, so he does get some good snuggles in! I'm sure Squirrel will get plenty of loving too!

  17. This is just the sweetest! There is something about baby animals and babies that melts my heart! We have two cats (and a dog) but they're older and don't really appreciate the newest members of our family. ha!
