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!
