Pumpkin has arrived! She is a 4 month old rescue kitten. VC is a cat person and he finally convinced it me it was time to adopt. I read some studies indicating the best time to own kittens is when you are a college student or senior citizen.
Since he will be a college student next year and I am rapidly approaching the arrival of my AARP card, it was time.
She was incredibly shy at the shelter so the officer felt she would be a difficult adoption, but she already seems to be warming up incredibly well to us and our home.
I promise not to inundate you with cute kitty pictures (maybe) - but here are couple (that's VC holding her - look how big he (VC) is!)
He is a little jealous that Pumpkin seems to have taken a liking to me. What can I say, I'm irresistible ;-) so I have to play with her on the sly when he is out so he won't get annoyed lol.
