the newest of babies (what, you're surprised?)

this is riley, the newest addition to the keith/vanzant household. he's an eight month old hyperactive sweetie pie that has captured our hearts. he attacks everyone, including murphie! finally, pierre has someone to play with. although with riley around, we have started to notice that pierre's not the young kitten he used to be.

we've had riley less than two weeks and it already seems we've always had him. he fits in perfectly with all the others. the kitty is still a grumpy old man who doesn't really get along with anyone but fred, but we won't fault him for being old and set in his ways. its very odd sometimes to see a light colored cat sauntering past us...or in most cases, pouncing!

my mom had been wanting another cat since her baby charlie had died a little over a year ago. we were a little concerned with getting another one since we already had so many. but one day justin's mom came over and asked if we knew anyone that wanted another cat. we looked at each other and sighed. of course we did. the only problem we now face is the possible problem of parting with him when the time comes.

these are cruddy pictures from my cell phone in dimly lit quarters. i promise better ones to come! (oddly enough, these show a side of riley seldom seen...)

How come when Justins mom offers you a new "baby" you take it, but when I offer you one of mine, you refuse?

Yes, the love of cats is a bittersweet curse isn't it?

Lista said...
