Okay, time flies when your having fun and not having fun, although in my case, mostly having fun. I had to stop by and post some new pics of our newest family member. Her name, well, it's a toss up at this point. We cannot decide, so I have been calling her Little Bit. Some of the most recent thoughts were Sugar, Sugarplum, Ivory, Snow, Snowflake, Snowball, Pinkie..... on and on it goes. Hopefully, soon we will make it definitive. But, for now she is Little Bit.
We found her on one of the coldest mornings of the year so far. It has been determined that someone dumped two little kittens out by our building. The all black kitten disappeared. Not sure what happened to him, but this little girl was under a vehicle, yelling with all she had. She was, at the most, 6 weeks old and been without food for 2 days. She finally came to the food that was offered. I had never heard a cat purr and eat at the same time. Of course, we monitored her food intake for 48 hours and then slowly introduced her to our horde. Needless to say, most of my sophisticated grown-ups did not want to be bothered by a rowdy youngster.
But, with minimal events of screaming, everyone is happy now.
Little Bit loves to help out with everything. She loves to watch my fingers move on the key board and watch the mouse run around on the screen. She watches TV with us, too. But, as any baby does, she gets worn out. Good thing is, she sleeps anywhere.
On a sad note, our beloved Max has passed away. He became ill and was gone in half a day. He was an old man, so we knew it was on the horizon, but it's still hard sometimes. Also, my aunt is under going lung cancer treatments. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
I vow to be more regular with posting for all to read this next year. Also, with more craft projects, painting, etc. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
