    New member of the family

    We went to town yesterday, had mothers day lunch with my SIL. While were eating, this cutie pie kitten showed up at her door. My SIL said she's been around since they moved in about 3 weeks ago. I was stunned when my dh said she should come home with us. We already have 2 cats, a dog, and a guinea pig. He's usually the stickler about no more pets. But, she is so skinny. We felt so bad, clearly looking for food wherever she could find it. So...we took her home. He name is Bella. She hates the dog, but the dog is so sweet, it's just a matter of time before they are best buds. The jury is out on our other 2 cats. lol

    She is so cute. Glad you adopted her. She looks like my cat Dukie, but he is all of 14 lbs. now.

    Yes, her name is Bella. Actually my daughter named her. It took her about 5 seconds to pick a name, after we told her that we would take her home with us.

    dont worry about other cats--they will teach her the pecking order and then everybody will be happy. take it from a pro who has ben adopted by many a stray cat and has had one of those adopted strays bring home a little stray

    Our cat of 20 years looked just like her and he came from a parking lot in Mississippi. He had just went to kitty heaven this past Saturday. At one point this cat weighed 25# and the vet said he would never live very long at that rate! This makes me want to get another.

    Isn't it amazing how cats adopt us ? we have had many strays that have stayed around for a long time before their journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
