New Family Member

Well, it looks like we might have a new addition to our family. We had a couple of stray kittens show up in the yard last night. They were hungry. One of them was very affectionate and I gave it some good kitty lovies. This morning there was only one outside. It was very happy to see me when I emerged from the house on my way to work. I made my way back into the house to find something for him to nibble on. We have no pets, so I grabbed a can of tuna and gave him some fresh tuna and warm milk. When I left him he was purring very loudly. I stopped on my way home from work and grabbed a couple of cans of cat food just in case he was still here when I got home this afternoon. He was sitting in the bushes in front of the house when I got out. So, I guess we've got a new kitty. Shelby and Tyler are both SO excited. Shelby wanted to name the kitten JJ. I don't know why or where she came up with that name. But, it's already stuck. I think that it's a male. But, it's really hard for me to tell because he is still so young. I think that someone just dumped them off. I would be willing to bet there were more than two. It's so sad isn't it?!

Aww, that's sweet that he/she adopted you guys! I JJ is a very cute name for a kitty, whether a boy or girl. Congrats on the new furry family member! :)
