Kitty Update

This update is for Sophie (and long overdue!!). :)

A few months back, we got Jake and Ella Kate both a kitten.

A few short weeks later, Dot (EK's cat) disappeared. She was a wonderful kitty so we suspect someone else found out just how wonderful she was! ;) That's the downside of outdoor pets in a subdivision I guess. It's awful hard to keep them at home! Ella Kate didn't get too upset over it so we just considered ourselves lucky to still have one kitten left.

Jake's kitty, Harry, seems to be here for the long haul. He is the BEST cat (they both were!). We were very worried about Harry for a couple of weeks after Dot left because all he did was sit on the front stoop and cry. It was so sad!

But soon the neighbor across the street got a kitten and they became the best of friends! If we don't see Harry in the yard, he is always across the street "visiting" his buddy. Likewise, his friend spends a lot of time visiting us!

Here are the last pictures we have of Dot!



We love this nutty kitty!!

Thank you so much for the update on the cats! I am so sorry for Dot... but so glad Harry is still home!

So you do take after Mom, I was beginning to wonder. My child is a kitty because I'm just not mature or responsible enough to have real children. I hope Harry stays with you as long as God wants her to and Jake and Ella Kate can have some memories like you and I do of Butter, Charcoal, and Junior :P

So you found Dot after the van incident?!?! Only to lose her again. Aww :( Glad Harry is the greatest kitty though - he sure looks at home with you all! We lost 2 of our 3 in our move... Jacob's kitties. Its rough to lose a kitty - but we hope they found good homes like I know Dot did!
