rules

introductions being made
All rules are meant to be broken...even self-imposed rules. When we moved to Nova Scotia, we had four animals (3 dogs, 1 cat). Over the four years we have been here, we lost 2 to old age and one with an unfortunate incident with a hunter. Last year at this time, we had only one dog and life was very peaceful. Then came our Wheaten Terrier pup Riley, who helped me through the after affects of radiation treatments and kept me focused on a brighter future. My rule: we won't have more than 2 animals in the house ever again.
Ha, joke is on me. Our 17 year old cat Phantom died almost two years ago. I decided it was time for another cat in the household. And...just ask John...once I decide something, it becomes a mission.
A few visits were made to our local animal shelter (S.H.A.I.D.) in December. A little waffling from me....
rule: cats must sit on people with allergies
...and this little girl came home with us on December 27th.
settling in nicely
Let me introduce you to the newest member of our funny farm....Myrtle.

What a beautiful little girl she is - such a sweet face. Look at her crooked eyebrows - how cute is that! I'm planning on having a cat before the year is out - in the meantime I have regular visits with my daughter's three.

So sweet! I've been missing our kitty for the past year. However, because of students with allergies and losing our last 2 kitties to kidney problems, I can't do it yet. Still, some day ..............

What a precious little girl Myrtle is!

Welcome Myrtle! She's a beauty.

When our two senior cats died two years ago, I said.. that's it, no more cats in the house. We still have three dogs. But lately, I'm finding... I miss having a cat in the house. Husband, not so much. He says flat out NO. *sigh*

She's beautiful, Sara :) There's nothing like a kitten - hope Mulligan and Riley are being good older siblings!

And isn't it always the way - cats love those with allergies or those who are just not 'cat people'.

Welcome, Myrtle!!

Myrtle is a perfect name for her. She and Martin would make a great pair!! Congratulations on the new addition. Now what you need is a donkey to keep away coyotes......

Oh, Sara...I've said so many things similar. Never again. No way and I ponder my thoughts a few years later, to find it happening all over again with a joyful heart.

I love her name...so cute. Pretty little kitty, too.

Yay!!
