...AND BABY MAKES THREE

Her name is Morgan


Monday brought an unbelievable surprise. A little girl to love.


I had been longing for a kitty for a while, but Jim had professed not to really like cats. He preferred dogs. I have never been keen on the dog issue feeling they were too needy, especially for folks who were seldom home. We agreed to disagree on this issue and have neither pet. But oh how I longed. There was nothing more comforting than the sound of the purr when you held a cat close...that sandpaper little tongue. It had been almost nine years since I had a cat. Not just any cat. One that forgot she WAS a cat. Chloe came to us one Mother's Day weekend many years ago. An orange fluff ball that grew to be about 17lbs. She loved attention and followed me around from room to room. She just loved to be loved.

Well, the 'kitty void' has been filled. Jim knew I had been smitten with a little ball of fluff that was born April 2. She was one of five girls born to a stray taken in by a co-worker. Secretly he arranged to get her when she was old enough to leave Mom and this Monday when I arrived home from work there was Jim, (man who doesn't like cats......) sitting on the couch with a ball of fluff in his lap. A gift for me, the little girl that I had fallen in love with. What joy!!! And guess who looks for the baby as soon as he comes home????

But I love all the neighbor cats and just the other day said "you know, sometimes I want a cat." Hubby about had a stroke! lol Morgan is beyond cute. :)

Congratulations on your new baby girl! What a cutie she is!! This story reminds me of my husband's attitude about getting another dog. I kept wanting a 2nd puppy, and as much as he put his foot down and said "no", guess who now spoils her the most!!?? Go figure!
