Olive...


I mentioned yesterday that we have a new four-legged addition to our little family. Several months ago I had left work late and was walking to my car with a friend when we spotted a group from our local Master Gardener program sort of huddled around something in the courthouse square, one of the many sites in Owego that the Master Gardeners maintain. Another friend is part of that program and, while working in the flower beds, she had come across a tiny, frightened stray. As soon as my friend said "stray kitten", I said "no way." The kitten's face and paws were covered in pollen and she was absolutely filthy. All it took was one look at this flea-covered little thing...


and I packed her up and brought her home. Kicky named her Olive. As you can see, she's perfectly content sleeping her days away on our window seat. Who knew I'd be someone who brought home stray kittens?!

Oohh, she's lovely.
Does she get along with your dog?

My boyfriend has so far said no to a second cat, so I live in hope of finding a kitten in need of help that he can't possibly say no to! Olive is adorable and I love her name!

We ended up with a second cat when my husband sent me a photo of a stray kitten the other firefighters had been feeding at work. I promptly told him to catch her, thinking at her age (10-12 weeks) that she would be mostly feral and I would just get her spayed and vaccinated and let her live in the backyard. Not a chance! It took her two days to leave the cat carrier, and then she decided she wanted to be a house cat, much to my resident kitty's dismay. I do adore her. The ones that find you are always the best ones.

Oh my, what a sweet baby! Look at her paw up next to her face...too cute for words. No wonder you couldn't resist her. She needed you. :)

So cute - just wondering if you had to do anything in particular to introduce the dog and cat - we've recently got a kitten and now have a new puppy as well...! Would love to hear any tips =-)
