Our Miss Brooks

It is now after noon........I have got nothing done........I had plans today to sew two aprons........that hasn't happened.

Why, you ask?

Well, this little guy or girl came to our home.

I'm afraid to say this makes four!

I really don't want to be the little old lady you read about that has 95 cats in her house!

I don't!

I don't!

I don't!

I have to say though, they are all fixed so no little ones will be running around, except for this one.

This wasn't a planned event!

Oh, I just got a "flash back" my last one wasn't planned either!

A trip to Crispy Cream and I came home with a kitten!

No wonder I steer clear of that place!

I think I've completely gone over the edge and I wanted you to be the first to know!

I'm a soft touch!

Thank goodness for a sweet husband!

But this is it!!!

I don't care if these sweet little guys are cuddly and cute and full of life...I don't care if they do the silliest things and I love watching them!

This is the last one!

How did this happen you might ask!

Well, it all began last night...

We had just finished my son's "showcase" for his theater group when one of the mother's sprinted, came up to me and ask if I would like a kitten.

Apparently, her neighbor had just given it to her because her dog had just eaten the sister kitten and they needed to find a home for it.

What, do I have a sign over my head that says, "Ask Me!"?

The family that had the kitten at the showcase last night were going on vacation the next morning (for 5 weeks) and were not able to take care of her.

I had seen a picture of her on the mother's phone and...she was small...cute and orange...a few of my favorite things.

We went outside to look at her...I know what you're thinking...1st mistake, right?

Well she was everything I envisioned her to be...small, cute and orange.

Talk about a "chick magnet", I don't usually use that term but let me tell you if a guy wanted to meet girls that's the way to do it.

We had such a large group of young ladies gathered around this kitten each wanting to hold her!

Well, to make a long story short, she came home with us.

Each one of our cats is named after an old time radio show character.

If this one turns out to be a girl her name is Miss Brooks.

Being that orange female cats are very rare.

Her name could change if we find out that she is a he.

Friday, we'll find out when she has her first vet. appointment.

As for the other cats, they are trying to get use to her, it will take time.

As for us...We're In Love with her!

OHHHHhhhhh, Miss Brooks is too cute. If only school wasn't over you could bring her for show 'n tell. Call her Miss Brooks even if she is a guy. Who cares when you're a cat? lol

I should never have read this post - now I want a Miss Brooks for myself! Years ago I had 4 cats (Mr had 2 and I had 2 when we met) and I always thought I was headed in the direction of crazy cat lady! Now we're down to one of the original four and she *loves* being the Queen. :-)

Debbie I am the same way. I'm glad you are keeping her...


June said...

You are hilarious Debbie. I will be the first to stick up for you when they find you and your 95 cats and call you crazy! Not crazy at all, just a sweet soft touch.
Miss Brooks would be impossible to leave behind!
hugs from here...

OMG she is so cute, we used to have an orange kitty, after about 12 years he disappeared. I do have a weakness for orange marmalade kitties, you did good! Florence

Kathy said...

She is adorable!!!

Absolutely adorable! I would have taken her(?) home, too, in a heartbeat! I have 3 myself (all rescued), but what's another lovable fur ball! Enjoy her!

Debbie, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only that people think of when they have a stray cat! You know, these strays have ALWAYS turned out to be the very best cats! I feel they appreciate your love more! What a little cutie! Oh-oh, is that the doorbell, did I hear a meow????
