Meet Our new Kitty!

Meet Marlin, the newest member of our household:

Marlin 1

Isn’t she cute? I’ve been taking all kinds of pictures of her…under table

She tried to eat off our plates while we watched the Superbowl last night. She’s very friendly, except with our other cat, Casey. They’re gradually getting used to each other, but Marlin likes her space, so, there are no pictures of them together yet. She loves to cuddle though, so I’ve got plenty of pictures of that!

I’ve been taking pictures mainly as an excuse to play with my new camera, a Nikon CoolPix L610. It’s awesome. I’ll probably have to dedicate an entire post to all the things it can do.

Anyhow, back to the cat. We had to search what seemed like a million places before we found her, but I think she was well worth the wait. I mean, how can you resist this kitty charm?

I also couldn’t resist using BeFunky photo editor to make things even more exciting.

Well, that’s all folks; have a great week!

Sad Day

I think I have mentioned that our one cat gets blood clots… perhaps not. Anyway, every time she gets one, we’re not sure how much longer she’s going to make it. Last week was the last time. She got bad enough that we took her in to be put down.

We will miss her.

Cats

Thought I’d do an easy post today; pictures!

This is Gracey, our second cat.

Her eyes aren’t really different colors, it just looks that way. Neither of the cats were wanting to cooperate for pictures today; they wouldn’t stand still.

She likes to drink water out of a little heart-shaped dish on the bathroom counter. It’s like a treat or something to her, because all you have to say is, “Gracey, you want water?” and she’ll jump up there. She also has separation anxiety, and will wander the upstairs hallway meowing. She belongs to my sister Natalie, so that’s who she’s looking for. Sometimes she becomes convinced that Natalie is in my room and so will sit in front of my door and cry REALLY LOUD. Which is really distracting when you’re trying to do school!

Anyway, here’s the other one, Casey.

“The Fluffy Squeaker.” When she was a kitten she was mute. Now she squeaks. And no, we didn’t mean for their names to rhyme. We had Casey first, then Gracey came along with her name pre-installed.

As I mentioned before, they wouldn’t stand still. But at least in this picture you get a nice view of her pretty coat!
