Kit Kat III Arrives

Our family was not feeling diverse enough so we decided to add a little siamese to our life.  After a visit this summer to see my grandfather and aunt my kids fell in love with grandpa’s cat – Kit Kat II.  They talked about Kit Kat for weeks.  So since we can never add a dog to our life because that would just be to much insanity, plus we tried that already and family would most likely kill us, we/I thought a kitty was just what we needed. 

So thinking back to my childhood and remembering all the great cats my grandma always had with her siamese I really wanted to get that breed for our family too.  They can have a bad rep but I have never encountered this so I found a siamese litter and on Friday night I took the boys to pick out their new baby.  We already have two cats that pretty much just tolerate the kids because they were here first and never fully accepted being carried around by the neck or having their tails pulled.  So I am hoping by getting a kitten they will have a cat in the house that likes them, only time will tell. 

So I introduce Kit Kat III to you all and will have more photos soon.  He is adorable, fiesty, runs a lot currently sitting on my laptop keyboard, is getting used to our cats but not vice versa yet, uses the litter box (yipee!), and the kids think he is the best thing since string cheese.  Who needs a dog?  🙂

Eat Locally

My buddy Big Binder is taking the Eat Local challenge in Grand Rapids and I solute her.  I love to support local businesses and that would include restraunts and produce made right in our own backyard.  I think that is why I love Horrocks because they seem to carry a lot of locally made produce and products.  I have not taken the full blown challenge but I can rightly say that I have bought local meat in the last week, locally produced milk, eaten tomatoes from my own garden, eaten onions from a farm share crop, bought my first batch of Honey Crisp apples, bought from Frito’s, and recycled/sold lots of junk at the Grand Rapids Press Garage Sale today!  So I am doing my part bit by bit to support the local economy and recycle too.  Click here on Big Binder’s Toot Toot blog for great local products that she got donated as prizes for you to win just for leaving her a comment.
