Day 69: We Brake for Kitties Around Here

I was all cozy in my office, set to write this post before bedtime. The family was hauling the recycling and trash cans down the driveway, and the dogs were happily assisting. Then there was some commotion, and I came into the living room to find my darling daughter cradling an equally darling kitty in her arms.

We have been kitty-less for a few years, now. But it seems we've been adopted. So there was much oooohing and aaahing all evening, and even a quick trip to the mothership by certain members of the family to pick up kitten food, litter, etc.

Here it is, ready for its star turn...It's young, and we're pretty sure it's a female:

Guess we're off to the vet today!

Sunday's Church Ensemble:

Norma Kamali sweater: $20; Norma Kamali cords: $15; No Boundaries belt: $7; To the Max blouse: $3 (clearance); Earrings: $12; Earth Spirit shoes: $30 (wish I could find some more cute, black leather shoes or mules w/ a heel.  Total: $87

I'm quite happy with this outfit--except for the fact that it looks like I'm sporting jelly rolls of fat down my front. That's the problem with vertical stripes when you're not shaped like a freaking pencil! But I do love the cords--wish they came in other colors. Adore the fine wale and the way they fit. Go, Norma! (I have forgiven you for the coat....)

Got your turkey shopping done, yet? Have fun!


  1. Rain (my cat) congratulates you on your recent adoption. She swears that union members, i.e. strays like her, adopt only the finest families. So what's your little beauty's name?

  2. Aw! The new kitten is adorable! I hope the vet visit goes well. How do the dogs like her?

  3. So sweet! She's very pretty. I hope she doesn't become a doggie snack... Are they treating her okay?

  4. Thanks for all the congrats, my dears! She's adorable and apparently very careful about her choice of families, indeed. The dogs are being respectful enough. She's very sleepy after her spa and shots appointment today.

    Hi, Rain!
