From A Kitten to a Cat - And Tight Spaces

Hello everyone....
first let start by saying that I am 
so glad all of  you love my furbabes.
Thank you.

This is Lily just a few days 
after coming to live as Dakota's
pet kitten. 

She came right in and made herself at 
home. She was 12 weeks when I got

Today, April 4th, Lily turns one!

I never thought in a million
years I would get a cat. 
I was 57 yrs old.
I never thought in a million
years that Dakota would allow
another pet in his home.
Dakota was 10.

Here are a few pics along the
way with the funny stuff she
has done and the tight places
she loves to get.

Seriously what is it about cats wanting
to get in 

Her and Dakota's water bowl on the 
deck....empty of course.

a flipped over canvas painting.

A skillet.

A pot.

A laundry basket.

Or two.

 A sink.

Or a tub.

Or back to another sink.

Or even her play tunnel.

A box I am about to wrap
at Christmas.

Or an empty box awaiting
a gift.

haha.....or a not so big
shoe box just sitting around
(with Cory in Calif. and me in 
TN. I hold onto boxes for shipping).

Well, if you can't find a box 
lets just do a bag.

And if mom picks up all th e
plastic bags...
a canvas one will do.

Then there are the cool
boxes that mom cuts windows and
doors in so I can play and hide
from Dakota.

And of course, I have to insist on helping mom
with the dishes.

or the washing or drying of the
laundry.... (could not locate pics).

What is it about those places, some
tight, some not, some cold, some not, some
crinkle but yet others don't. 

What is it about a birthday girl 
that loves a empty box to play

She is not my furry little kitten 
anymore, she has become a cat
right before my eyes.

In the pic below Lily is trying out
her new perch granny got her.
She was 14 weeks.

Now look how she feels that 
space out!

She used to love to lay in my arms...
now I just have to grab her and 
love on her when I want too.

I took a chance on a kitten, one that
came over to the side of the cage where
I stood....one that picked me for her mom. 
I took a chance bringing her into my home
with a spoiled self centered dog that
played well with his granny's dogs....
but he did not like sharing his mom.
I took a chance in getting him his own
pet, and a kitten that was 10 yrs younger
than him....
and it has been the most amazing 

There are days they don't play, but there
are those days that she starts it and 
so many more where he starts it!

They wrestle together, they sleep together,
they love each other more
than I could ever have hoped for. 
There really was not an adjusting
period with him and her, he loved
her from the start and she knew she
was the queen from the start!

They make my heart so happy, they 
make laugh everyday, they
bring me joy

thanks for stopping in and 
checking on the babes.
