Before Christmas, Eli and I found a little kitten that seemed super hungry, it'd come around our house everyday meowing for food. I'm a sucker for animals - even cats. I'm not usually a fan of cats - weird a crafter who's not a cat lady - I know! haha But I'm just a Mickey gal (my fat baby pup).
Now Eli has been wanting a cat forever! Once in school he had to write what he would do with $100 - he said buy a monster truck, a kitty, and kitty food. Melts your heart right?
Well Brian and I were NOT getting him a kitty haha as cute as Eli is I was not cleaning a litter box. But then this little kitty came into our lives. We only let her outside on our porch for the longest time, but then it got cold (for Florida) so I let her sleep inside. She seemed to like us and she wasn't so bad herself. She cried when she wanted out, I fed her, Brian wasn't a fan and said we took someones cat. But I don't think so, she acted like she'd never been in a house, never been picked up, etc.
So Eli named her Muffin, which I found interesting because when I was little the only kitty I ever had and ever loved was named Muffin (Eli didn't know that). So now Muffin is our cat. She's kinda weird- like all cats haha. She lets us know when she wants to be pet. Oh and Eli opened this little cat door the pervious owners of our house had in, so NO litter box!! It's pretty awesome. She comes and goes as she wants. She sleeps a LOT!
Mickey doesn't really bother her, expect he always wants her food. I had to buy him wet dog food, I only give him a tiny bit of it. I want him to know he's still #1. He tries to play with Muffin but then remembers she has claws haha. He's handling the new addition to the family ok, not great though. He's jealous, but he'll get over it soon enough.
So Muffin is pretty cute, she makes me laugh. She's a bit crazy, but super cute. I got her this scratch box and it came with catnip - that was the best!!! I've never seen anything like it - she went bananas!! So as long as she stays we'll be hers and vice versa. :) She even has her own Flickr set!
