Welcome, Lilly

I have a new family member to introduce today. Say hello to Lilly. She is a rescue kitty from the Brevard Animal Shelter. We have been discussing purchasing a kitten for awhile now, and I am smitten with this little one. She is 8 weeks old and loves to snuggle, meow, and play with her mice. 

Rocket is having a hard time adjusting to this intrusion, but he is coming around. She is not afraid of him at all, but he is acting like an only child who just welcomed a sibling into the mix. For now we keep them separated except for supervised visits... until Lilly gets a little bit older (and bigger).

The boys are in love with her, especially Evan. He took a 2.5 hour nap with her on Thursday, which is totally out of character for him. They snuggled up and fell fast asleep. Lilly does have a kitty cold and is on her way to the shelter right now for a check up and some medication. Technically we are fostering her until she is fixed on the 16th, then we will officially adopt her.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. We were lucky enough to have one of Mark's college friends, Dion, fly in for a visit & another family invited us over for a BBQ and fireworks. After the kids went to sleep we all learned out to play Craps! Add a couple of strawberry daiquiris and chicken kabobs and it was a wonderful day.

Have a great weekend!
