Olivia Update

I mentioned a while back that we adopted a new kitty, who was a stray in our neighborhood.  We named her Olivia and it was a bit rough going at first with our other two cats Gus and Grace.  They weren't very thrilled to have a newcomer in their midst, especially a kitten kind of newcomer who would not leave them alone.  But things have gotten calmer now, and they are all getting along. Mostly.  :) 

Olivia went in for her spay surgery last week and when I picked her up, I was given the instructions that she should take it easy for a few days.  Ok.  But exactly HOW you make a kitten take it easy wasn't specified.  I think because it is virtually impossible.  We did our best, but from the second she got out of the carrier when I got her home she went full speed ahead.  She has a little cushioned cube-y thing to sleep and recuperate in, but she just treated it like it was a huge catnip toy and as you can see from the pictures below, she jumped on it, sat on it, squished it, chewed on it and attacked it.  She did everything BUT sleep in it.  Goofy Cat!  :)

My nephew, Baby Eli just loves her and tries to follow her all over the house.  I caught a picture of them last week looking out the window together.  :)  I imagine they will be good friends as they grow up together.  :)

Eli is growing so fast. The picture of him with Olivia is so cute. Would be great blown up framed in black and white. :-)BTW I love your Kindle cover too. Glad you got such a nice gift from Eli. Olivia will be your sprite cat I think. LOL she is full of fire.

How do they really expect you to keep a kitten under control? That picture of her and Eli together is absolutely adorable! So so so so cute! A friend adopted a persian I rescued and now she is going to introduce another rescue kitty. I hope they get along. wishing you a wonderful week. Tammy
