A Little Cotton Ball

I'll share an update with you tomorrow of my Crazy Quilt Cat Pillow.  I've been working on it but have another little distraction going on!

I've mentioned several times that I've been wanting to adopt a little white kitten.  Yesterday, I looked at Animal House Shelter's website (that's where we adopted Wrigley) and lo and behold, they had just brought a little white kitten to the shelter from the foster home.

Now I had liked the name Cupid for a little white kitten but Scott was not at all thrilled with that name.  We had been talking about it for the last few weeks and came up with the name Cotton.  Ironically, when the shelter posted his photo, the description read, "sweet as Cotton Candy and soft as a Cotton Ball"!

Scott and I were kind of blown away by that and immediately hopped in our truck and drove to Huntley.

So we adopted this beautiful little 3 month old baby yesterday:

This is the shelters photo.  I haven't gotten any really good pictures of him yet because he's always in motion!  But here a two that will give you an idea of how little he is:

He looks more like he's 8 weeks old rather than 3 months.  But he's sweet and he's beautiful!

Lucy was not doing well in accepting Wrigley.  She was pounding him every chance she got.  And she was snapping at me which she has never done in the 14 years she's been with me.  Scott and I thought that if Wrigley had another baby to play with, that Lucy would get a break from his high energy level!

There's some growling and hissing going on between Cotton and Wrigley but I don't think it will last long.  They're only 2 months apart in age.

I'll try to get better photos to share but for now, we a new little baby for Wrigley to play with.  For right now, he's curled up on the computer tower, sound asleep!

Cotton and Wrigley will join forces and gang up in Lucy.. then they can divide and scatter and she can't pound them both. A lot of photo opts are in the future!!1

awwwwwww - there's altogether too much cuteness going on at your house! Cotton is a perfect name too - obviously meant to be. Must say I giggled when I saw the 'Kelloggs' on the shirt!!
