New Arrival

Kitten love.
A few days ago one of the cats, a large grey one name Skizitz, went missing.  He was outside while we were putting wood into the basement, but never came inside like he usually does at night.

The missing cat brought up discussions about getting a new cat.  We checked out the website of the local animal shelter, and found a few that looked like they would be good for us.  Yesterday we went for a visit.

A few of the adult cats were friendly and got along well with the kids.  Just as we were about to leave, though, we spotted a dusty grey kitten in one of the cages.  We hadn't planned on getting a kitten, but Truffle, as the shelter was calling him, decided that he should come home with us.

We resisted, and left the shelter with a few photos of possible cat additions to the family.  When we returned home, the kids, my wife, and in-laws talked things over.  The next thing I knew, we were headed back to the shelter to pick up the kitten.

Since his fur color makes him look like he's rolled in a fireplace, we've dubbed him Dusty Cinderfella.  Welcome to the family Dusty!
