Kitty Update

Happy Monday Morning to you all!

Its been a while since I've updated you on our new littlest addition here in our household. Well, to start off with, since my granddaughter Deborah wanted to name the cat, Isabella (from the movie, Twilight) Elizabeth (her middle name) I thought the name Izzy Lizzy would be cute, but then Deborah tells me, they Isabella (from the movie) "Bella" so we started calling the cat, Bella. All this time we were thinking the cat was a girl cat, but because the cat was so young, we really couldn't tell. TILL NOW!! LOL Turns out our little baby kitten, is not a she but a he cat. So, we thought and we thought, what do we name HIM now? We didn't, we decided to stick with Bella. If Bella LaGosse (I hope I spelled that right) can use the name, so can we. So, the cat's name is now, Bella Linguine.

So the first few weeks, of having Bella with us, I was so afraid of Auggie (the dog) getting really to rough with this poor baby kitten, so I kept him confine to the kitchen and in his carrier (an extra large one) in the beginning. But as most cats do, Bella learned to climb over the cardboard gate I had put across the opening into the kitchen. He wanted to be where the action was. He wanted to come and play with the rest of us.

And so our fun time as a whole family begins. The cat has turned out to be a holy terror. Jumping out from under the furniture attacking your feet. Climbing on the back of your recliner and playing with your hair. He tried to eat my pendant that is around my neck on chain. He gets under the covers at night and if you happen to move, he is attacking your feet, legs, etc. But the real fun is when both Auggie and Bella decide to rough house in the middle of my bed in the middle of the night. Now this isn't a constant occurrence every night, its sporatic.

Just this minute, as I am typing this, Bella was chasing a fly through the house and ended up here in the rubber room in the front window. He jumped and climbed up my curtains (lace ones at that) till the fly got away and curtains came tumbling down. I guess perhaps, Bella is telling me my curtains need a good washing. LOL Just something else to add to my to do list.

We'll find Bella in the most strangest places. We once found him lying in the middle of the bathtub. No water of course, but he was just lounging there like there was water. Another time, he dragged all the trash (luckily I had just emptied it, so there was only a few pieces of trash and the bag) from the trash bin and decided to sleep in there. When I saw him in there, I thought to myself, "Who threw the cat away?" LOL I got a picture of that!

So, there you have it, Life with Bella!! It seems though since Bella arrived on the scene, Auggie has calmed down a bit. Just a bit, but I'll take any little bit I can get!

Thanks for letting me share the antics of Bella and Auggie. Life is so exciting around here these days. Its hard to keep up.

So until next time,

Love the pet story and photos! Pets make life more fun and interesting. We lost our dog, a female Springer Spaniel named Sam, five and a half years ago just two weeks short of her 16th birthday. My husband was so attached to her, he will not hear of getting another dog. Ugh! One stubborn Scandinavian! That said, I'll just have to enjoy other peoples' pets, so keep sharing!!!
