We have a new family member: Lucy the kitten. We got her from friends at church, and she is absolutely adorable. It’s been a long time since we had a kitten in our family, too long if you ask me. Lucy is only about 2 1/2 months old so she is still tiny, still frisky, still funny. She can jump a mile in the air at the slightest movement, and can attack a pair of socks or a ponytail holder with a vengeance found nowhere except in a new kitten. Our family is now safe from all renegade ponytail holders. The kids just love her, although I’m not certain the feeling is mutual, since they constantly “love” her. Elliot tolerates her as long as she doesn’t jump up into his personal space.
We’re looking forward to watching Lucy the kitten grow into Lucy the cat and being part of our family for a nice long time.
