A Basket of Trouble!

About six weeks ago, on our way to a day with extended family, we found George. Well, Georgia, to be exact~but we call her George.

She was scrunched down in the middle of a usually busy highway intersection. It was 7:30 in the morning, so at least it wasn't in the heat of the day. She looked to be in good condition and was very happy to see us, so we picked up a free box for her at Wal Mart and continued on our way. All the nieces and nephews had a fun time playing with her and she slept most of the 2 1/2 hour trip back home.

It didn't take long for her to wiggle her way into our hearts, and now she is a cherished member of our fur baby family. She is a high-energy girl. So far, she has broken one pair of glasses, knocked over numerous glasses of tea, shredded paper towels, and I'm sure she's just getting started!
The rest of the cats are appalled, of course. They don't see any need for her to live here, LOL! Our house cat is especially upset and is only now venturing out of the bedroom closet for any length of time. The outdoor cats enjoy spitting at her when she goes out to play, but they will all adjust and get a long with her once she has moved outdoors with the rest of them.
Jackie, our shepherd mix, would love to play with her, but Jackie has learned about those little sharp things at the ends of cat's paws, so she is being cautious.
We also have a couple of new Bantam chicks and hopefully, more on the way.
That's about it for the animal news around the cabin. What about you~do you have any new pets at your house?


  1. Oh George is adorable! I bet the other pets warm up to her soon.

  2. NO new pets here Rosemary:) What a cute kitty though and Jackie is smart to be careful of those sharp claws:) Have a great weekend!!!

  3. Awwww... what a beautiful kitty George is! You obviously have a huge heart, to have picked her up and brought her home. No new pets here, three dogs are plenty!

  4. Awww.... she is so cute!! And the others will get used to her, I'm sure... at least learn to tolerate her! LOL
