A New Addition

I think by now, everyone knows about Mom and Dad's adventures with Harvey. He's a troublemaker, but absolutely adorable. The one thing he's not good at is cuddling. Maybe he will learn to be a lap cat one day, but Mom and Dad missed my cuddles and needed a kitty to do that again.

For the last few weeks, they've been on a mission to find a kitty who will be both a cuddler and a friend for Harvey to pal around with and help keep him out of trouble. Well, that day has arrived!

Meet Evelyn.

Evelyn was originally named Gizmo and had lived, along with her brofur Gadget, with a foster Mom from Wayside Waifs. She is 2 months old and just as sweet as can be!

Dad fell in love with her right away.

Once the adoption was completed they hopped in the car. Evelyn seemed to like the ride!

They had to make one stop before going home. They went to PetSmart. Mom wasn't expecting to adopt a kitten, so they had to buy her some kitten food. They bought her name tag too. Like a true girl, she loved shopping!

When they got home, Evelyn sat on Dad's lap for a long time and took a nap.

Harvey wasn't too happy with this new situation, so he observed from a safe location.

Later in the evening, Mom and Evelyn went to the bedroom to watch "A League of Their Own". Mom wanted her to see where her name came from.

I'm so happy for Mom and Dad. I know that they will enjoy having a new furry family member in the home. I really hope this heals Mama's broken heart the rest of the way. She misses me every day, but has so much love to give that other kitties should benefit from it. Evelyn is a lucky girl to have been adopted by the best parents around.

Meowy Crispmouse!

I know how much Mama loves this time of year so I thought I'd share some of her favorite pet related Christmas memories.

I've told you about Rosie, Mama's kitty that lived in Wichita. He was there to greet me when I went to the Rainbow Bridge. Even though he's a tough guy, he's also a big fan of Crispmouse. He and Mama had 17 years together, so they had a lot of holiday memories.
That's a happy kitty.

Rosie's last Crispmouse.

Of course, there was her doggie, Oscar. She could barely keep him in the house after he opened his gifts!

Mama always makes sure to get something special for Gpa's dog Yaz. That dog is crazy, but lovable.

Now, Mama is kept busy by Harvey. He's broken a few decorations, but she still loves him.

Harvey and Dad hamming it up by the tiny tree.

Little Dottie never gets left out of the festivities!

I only had two Christmases with Mama, but I'll always be there in memory for her.

I hope you all have a great holiday with both two- and four-legged family members. Every moment becomes a memory! Merry Crispmouse!
