Meet Our New Addition!

We have a new family member and his name is Lowenstein.



It all started when Mama was looking at kitties on the Great Plains SPCA website. She came across this handsome fellow. The cool part? His name at the shelter was Palmer! Mama thought maybe it was a sign. She decided that she and Dad should go look at him, so they did.

Mama fell in love with Palmer in an instant. He was sweet and cuddly right away. He had Dad wrapped around his paw quickly, too.


Mama and Dad decided that they shouldn't bring him home without telling Grandma and Grandpa first, so they put a hold on him. They started discussing names, too. Palmer Palmer would have been cute, but they wanted to keep up with the theme of names from A League of Their Own. They finally settled on Lowenstein.

The next day they drove back to Great Plains to make it official. It was a very happy time for all of them!


So far, things have been going great. Lowenstein has been living in Mama and Dad's room. He is a champion cuddler and nuzzles Mama's face. He's just what she has needed! Introductions to the other furry family members have been slow. Harvey isn't crazy about another cat in the house and Evelyn is scared of everything. He and Dottie took to each other right away though!


Lowenstein is very small. He's five years old and was brought into the shelter as a stray. They have no idea what his life was like before he was rescued, but surely a cat this sweet lived with a family before. He's got the tiniest little meow and is never pushy. Whenever one of the other cats hisses at him, he just ignores it and doesn't let it upset him.

He's taking on many of the responsibilities that used to be mine. He sleeps with Mama, talks to her, and keeps her company when she's in the bathroom.


I have a feeling Lowenstein and Mama are going to have a strong bond. He's already got her back!
