Welcome home, Mindy!

Yesterday we were able to bring Mindy home.  So far she is proving to be everything we hoped for in a kitten -- she is very friendly, she loves the kids and seeks them out for attention, she is smart and playful, and it was a very nice bonus that she slept peacefully all night long and didn't keep me awake!

She made it clear right away that she will let us know when she has something to complain about...she complained very loudly the whole way home because she didn't like being cooped up in the carrier...

She is pretty brave about exploring.  I was relieved that she loved the special home David had spent so much time preparing for her...his face was aglow when she discovered it!

She likes to explore "up, down, and all around" in typical kitten form.

She has very good taste...she discovered the knitting basket, sniffed all of the yarn, and decided to taste Abigail's wool.  In a day or two, she will start learning that "pssssst!" means she needs to find a different activity!

I had forgotten about kitten-proofing the house...anything that dangles is considered fair game for grabbing and biting!

She loves to play with the feathers on a wand that the kids picked out for her.

And this is what Mindy looks like when Molly comes to stare at far they just face off and hiss from afar, but we hope that they'll be good friends soon!

This morning Mindy is happily exploring and helping Bruce with his work, purring charmingly as she sprawls on his papers and walks on his keyboard.

Isn't she cute?!  Who can possibly resist a kitten?!

Looks like Mindy is going to fit in with your family just fine. I'm sure Molly will except her soon too. Love Gram

I like David's house and the sign he has on it that both Mindy AND Molly are loved. Not too many kids would do that.

She is adorable and I hope she continues to be a good kitten.
