"oh my goodness, words, and sakes!" as hazel would say. we met our future kitten today. it's funny how it happened. i ran into a very sweet, very eccentric neighbor of mine the other day. she was pushing her cat down the street in a stroller. i told her that we were hoping to get a kitten soon. she called us yesterday to say that a friend of hers had a cat that just had babies and we could go meet them. they are just about 6 weeks old and not ready to leave their mom yet.
just look at those eyes!
here's mama, not too pleased about us
hazel tried to sneak this one out the door...
june, trying to figure out how she can get this one home without anybody noticing.
the man who had them was named knucklehead (i swear!) and the kitties are in his motorcycle repair shop.
he asked us which one we wanted, said he would hold him/her for us. really? how could we choose? (the two in this photo were my favorite. he thought the one in the back was a girl and the one in the front was a boy.) i wish i could take jasper there and let her choose. i told him we were not especially particular, but would prefer a girl. we are going to go back in a week and play with them some more and he said we could take one home the following week!
