Introducing, the newest member of our family, Mittens...
And here she is on the annoying Caillou chair. (No, the chair isn't annoying. Caillou is annoying. But the chair is fine. We like the chair.)
Mittens is 5 months 2 weeks old, black and grey tabby, and she's a girl. She's the sweetest, gentlest little kitten. EVER.
We had no intention of bringing home the first kitten we spotted at the Humane society, but we couldn't deny the instant connection. And now, in less than 24 hours, she has us wrapped around her paw. She has, in turn, deemed us fit to be her family.
Mini loves that she now has her little baby kitten. If she could slap a diaper on Mittens and change it periodically, she would. She cuddles her, makes her caves with pillows and blankets, and follows her constantly.
Lam just thinks she's nice.
That night though, Mittens was probably wondering what the hell kind of weird cult she joined, because at 8:25pm, the lights started to turn off all around the house until we were in complete darkness.
Meh, she'll get used to Earth Night. We do it often enough as you can see here and here.
Why? Because it's so much fun! The kids had their books and colouring books/markers. Mini and I coloured the rainbow in her colouring book. Roomie was doing math stuff...
... which would probably explain why he looks the way he does in this picture (he's the dude on the left behind the candles).
