Suckered Yet Again

This evening we went out for a few hours to do a little bit of Christmas shopping.  On our way home, we decided to swing by the pet store.  The kids love going in there to look at all of the lizards and snakes, and to pet the guinea pigs and rabbits.  Somehow, we wound up coming home with this:

She looks all sleepy and innocent in this photo, but she has been a hellion all night, wreaking havoc on our Christmas tree and climbing up every thing.  We lost her for about an hour and finally found her here--in the top drawer of Trinity's dresser, napping in a pile of belts, hats, and socks.  I named her Shera.

I'm not much of a cat person, but I am a sucker for animals in general, and I finally caved in to all of the begging and pleading.  Not from the kids (although they chimed in too), but from my ever-mature, feline-loving hubby.  On the bright side, at least we came home with just a kitten, and not a chinchilla, bearded dragon, and baby desert tortoise.  We really need to stay away from pet stores.


  1. I can't believe you guys got another pet! That is too funny! That's how we are though--we just love getting new pets. We have been talking abot getting a Basset Hound...(like we don't have enough animals already!). What a cutie though! I love kittens.

  2. Aw, she's cute!! I love cats, even though I'm crazy allergic. They're much easier to care for than dogs, in my experience. Of course, my dog is also crazy evil (shih-tzu's usually are) so that may account for my feelings.

  3. Clint is a cat lover? I would have never guessed. He just seems more of a larger, wilder type animal lover, if that makes sense.

    Shera is cute. I am a little allergic myself, but cats are cute. They just don't seem as interactive as dogs - definitely easier to take care of though.

    Welcome to the Perkins' home, Shera!

  4. HA, Shan! Would now be a good time to bring up the fact that you guys have a dog, several rats, a snake, and--oh YEAH, let's not forget the pig!

    Kristyn and Niecy, I'm slightly allergic to cats too, but it's pretty mild. The fur makes my eyes water/itch from time to time. And of course this new one is all up in my grill, rubbing herself all over my face and neck. She has NO concept of personal space. Glad the allergy is a mild one. :) Niecy, Clint is a big time cat lover. I absolutely dread it any time someone is giving away kittens in front of the grocery store, because it is nearly impossible to get him away. He doesn't care for dogs at all. I'm a major dog-lover, and the bigger the dog, the better (hence the reason we have a newf). Kristyn, Anakin crazy evil? Nahhhh, not that little cutie! ;-)
