I'm Baaak!!!!!

Hello everyone!!!! I am finally back to blogging again! I've been wanting to post for so long and life has just been so busy that I have hardly even been on the computer that much. I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and emails over the past month! April was busy, busy....We welcomed my brother and sister-in-law's twins on April 9th...Alex and Katherine. Healthy and happy! Little league season (for all three boys) has begun and mine and my youngest son's birthdays were in April. All is good!!!!
So I thought I would share my birthday gift with everyone. Warning: If you are not a cat lover, you may want to skip the rest of this post! Meet Simon....
I've been wanting a new kitty for quite a while now and when my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday this year I said (while cringing) a kitten????!!!! To my surprise he responded with "what kind?" Well I wasn't that surprised...I have to admit, my husband is wonderful. He is a British blue shorthair. Within a few days of me asking my husband found a breeder in Connecticut. He is the sweetest little thing!



Bailey immediately took him under his wing. He is being a great big cat brother. Penelope (my Siamese) on the other hand, has copped a major attitude.

Ever since I was little I have loved cats...all animals really.
We always had cats growing up and I just adore them. I've even given them an old yelloware water bowl to drink out of (in style)....




...and a shabby chic container to hold their food.





Since I am on the subject of cats...I am lovin' Grey Gardens on HBO. So fascinating isn't it!? The history, the house, the era and of course, Little Edie and Big Edie. Now, as much as I love cats, three is my limit....really!

So glad to see you are back! Simon is just too adorable. We had two Siamese cats growing up and I know they can be a bit finicky....but oh so sweet too.
Happy belated birthday.

Awwwwwwwww, what a sweet little face. He's a charmer already. Happy Belated Bday as well. I wish we had HBO, I would love to see the GG thing. I've seen clips, it looks awesome. There was a documentary a few years ago on PBS...it was fascinating indeed. And yeah, the cats....LOL.

I am definitely a cat person.
My favorite kitten--a female black domestic shorthair named Isabeau---who I rescued from living a feral life---is sleeping in her basket here beside my computer. She loves to be near me. Cats are such fun.
Your new little guy is so cute---and a beautiful breed.
Congratulations!
