I have happy news!

I’m not pregnant because if that was the happy news, I wouldn’t be able to write this. Instead, I would be stuck with my head in the toilet, puking my guts out and saying over and over again “What was I thinking?” or “When the hell am I gonna get that damn glow that I hear everyone talking about?”

We have a new addition, a sweet kitty!

As you may or may not know, our cat that we’ve had for nearly 15 years, Zira, went missing on March 4th when a dumbass repairman came over and apparently left the door open while he was going back and forth to his truck. My hubby and I are still crushed.

I’ve been wanting to get a second cat for some time but my husband was less than thrilled with the idea. With Zira missing, he started to warm up to the idea.

We went to an animal rescue center just to look but it’s hard not wanting to adopt all of the animals while there. I don’t want to be known as the Kelsey Grammer of cats by going from one to another but we saw a kitty that we loved.

We went to look at other cats a few days later but kept on thinking of the kitty we saw earlier in the week. When we went back to see her, we knew we had to adopt her. We got her two days later, on St. Patrick’s Day, and just a day before my in-laws came to visit.

My husband and I couldn’t agree on a name for our cat. I think we had an easier time naming our daughter but we finally settled on Maisy (like Daisy). After a few weeks with us, her full name has turned into Maisy Daze Sweet Potato Purr Muffin.

I know what you’re thinking. Her name is the most regal name ever!

My mother-in-law welcomed our new kitty into the family by calling her fat and said she needs to go on a diet. Yes, seriously. I’m surprised she didn’t show Maisy a picture of when she was a newborn kitten and told her “maybe now you’ll think about losing some weight”.

The animal rescue center didn’t know much about her history. She’s at least a year old (we think she’s probably a few years old) and was found in August of last year. She had kittens back then and was put in a foster home.

Once the kittens were weaned, Maisy was at the main animal rescue center (it wasn’t the SPCA) and at pet store adoption centers for the last 7 months.

When we decided that she was the kitty for us and wanted to adopt her, the woman who does the adoptions wasn’t going to be there the next day. Even though we only had to wait a few days, it felt awful knowing she had to spend even more time alone in a cage.

She’s home now though! Maisy is such a sweetie and the little hummingbird loves our new kit-tay.

Here are some pics of our adorable Maisy Daze.

Sleepy kitty.

I love her little paws.

She can't resist laying on warm, clean clothes.

The little hummingbird makes sure Maisy has plenty of books to read.

If the kitty isn't going to use her bed then I will.

    Aw, such a sweet looking kitteh! Congratulations. I’d love one, but hubby and I are both allergic. Nothing like a warm kitteh on your lap. 🙂

    Yay new kitty! Can’t believe your MIL said she was fat!
    We have a dog and guess what her name is? Maisy! Yep. Although the boys prefer to call her May-May, Moo-Moo or Ju-Ju…

    I am behind the times as well- yay for rescuing Maisy! I’m sure she’ll have a long and happy life with you all.

    Also? Have you considered the possibility that your M-I-L is actually half human and half pure evil? Just wondering…
