Our newest addition. Not to be confused with Bobby Brown’s New Edition.

We went to the pet adoption center last week. It was where we found our kitty, Maisy, and I was hoping to get a second cat.

My hubby was less than thrilled with the idea but then we saw this 2 month old kitten named Cupcake. It was love at first site for me. We brought her home Wednesday afternoon and she’s been keeping us very busy. Maisy still isn’t sure about her and seeing the two of them together is quite a sight. Maisy is such a big cat and our new kitten is so tiny.

The little hummingbird is so excited and we’re still working on teaching her that she has to be much more gentle with Cupcake. My hubby and I had planned on sticking with that name but I started thinking of others.

I was online Wednesday night and went through tons of names. Then I saw what I think is the absolute perfectly perfect name for our new little kitten. It also doesn’t hurt that me and the hubby were huge fans of the show Lost. The first few times I said the name, I tried to say it in a Scottish accent like Desmond. Yep. I’m odd.

So, I would love to introduce you to our newest and cutest addition…..


I’m sure you know what comes next. Some cutie patootie pictures of Penny. This is one of the few times I was able to take photos of her without the pics coming out in a big blur.






It’s been over 15 years since we’ve had a kitten so I’ve forgotten just how psycho hyper they are. My arms and hands are all scratched up so it looks like Wolverine attacked me.

Since yesterday I’ve been trying to explain to Penny that my in-laws will be here tonight so she needs to make sure to make a mad dash onto my mother-in-law’s back and sink her claws in her but I’m pretty sure she doesn’t really understand what I’m saying. She is only 2 months old after all.

I have to mention that this short post has been an enormous undertaking because *I’m saying this in my Scottish Desmond accent* Pennnyyyyy! keeps on attacking my hands as I type this and jumping on my laptop keyboard.

She’s also trying to chew on the power cord but I told her I really don’t want to have a fried kitty like the one in the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie.

I’ll leave you with this. Last night when my hubby was reading a magazine before bed, he took one of the magazine’s inserts and made a little hat out of it. He put it on Penny’s butt and said look, now she has an asshat.

    Funny. My parents named their kitten “Penny”. They are going to take Penny to get declawed this week. I feel bad for them, because Penny will SOOOO make them pay for this transgression.
    Absolutely adorable kitten. Loved the “asshat” contribution from your hubby. Great stuff! Can’t wait until we can get a kitten again.

    Asshat! Ahhahahaa. And I love Christmas Vacation! Try not to wrap Penny up as a Christmas gift, k? Glad you have a happy new addition.

    we have an 8 week old kitten as well, he is hell on paws! although he is adorable he gets into all kinds of trouble and is constantly learning how to fly thanks to his incessant need to go near our food~

    Eek! In-Laws!! If yours are anything like mine, hearing that word is worse than “FIRE!” in a movie theatre.

    Omg, so cute!! I love new baby kitties! I wish that the hubby and I could get another one, but we already have two that are 3, and they would probably be very unhappy with us.

    Aww she is adorable! Sorry about your arm… All I keep thinking is how to say Desmond in a scottish accent!! 🙂

    She is so cute! I love her coloring. When your m-i-l isn’t looking, you should plant some cat nip on her so the little wolverine will be sure to attack. Bwahahahahaha!
