Today we picked up our new baby kitten from our friends the Wentworths. They had already named her Lucy, and although we gave Kya the option of changing her name to anything she wanted, she chose Lucy. "Lucy Barbie" to be exact! :) L.B. is such a love. She is very patient with the kids and enjoys playing as well as cuddling with us. She has yet to be introduced to our whole zoo (we are waiting to see what the dogs and Cliff the cat think until after Lucy settles in). She is scared of Wyatt because his approach is a little aggressive--he screams at the top of his lungs in a very high pitch and runs toward her like he's been shot out of a cannon. I'd be scared too! This will be a good lesson in gentleness for him, eventually.
She is the spitting image of Cliff when he was a baby with her fluffy fine grey and white hair; this unfortunately violates the entire purpose of getting another cat, which was to have a cat who didn't leave hair everywhere and who we could allow on the furniture from time to time without getting out the vacuum. Oh well. The more fur the merrier! (Is that how the saying goes?)
