New Kit in Town

We have welcomed a new addition to our family.  Introducing Bailey!

Isn’t he beautiful?

My hair-dooder, Alicia, knew I was looking for a mature cat (kittens don’t survive well in these woods).  So when her friend, Meg, mentioned she had to get rid of her cats, she hooked us up.

The moment we let Bailey out of his cage, he took off.  The next morning we could tell he had slept in his box on the porch, but he was nowhere to be found.  It turns out he was hiding under the grill cover.  Smart cat.
He and Whiskey are still trying to figure things out.  Since Bailey outweighs Whiskey by at least 20 lbs and has claws… well, let’s just say that Whiskey has already learned to quit sniffing Bailey’s butt.

What an adorable cat. And I'm not much of a cat fan. I don't know I had a cat when I was little, snowball. But since both kids are allergic to cats we never had one around.
We have a light dusting of snow. It's so pretty!
How about you?

LOL on the last line with Whiskers! Welcome home Bailey!! What a beautiful cat (but don't tell Koda I said that :) I never had a cat and I joked about getting one some time down the line. I think Bailey is definitely a welcomed new addition to your family and I think it was neat you were able to help someone out too.

enjoy the weekend :)

Very nice Kitteh. Love his nose :)

He is a good looking cat (I am not a cat lover) but more importantly, does he kill moles? I am half ready to get an outside cat for the mole problem in my front yard.

Congratulations. He looks like an amazing boy. Aren't you worried that he will just take off? I always limit the run of new kids for a week or so until they know where the food is served.

Bailey is a nice looking cat, and I'm sure he'll make a great addition to your family. How is he with kids? I had to laugh at what you wrote about Whiskey. LOL

Deanna, I have to admit when I posted I thought I was looking at my friend Dianna's blog! Thus the long time, no see comment. But how interesting that we have so much in common! I found you through .Osage bluff quilter and then went on to a joyful chaos. How Fun to be following all these wonderful Missouri women! Claire
