Welcome home sweet boy

As all of you know...I had to put my sweet, sweet Chester down in February. He was my best friend and lifted my spirits every single day. And I had no plans on getting another pet any time soon. But then my mom and dad told me they had already found a new baby and that was their birthday present to me. Here is his first picture (the lady who had him is holding him for the camera). He is six weeks old in the picture and I didn't give him a name until the ride home.











So I tried to hurry the bathroom remodel so that my house would be a good place for my new baby. I had decided on his name, for the most part. And then I spoke with Ellie and told her that I was getting a new baby kitten and she told me I had to name him Cupcake. So...he is now registered with the legal name...Fred Cupcake (last name is mine).


Fred has such a different personality than Chester so it has taken me a little time to adjust. And I did have some guilt when I first was going to bring him home. But I know that Chester loved me and would think it is great that there is a new baby in the house.

Welcome home Fred...you also bring a smile to my face every single day!

I love his markings on his side. And his name. My cat was george, so I have an affinity for simple names for cats.

Gwen said...

Awwwww! Hi, Fred! What a cutie!

Also, ever since I was a kid I've named everything I loved "Fred." Good choice!

I love that you named such a puffy ball of puffball love "Fred".

I'm so in love with the kitties these days- it's getting kind of gross but I don't care.

That's a cute cat but the cuteness is only a cover for mischief and eventual world domination. Watch your back.

Jennifer said...

He is so cute! Charlotte is in a lovin' kitties phase since her aunt and uncle now have 2. She even plays well with them.

What beautiful markings on Fred Cupcake! He is so, so cute!

I'm so sorry about Chester, but yes I'm sure he would've wanted you to bring home another kitty.

Found you at Whiskey's.

Thank you for your comment! I'm excited to meet people who are going thru or planning to go thru fertility as well. I'm going thru it with my girlfriend, she is very supportive and looking forward to our journey. What type of fertility treatment are you looking into doing?
