meet the newest member of our family, Jiji :)




this was a birthday gift for our daughter who just turned 5 on the 17th... but i must say she's been a treasure for the whole family. it's been a year and a half since our beloved Gambit passed away and what a delight to have a little kitten! i have always adopted older cats, so i haven't had the pleasure of taking care of a little one since childhood. Miss Jiji (named after Jiji of Kiki's Delivery Service fame- and who she looks nothing like) is almost 6 months old. she is incredibly sweet, loves to curl up on your chest or lap to sleep, is generous and playful, and even comes when she's called~! she had such a rough start at life, found on the side of a road near death and the rescue group that took her in was certain she wouldn't make it. but through their tireless efforts, they were able to save her. she fought infection after infection, along with some bouts of GI problems but is basically healthy now. she and ransom get along just fine too and snuggled together for the first time last night, after only a week in the same home.

welcome little girl! we are very much in love with you!
