I didn't think much but wanted to see the photos and couldn't help but grin when I saw this beautiful little 5 week old girl. She had to be ours! We ended up finishing our lunch, grabbing a few essentials and drove down an hour south of Atlanta to see the kittens. Lily was so excited she kept giggling and laughing at the small little fur babies. After a few minutes, Zach said he really wanted this little girl we had been looking at and we took her home!
We named her Belle and although Ellie is still unsure of this new addition to our family, we know she'll come around eventually. Having a kitten is a lot of work and we already adore how sweet, cuddle and affectionate she's been with everyone. Lily is still unsure since our cat is declawed and this little lady obviously still has all of hers.
If anyone has any tips to help us make the transition easier for her, or toddler or cat I'd love to read them! For those that you that don't know, Ellie is extremely territorial so she clearly is making her presence known with hissing and growling at Belle for now, which is understandable. Belle already ran out of our bedroom this morning and Ellie was so taken back she ran the opposite direction ha!
Thanks already for your sweet well wishes on my Snapchat ( @CaitW22) She's already loving being part of the family and we feel lucky to have her. And just be prepared for overload sharing of that little rascal on there!
