New kitty in the family!

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. That’s because my 16 year old cat Midori had been rapidly declining in health over the last couple months, and we finally had to put her down a couple of weeks ago. Obviously I was heartbroken, and I’ll miss her a lot.

On the bright side, I now have a brand new kitty baby! Her name is Ripley, and she’s a 10 wk old tortoiseshell kitten. I picked her out from about a dozen kittens at the SPCA and brought her home last Wednesday. Of course I’ve been snapping photos like crazy. 🙂

You can see her beautiful tortie coloration really well here:

She’s a brave little soul. She’s not even afraid of the dog!

Her face is so kissable…but you have to steal the kisses quick! She doesn’t stay still for long.

And in tribute, here’s a pic of my old lady Midori. I’ll love you forever, sweet baby. ❤
