Persy!


Maya said goodbye to single digits today! All she wanted to celebrate her 10 years was another kitty....so we surprised her with this little ginger cutie!
He comes from the home of Kristin Nichols no less! Kristin had blogged about these kittens a few weeks ago and I contacted her to get first dibs on a ginger one. We kept his given name....Persimmon, or Persy for short.


It was so adorable to see the absolute pleasure and surprise on Maya's face! It was also wonderful to meet Kristin and see her beautiful and colourful home in person!

Life is good!

Happy birthday to Maya! And what a sweet, adorable, wonderful present she got. I got a kitten for my 11th birthday and it was quite possibly the happiest moment of my young life. :)

Hi All: Another kitten has left the nest. Persy's red long haired brother.
Hope Persy is doing fine.
