Cat Thursday...An Extra Special Edition!



Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)


I'd like to introduce you to the new edition to our family, Arya Snow!




Arya is named for two of my favorite characters in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, Arya Stark and Jon Snow.  She is about four months old.  A little back story on her...my grandmother got her around Christmas.  Now my grandmother is in her 80s and she always seems to forget that she has severe asthma and when a kitten reaches a certain age, their dander really kicks in, thus negatively affecting said person with severe asthma.  Of course, I knew that she would not be keeping her very long so I told my dad that I would take her when Grandma was ready.  It turns out, she was ready last week.  So lucky us...we picked her up Sunday.  She has adjusted quite nicely and she's learning her name.  And Alice is starting to be more tolerant of her and they have even played a few times (see pics below) so I'm hoping they'll be fast friends soon.  We couldn't be more happy to have another fur baby in our midst!

  10. Sweet Arya ... She looks like she would love to cuddle. I think Alice will befriend her soon and then they can take care of each other the way my boyz do. You are a good daughter to help out your Mom. She can feel comfortable tht Arya is in a good home.

  20. LOL Alice is looking mighty big compared to little Arya =)
    I am sure they will be fast furbally friends soon. Such a good thing for Arya that your gma had you for a backup plan! Good on you=)

  21. Thanks, Marie! Yeah, we thought Alice was big before (the vet thought she was a male, because she's so big), but next to Arya, she looks like a giant. They are so funny together. It's hilarious to watch.

    I knew Grandma wouldn't be keeping her long so that's why I put the feelers out early. ;O) Another kitty rescued from potential doom! YAY!
