One Cat, Two Cat, Three Cat, Moo Cat!

Welcome to our new home Tosh and Bella, the newest family members!


The new Editions to the Smith family have been quite entertaining over the past week to say the least. We adopted two new kittens from PetsMart here in our local community. Our family is very excited although sleep deprived about our new kittens! We decided on two kittens as we currently have one cat named Moo that has been getting a bit older and let's just say a little overweight. So we decided to spice things up a bit in our household. Each of our daughters got to pick one kitten out that they would have to be responsible for. Caitlyn, our oldest daughter chose this 4 month old black and white kitten above and named him Tosh.


Kailee, our youngest daughter loved this gray kitten with 5 toes on each foot and decided that this was the one for her. At first she named her Alice, but then after thinking about it gave her a much better suited name for her and called her Bella. She is 5 months old and is the mischievous one out of the two. She keeps the family up in the middle of the night wanting to play. We are still trying to get both kittens to sleep at night, for the most part they are getting better.

Bella Loves chasing the mouse cursor on the computer so it is really hard to try to type and see around her at the same time. She is doing it now even as I type! I am leaning all the way over to the left to see around her!

Tosh loves chasing colored string and is awesome at doing back flips while trying to grab it when the kids are holding it over his head.


Which brings us to our cat named Moo. She is a playful cat, but has been the ALPHA CAT ever since we brought her home as a kitten around two years ago. She is very fussy, fickle and playful at times. It is a big maybe even HUGE adjustment for her to accept the new kittens as new members of the family, but she has been doing better everyday and just this morning has actually managed to play a little with both kittens without hissing at them. I would love to show a picture of all three of them playing together, but they are cats so you know that will be almost an impossibility.

It is like having a baby all over again! Sleepless nights, extra food, things getting knocked over, and watching the two kittens get into full on cat wrestling fights! Sometimes I feel like a referee at a WWF Wrestling Match! One, Two, oh almost had Three, but Tosh got out of the headlock and is now going for a body slam. It has been so much fun watching the new life these two little beautiful and friendly kittens bring to this house. I think that God once again has blessed us with two miracles named Tosh and Bella.

Hope you like our newest editions to our home!

Stop by and say hi to them when you get a chance.

It is true Steve. How sad it is when our whole family can sit on the couch and just watch the amount of happiness that all three bring to our home and just what funny things that they come up with.

I'm just glad you said yes to two that day at Petsmart! I love you, did I ever tell you that???

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

That's a cute pic with Bella in front of the monitor...Wonder if she wants to have her own blog, too :)

I think it's good for "Moo" not to be alone...But sounds busy with the adjustments all of you have to do, aside from the cats, themselves. Have a great weekend to you and your family. God bless.

Awesome! May I make a suggestion. With our most recent kitty I tried something new. I put him in a kitty condo when we were sleeping and could not watch him. He was full of himself and always getting into trouble. It was tall and large enough to hold water, a litter box, toys, and we hung an hammock made out of an old pillow case in it. He LOVED it. It kept him safe and even if we heard him playing he wasn't getting into trouble or pouncing on us while we were sleeping. I am a light sleeper so I am the only one who still couldn't sleep well. In the end he is the best cat we have ever had. He comes when we call and responds to the word NO. Hope this helps.
Blessings, andrea

What cute kitties they are and sounds like ALOT of fun!!! I love their names, they look like they fit perfectly!

Thanks for sharing them with us....We have 3 that I will have to post about some day :)

Have a blessed weekend!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

They are so cute. We have one cat in the house, too. I agree with you, Steve, having pets in the house is like having children. :)

Your kitties are so sweet. I love cats and missing having them in the house to cuddle (asthma moved our pets outdoors). Your little gray one reminds me of my sweetest little fur ball that I had about 20 years ago now.

your new look is right up my alley. The tropics is the life for me...but God has a real sense of humor and planted me here in rainy overcast Maryland instead. I get to visit once a year, though.

Happy Saturday!

That's a lot of cats.

Hey, I read you earlier, I'm playing catch up on blog reading- anyway, I thanked you for the story/comment you left me on my post today, but when I went back to my place to read a new comment, I saw it was Kat who left the story- sorry. I think you left me one on an earlier post, though. So, still- thanks. :)

I recently had a sickly stray show up at my door and she has many, many toes! Seven toes on each front foot and six on the back!! She has moved right in and taken over the house! :)
