the newest addition

a few of you know that my cat, tiger, died in dec 2k5. it took me a very long time to get over this, and even still, i have not visited her grave. however, i had recently pet-sit and decided i was ready for another feline in my life. chris said he would get one for me for christmas and, thus, began the great kitten search of 2007.

we looked at the shelters in lexington, woodford, and jessamine. i finally found one i fell in love with at the jessamine shelter. we brought her home on jan 4 and we are now bonded for life.

lilah is 4 months old, loves cuddling, has a feisty side, is not afraid of plastic bags, is afraid of the vacuum, and loves talking to chris on the webcam. she sleeps next to me and puts her paw on my hand. how stinking CUTE! she has already met grandma, grandpa, uncle brett, uncle eric, cousin lily, aunt maria, uncle mark, and aunt sarah. come on over for a visit!

we named her delilah after the song "hey there delilah." chris found that band right around the time we first started dating...1.5 years ago. that song eventually became overplayed, but it still holds a special place in our hearts because of our long-distance relationship.

welcome home, lilah!
