Welcome Ripley

We have Ripley now. Jason came up with the name Ripley because it is his (and Walt Disney's) favorite train at Disneyland. If you know Jason at all you know that his life revolves around trains and Disneyland. Ripley is about 4 months old and was a stray. She is SUPER SWEET as long as Cali and the birds aren't around. Ripley will literally plop in your lap to be cuddled. If you hold her she will scoot up to your shoulder and go to sleep.

The first few days, Ripley and Cali have not been getting along AT ALL. They have been fighting like well... like cats. It seems like one long cat fight. Last night the fighting seemed to have changed. Although there is still some hissing, it seems that they are playing roughly now. This morning when Robin and I brought Cali down, Jason and Ripley were already downstairs. Ripley was with Jason but as soon as she saw Cali she came racing over to find Cali. We hope they will be friends.

Meet Cali

As Amber said in her last post, we added 2 new members to our family!!!! Yesterday Grandpa, Dad, Jason, Amber and I went to the animal shelter to adopt 2 kittens!!!!!! Their names are "Cali" and "Ripley". This post will be about "Cali" because we only have pictures of her right now. This is due to the fact that "Ripley" is still at the shelter, waiting to be spayed.We will talk about Ripley in the next post. We have "Cali" right now because she was deemed too much under weight to have the surgery. So we will take her back in about a month or so to have her spayed too.

Amber and I named our kitten "Cali" because it is short for "California". Cali is 2 months old and SOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!! Not only is she cute but she is also THE SWEETEST cat I know. She would much rather be with you than down on the ground playing.

Lastnight Grandpa was sitting on the couch and he felt something at his feet. When he looked down, Cali had come to lay at his feet and fell asleep. About 15 minutes later he put his feet up on the couch. After a few minutes, Amber heard him say "You little stinker". Cali had jumped up on the couch and got between his legs and fell asleep again!!!! It was SOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!

"There is nothing like a Home Sweet Home!!!"

"What RU look'n @?"

"Aren't I SOOOOOOO Sweet?"

"My family hopes I won't be a handful when I get bigger"
"Don't you wish you all could be a Cali girl?"

"This play gym is for the birds, but I'm taking over"

Hope all had a great 4th

Sorry its been a long while since we posted last. I was sick for a week and then we were on vacation for a week. We went to our time share near San Diego. We had a lot of fun. We went swimming, Downtown San Diego twice and the Wild Animal Park.

We had a lot of events the past couple of weeks. It was Fathers Day, Grandpas 79th Birthday , Grandma and Grandpas 57th Wedding Anniversary and 4th of July. Busy time for G-pa to receive gifts. He got a mattress pad for his bed, a big calculator so he can see it, several books and a web-cam from Bonnie and Mike.

Bonnie came down and spent a week with us. It was nice having her around. It was so nice that she had a hard time getting back home (HEHEHE). First, she kept having to change the date and time she would be able to get on a plane. She ended up having to make arrangements to fly on a Southwest flight leaving OC Airport (about a half hour south of us) @ 10 AM. We get to the airort and it turns out Bonnies pass is for Skywest (not Southwest) so she was unable to fly out of OC. We had to take her the the Long Beach Airport (about an hour west from us) for a 4 o'clock flight. She finally made it home in time for 4th of July festivities.

In a few hours G-pa, Robin, Jason and I are going to the local animal shelter to adopt two new members to the family. Watch for the next post to see what we get and to meet them.
