Preston has asked for a kitty for over a year. We decided that the next pet we got would be his. What a perfect birthday present! And so fun to get a kitty at the beginning of the summer, as opposed to the end, so the kids could be home and play with kitty, instead of having to go to school every day. Hours of entertainment... and lots of kitty scratches too... We thought she was he... the vet corrected us. She is cute!
