I am not exactly positive what our new cats name is. I thought I was told “Tessa”. But I have also heard “Tessie”, and “Tess” thrown around. My daughter has taken to calling her “T”.

This has been T’s base of operation for the past week:


Our guest room. See that little lump? Yep, that’s the cat.

And now, her debut appearance:


I was actually worried about how our other cat would react to T, but Tawny could care less. Tess is actually the one hissing and running from Tawny. But I am sure they will become friends, eventually.

The dog also has no problem with either cat and proceeds to ignore them both as much as possible.

Tess is coming out to visit much more often. She is very friendly.

Baxter got his staples out today!! I am thrilled to be done with the cone head – he just could not figure out his new “width” and was constantly hitting things with his cone head. He has knocked over my kids more than once! And I can’t wait for him to have a bath!!!

Baxter’s pathology report graded the tumor at a low “2”, which means we just have to keep an eye on it at this point.


As you saw from my “10 on the 10th” post, I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. We were in Seattle to celebrate my husband’s birthday. But it was Mother’s Day when we woke up, so I am claiming a bit of the festivities for my own too!

We enjoyed our night out, and I didn’t miss the kids one bit!

Okay, maybe I missed them a little…..

Cute pic of you two, and the kitty is super cute, too. I have to admire everyone else's cats b/c DH is allergic. So, no cats for us...EVER! :)

I had to giggle when I was the pictures of the new cat, especailly where she has been camping out. Cats are so silly that way!

I hope you had a good mother's day!!

Tess or T is pretty cute.

I think that cat and Queen Bitty are related. They share the same scathing glare. said...

LOL! I was looking for the kitty in the 1st pix. I have heard of UNDER the bed, but a cat under the covers (LOL) a new one on me!

What a cute mommy-daughter pix on the bottom!
