I feel remiss, readers! I have not formally introduced all of you to our newest family member.
Please forgive me, and meet Pikachu!
|Isn't she pretty?|
My 6 year-old son, of course, is the one who came up with the name. He's obsessed with Pokemon right now, and Pikachu is a main character in the show. Here's the original Pikachu:
|Do you see the resemblance ;) ?|
She's been a great addition to the family. She was a rather lonesome barn cat for years, and when I told my riding instructor we were hoping to adopt a kitty, she suggested we take Tina (now re-named Pikachu) home. We couldn't have asked for a better pet. She's calm, affectionate, and playful. We LOVE her. [Side note: if you are thinking of getting a pet, consider adopting one! It's an awesome experience.]
The fact that my kids and I convinced my dog-loving husband to give a cat a try is also a pretty huge deal. He loves her now too and can often be found petting her on his lap in the evenings.
|Besides, who could resist those chunky, fluffy paws, calico fur, and green eyes?|
Ancient wisdom and folklore from many cultures have believed that Calicos are magical and bring good luck. I think I agree...
Pikachu is sitting/sleeping in her favorite spot-- my lap-- as I type this. You can find more Pikachu Pics on my Instagram page (of course): www.Instagram.com/FranticMama.
How about you guys? Who has pets? Are you a dog person, a cat person, or like me, an everything-with-fur person?
