It's a Girl!

Yep...it's a girl kitty named Sunkist...and she came home with us yesterday afternoon.  She's pretty much a non-stop cat right now...exploring all around her new digs.  She roamed around all day Saturday, slowing down just enough to get comfortable for awhile & catch a little catnap.  The pic above is her just after waking me up at 5am today...she looks as if she pulled an all nighter!
You can see here...in a brief minute of rest...that she is polydactyl on her front paws...and the way she can flex those extra toes makes it look like she's attempting to develop opposable thumbs so she can rule the world!

This is how she spent a good part of her first day...watching birdies.  That's good kitty entertainment!

Yes, that's snow on the ground, but she's warming our house with her kitty presence, so I'm trying to ignore the snow.  It's good to have a kitty in this house again.

Apparently, Sunkist's original owners had to turn her in to the shelter when their landlord refused to let them keep cats.  Poor baby...she had been in there since May 2011.  She's got a good forever home now...and she's already trying to train us to do what she wants!

One last pic for today.  This is another morning photo...she had just come out of the back window & looks sad that there are no birdies yet...it's still dark out.  She'll get lots of good birdie watching time later today. 

Now to get her to stay off the kitchen table, stop clawing the furniture, and stop trying to chew on the Christmas tree.  We've unplugged the lights as a precaution.  She's already stolen those candy cane ornaments from the bottom of the tree & I'm hoping we can leave the tree up through the New Year.  I'll get a pic of her under the tree soon...she does like to sleep there...she has definitely made herself at home.

  2. Congrats on your new new home and new owners Sunkist! So happy to see you are already happily ruling the roost.

  3. What a beauty! You'll be busy chasing her around!

  4. I am so happy you got a new kitty! She's beautiful. She will help fill the void from putting your other cat down. Brandy has helped a great deal here that is for sure!

  5. I'm so glad you have a new "baby" to fill your life!

  6. Yay! Congrats to you and Sunkist!! Looks like she has been there forever already--no 'getting use to you' stage! Here's to many happy years ahead :)

  7. Oh Debbie, she's beautiful! She's completely adorable, and I'm so glad you and St.Phil have a new fur baby! Happy Holidays to your little family - I'm sending many happy hugs!

    p.s. I made four batches of your almond brittle today for work gifts. Thanks again, darlin'!

  8. Thanks for sharing the happy news! so good this beauty found you and a home for the rest of her life. Blessings to your family!

  9. What a gorgeous girl you have there! And I love that she's full of "cattitude" even though you just brought her home!

  10. Sunkist is precious, Debbie!!! I'm SO happy for you 2 and wishing you all a very very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, sweetie!!! Oh what a lucky baby she is :)
    Hugs and love,

  11. Debbie, Sunny is beautiful! I have 2 dogs but was needing a cat after losing our Magic 2 years ago. My son came through with a stray named Tiger and he has completed our furry family! Merry Christmas!
