Our Family Has Grown - Wordless Wednesday

If the husband is going to take a week-long adventure excursion with his best buds, then I get to do things like adopt stray cats while he's gone!



Isn't he great? He fits in with us really well. His name is Hawthorne. Funny thing is, weeks ago, my son asked one of our friends, "Scott, will you buy me a big orange cat?" No need to buy the big orange cat, Scott. The universe sent us one!

And, here's another fun picture from our zoo outing yesterday. The gorilla was systematically puking up his food and then licking and eating it. He did this over and over. It never got old. My son and I laughed and laughed. These are things that amuse me.



I am linking up with Live and Love Out Loud and Parenting by Dummies for Wordless Wednesday!

hhehee, ohh you silly gorilla.

Aw I love that a kitty adopted you. You know they pick you vs us picking them. That's just how they roll. Love the name, very unique!

Hawthorne is an interesting name for a cat!

Oh how I love pet names that aren't commonplace. I once told a person I was working with that I named my cat Michael, because Mike just sounded to common. I found out later that the security guard standing next to us was named Mike, lol. He was a good sport about it all :)

Just reading about the gorilla had me giggling!

It's sweet, too, how the "big orange cat" request turned out. :)
