Anastasia got an early Christmas present tonight. I took her to the local animal shelter and let her pick out a kitten! She's been asking for months, and I never let on that I was planning to let her bring one home for Christmas. I've been looking for over a month now.
I'll take photo of her tomorrow, but I don't want to scare 'Tink' her first night home. (Anastasia named her after Tinkerbell.) She is tortoise colored -- meaning a little bit of everything. She is a teeny girl, only 2.5 pounds at 15 weeks of age! She is missing one leg, which we think only makes her extra special. The umbilical cord was wrapped around her leg at birth, so she lost it before she even took her first steps, so she barely even notices. She's a good hopper!
Wish I could post a photo of our sweet girl tonight, but we are keeping things very quiet and low-key for now. As Anastasia said " We need to treat her like you treated ME when I first came home." What a smart girl.
