Introducing.....A New Family Member
Hello Everyone! I'm excited today to introduce our newest family member! Please meet "Frisky Furmat Ross" our new kitten that we adopted two days ago from the Asheville Humane Society. He is a chunk of sweetness.
We wanted to wait a respectful amount of time, after losing Gracie, before getting another cat. Our house felt so empty, though, that we needed to go ahead with a new kitty. Our pets are never "replacements," because you can't replace a family member. They are "additions" to our family. We feel like we have Gracie's blessing with this little guy.
Because it has been seventeen years since we brought Groucho and Gracie home as kittens, we have forgotten just how small kittens are! We are told that this little guy is five months, but we are wondering if he might actually be younger. His behaviors are really young. He cries some when he wakes up and makes little noises when he eats. He was up and down the first night we had him but last night he slept well through the night.
Needless to say, we are enamored with this little guy. We kind of surprised ourselves picking out a boy. He came to us immediately when we entered the kitten room at the shelter and climbed up on both of our laps without hesitation. He is a real snuggler! We have debated names back and forth but finally settled on Frisky. His middle name is a play on the famous mathematician, Fermat. We just changed the spelling to Furmat. (Wink, wink). As proud fur parents we just know he will be the smartest cat around! If you are curious to know more about Pierre de Fermat, the mathematician, you can read about him here.
