Big Soft Soft

Friday evening we attempted to kill some time by going to the animal shelter... and of course we had to visit the cats. We saw a name on a room-- "Big Soft Soft"-- and knew it was meant to be since we call our kitten "baby soft soft" all the time. He's a fat grey kitty with the greenest eyes and the sweetest disposition! He was so sweet that I couldn't wait to send in my adoption application on Saturday. I picked him up tonight around 5:30, took him to Pet Supplies Plus, and he rode around in the cart while I gave him toys to play with. He sat on my lap the whole way home, but the Mog is not particularly friendly with him. Actually, she's been stalking him the whole night and hissing. Miss Priss is not a fan of sharing her castle! It will be good for her ego to have a little competition... and now we have a lap cat like we wanted. I'm one step closer to being a crazy cat lady.. hah. We're trying to think of a shorter name for him, even though Big Soft Soft is cute. Any suggestions? He wasn't too into our photo shoot since the Mog was making him nervous, but here's a few shots:

The Farm

We haven't been to the farm in a long time, so I've been looking at pictures from there and wishing it were warm outside again so we could go play in the fields. It's a working beef farm, so there's tons of cows mooing around to take pictures of.

Babies everywhere!

Cows are very curious about what you're doing at all times and, most importantly, if you have grain for them.

This is Pepper, the farm dog. She's crazy... that's all I have to say about her.

This is the ol' farm house. It's currently unoccupied because James's parents built a new house with heat and air and all those lovely amenities. Maybe we can fix it up some day and live there.

If you've been to our house, you'll recognize this as the inspiration for a 6 foot painting James did in oil painting class.

Zoo Birds

I was going through our files and decided these birdies needed to get out and stretch their wings. These were all taken at the National Zoo in D.C. on our vacation last summer.

What a cute little owl, you might say. Well... just wait for his counterpart below...

I know the picture is blurry (bad lighting in a cage and all), but this is the most sinister looking bird I've ever seen! I bet his name is Mr. Grinch.

Contrast that to probably the most beautiful bird out there. Check out that tail!

I like his booger-y nose.
