Meeting June

Emma has checked kitten books out for months. Very serious naming discussions and downright harassment of this NON-cat person has finally resulted in a kitten named June joining our crazy crew. :) This summer promises to be full of long, happy visits with family and friends. Can't wait! My dear in-laws are in town for a couple of weeks and have enjoyed kid's recitals, tea parties, nature hikes, and a day at the shore. This next week, another recital, a treck to Mt. St. Helen's and the Portland farmer's market. Berry season in the NW really is something to look forward to and Oregon strawberries in June can't be beat (except by raspberries in July and blueberries in August). Am I tempting you to visit? Hope so! I think I might just snap out of my blog comma even!

I was a definite NON-CAT person too. Until we had some around. Now we have two - Tiggy, who you photographed with Amelia in the fields 3 summers ago, and her daughter Duchess. Duchess just had two of the absolute sweetest kittens ever - Pearl, who looks like a little polar bear, and Seashell ("Shelly") who has very unique tiger markings with white patches. We promised the kids if I got a job we could keep them both (as we'll be able to get them fixed!). AND. In the middle of the most horrible week, I did get a job! Mysterious God, who meets us in the fur of baby kittens and lights our dark paths with surprising bursts of light.

SHE LIVES!! :) Seriously, though, love the pic of your little kitten. Not a cat person either, put it off as long as humanly possible and finally conceded. And who does the cat constantly gravitate to?!? sigh.

Amy, nice to hear from you, and congratulations on your newest little Glover. She is adorable and I love her name. A kitten really does bring so much joy. Have fun with her.
