a gretel loaded post


she's home! the adorable and tiny 8 week old gretel snack-pack myers came home on saturday afternoon.

the snack-pack part of her name is kind of a long story, but she's gretel when she's sweet and snack-pack when she goes into kitten-crazy/adventure mode.

she fits right in here, and she is very comfortable already. she hasn't had a timid moment. within the first hour at home, she used her litter box! she's eating her food, learning what "no" means, scaring me to death by trying to climb up the screens on our windows. she already loves playing string and exploring all over the house. she plays really hard and then likes to crash on my tummy. she is a very cuddly kitty which i love. she can't jump up on the chair i use in the living room so she sits at my feet and asks to be picked up. i, of course, immediately indulge her. we have bonded like crazy. she gives me kisses and looks up into my eyes. ugh, i love her so much. i miss her when i'm not home. i am going to be a wreck when i have human babies.

i'm actually allergic to cats, so our bedroom is a no kitty zone. i thought gretel would cry when we went to bed on her first night, but she didn't! i had been cuddling with her in a blanket all day so that it would smell like me. i put it in her little bed outside our closed bedroom door, put her inside, gave her a little cuddle, and said good night. she was there every time i got up in the middle of the night and she was there when levi got up in the morning. and no crying!

lily is still adapting, but she's not really hissing at her anymore. we're giving lily lots of attention so she doesn't feel left out. within a week, i think she'll be comfortable with her. and within a couple weeks, i think they'll be friends. fingers crossed! :)

onto the photos! there's a million...i hope you don't mind.

(she's an apple kitty.)

(i took this photo of levi & lily about a month ago, so we had to get one with gretel too.)

  14. Your kitty is so cute! A new neighbor kitty dropped by our backyard yesterday. I love kitties. We just don't have a spot for a litter box. We have tried hard to figure that out, but no space.
