Happy Birthday Aubie!

Kitty Kitty meet Aubie...

Sleeping Beauty

Yay! We got a kitten!!

Well hello there Foxi doggie...

This post is for Jared...(it was his idea) When Each of our kids turn 6 they get to choose their pet. Jared was a cat lover from day one, starting with his beloved stuffed Kitty Kitty that went EVERYWHERE for the first 7 years of his life. In 2005 we started looking around on the internet for kittens for Jared's birthday. We knew what his answer would be to the pet question and we wanted to go into it well prepared. I have allergies as does Grammy so cats were looking like a slim possibility. We found a breed called Bengal and decided that it looked and sounded like the breed for us. Not only does the cat look like a tiger (War Eagle!) it loves the water and acts more like a dog then other breeds of cats. Seeing that Rob and I were both dog people-this was welcomed news. We also read that they were hypoallergenic...good news for me! We told Jared that we needed to go visit Daddy's aunt Agatha in Charlotte( Rob doesn't have an aunt Agatha) and made the trip to go get our new love. Seeing as the date was April 1st, we could get away with our "April fool's" surprise. I thought he was going to bust out of his skin when he saw all the kittens. There was one that immediately chose Jared and we took her home. We named her Aubun's Dixieland Daisy, Aubie for short.
Right off the bat she got along very well with the kiddos as well as Foxi. She is a sweet little thing that is very attached to "her people", we can't imagine the house with out her.

Happy 3rd Birthday!!
