Maybe we’re crazy. But we have a new family member.
Nathan’s karate teacher gave him to us. She had one last kitten and mentioned it in passing to Nate last Monday. Nate, in turn, told me. You see, I had thought we were going to wait until we were done having kids to get a cat. You see, I have been wanting a cat, but Nate wanted to wait until we were done having kids. And then out of the blue, here’s Nate telling me about a free kitten. I still don’t know what came over him.
The kids and I are thrilled. The kitten’s adorable and we all love him. I think Nate is pretty taken with our little guy too.
We named him Milo. Another shocker – Nate actually came up with the name – he remembered the movie “Milo and Otis” and said well we have our “Otis” with Abby, so why not Milo? And our kitten is orange like “Milo” from the movie, so it stuck.
In talking with the kids about names for the kitten, I asked Nathan what he thought. Nathan said, ” I think we should name him Gerrick Streeter.”
I kid you not. I have absolutely no idea where Nathan came up with that. Go figure.
Sorry, Nathan, new “Kikky” is not Gerrick Streeter” but “Milo.”
Welcome home, Milo. 🙂
