Meet JoJo...

Chelsea and I have a new addition to our little family.  It is a sweet little feline.  His name is JoJo.  He belonged to my neighbor and friend, Audrey.  Audrey raised JoJo from one week old.  He was dropper-fed and was a rescued, abandoned barn cat.  Audrey became very allergic to JoJo and could not continue caring for JoJo as she has too many health problems. 


Honey is not pleased with JoJo's presence at all.  She has spent the last few days hissing at him.  I am hoping that they will become eventual good friends.  JoJo has become attached to Chelsea and sees her as his Mommy.  He has such a sweet disposition.

I have been very, very busy the last few days getting all kinds of things done.  I have been too much of a procrastinator and it has bitten me.  So I spent the bulk of two days taking care of things that I have put off.  My list has dwindled and I am breathing easier.  Now, to get to my Christmas shopping list.  I do not like shopping for Christmas gifts.  For some reason, I feel like I have to get the perfect gift.  What does this say about me?  I have been this way for years.  It causes stress.  I just need to not be this way.  Thursday is decorating day!  That will be fun!  It was great talking to those of you who made it to the chat on Monday!  It was a good, good time!  I am off here to get some needed and deserved rest.  Take time for yourself, everyone.

  4. Ahhhhhhhhhhh what a cutie... we just got a new addition of the feline kind here too and it just takes a bit of time for them to warm up to eachother.  Our new kitty Chloe is gettin along with all our four legged friends here but it took like a week lol.  Animals are funny bout territory but in the end they end up chaseing each other round the house. knockin things down as a team lol... have a good day.. oh and if it helps I procrastinate too ,, matter fact thats what I am doin right now lol.

  5. Awwwwwww I want JoJo what an unbelieveable sweet little thing!!  I know what you mean about Christmas shopping.  It's like you search for ever but never really find what you are looking for or have in mind!

  6. awwwwwwww, I love jojo. You are so lucky to have him. I have asked for a kitten for christmas but doubt I will get one. I love cats. Enjoy him :).............Jules xxx


  7. Oh he's adoreable Val!!!
    I want Jo-Jo :o)
    Hopfully Honey will get to like having a little playmate to boss around!

  8. What an adorable little kitty! Looks alot like my maizy! (I 'll post a pic maizy sometime). I've been doing the same thing around here. Being sick last week really kicked me in the bum!I'm so far behind around here.

  9. I could just keep staring at that adorable kitten. : )
    There are no perfect gifts.....Love comes the closest and even it has imperfections.
    : )


  10. I love little JO JO.  Such curious little eyes.
    Have fun decorating.  Try to enjoy Christmas shopping w/no stress.  You can remind me of that here in a week or two ok?

  11. Aww! He's so cute! I think Honey needs some extra attention. Maybe give her some special treats whenever JoJo is around so she associated the new kitty with something good? LOL It's tricky introducing a new "baby" where there is already a queen of the palace. :-)

  12. JoJo is so precious!  What a sweetheart.  I'd give Honey a bit more attention so she knows she has nothing to be jealous of.  I'm sure with time they will get along.


  13. AWWWWWWWWW, JOJO IS ADORABLE..........................STORMIE

  14. Jojo is adorable.  What a sweetie you've got there.  I just love baby animals.  Well I love them even when they grow up.  :-)

  15. That's a very cute kitty. Christmas shopping is sometimes stressful, the only person that I have trouble finding a gift for is my mother-in-law. She is very hard to please. I hope that you get all your shopping done with ease. God Bless

  16. he is absolutely one of the cutest things I have seen in ages! you must be so happy val!!! :)


Please leave your thoughts - fun, intelligent, silly, joyful, spacy - it matters not =)
