Well we knew we were going to get a new kitty, so today was the day. Jim found an ad in today's classifieds for "long haired kittens, all female". Perfect! We called and they said they had 3 females and we could come & see them around 4pm. Perfect! We got there and one of the kittens was super skittish & cried. We knew it wasn't going to be that one. There were two others to choose from, one was mostly calico and one was striped, but with some orange/brown on her. We loved the stripe one and she seemed to have a great temperment. So off we went (and yes, they tried to get us to take more than one. LOL).
We discussed names in the car. We had talked about naming her Daisy - somewhat for the Disney theme, somewhat cuz it's cute. We kicked around a few other names.... Ariel, Princess Aurora, Tinkerbell, Jasmine, Tiger Lily, etc... but Daisy stuck. Then we were thinking Daisy Jasmine, but it didn't flow well enough. Then I thought of Daisy Jane - for those of you who are old enough to remember, it's a song by America, which was one of the first CDs Jim & I listened to a lot when we first started dating. So Daisy Jane stuck, even though I'm probably the only one who'll keep the middle name. Jim said she could be DJ. lol
We got home and showed her the new catbox (we had gone to WalMart in the afternoon to buy all new cat supplies.). She is a bit more skittish at home than she was at their house. She's not quite sure what to do with herself and basically tried to hide for awhile. Andrew got out a new cat toy (it's like a fishing pole thing with a bird on the end), but she wasn't interested. Then, we found a toy mouse, which was an instant hit. After that, we got out some ribbon and she really came out (from behind the couch) and started to play a lot. After about 20 minutes, she passed out. LOL. Isn't she adorable?
