Happy Friday!!! Hope your weekends are off to a great start! I’ve been wanting to share some good news, but just haven’t had much time to write up a post. On Labor Day weekend, the Petco near our house was having an adoption day. My mom had been wanting another cat for awhile now (we already have one dog and one cat), so we went over there to check it out. My mom immediately fell in love with this little guy…
…and he is now officaially a part of the family!!!
My mom decided to name him “Giuseppe”. I know, it’s a pretty strange name for a cat, but she loves naming her cats Italian names (our other cat’s name is Luigi). My family is Italian, and my mom’s grandfather’s name was Giuseppe, so I guess it’s pretty cool! We call him “Zeppi” for short.
When we first brought him home, he was a little shy and cautious. On the first day we had him, we couldn’t find him anywhere! My mom and I searched all over the house, and we finally found him…snuggled up with some of my mom’s Boyd’s bears collectibles!
While he was a bit shy at first, he warmed up to us pretty quick! He is such a sweet little boy! He loves to snuggle and have his belly rubbed. Anytime I sit on the couch, he immediately comes up onto my lap and starts purring! He is also so beautiful! His coat is shiny and healthy, and he has the coolest spots on his coat!
He’s also super silly, and loves to play! It’s so funny to watch kittens play…they will play with just about anything! He even plays with his own tail sometimes! He’s also now best friends with our other cat, Luigi. I will introduce my other pets in a different post sometime. If I did it all in one post, I think your computers might explode with cuteness! 🙂
I am so glad Guiseppe is a part of our family, and even happier that we adopted him from a rescue league. It feels good knowing that we are giving him a good home. It makes me sad to think there are so many homeless animals out there, but I am so glad that there are rescue leagues like the one we adopted Zeppi from. All of the cats they adopted out were up to date on their shots and spayed/neutered, and we just had to pay a small adoption fee. It’s so great that people devote their time (and money) to finding good homes for stray animals.
Questions!!! Do you have any pets? Are you more of a cat or dog person? (It’s ok if you can’t choose…it’s a hard decision for me too!)
