Introducing Jack

Last Wednesday our family grew by one feline friend. We had picked him out a week or so ago and were planning on waiting until he was 2 lbs. to bring him home.... but he's a little guy and it was taking a long time!! Every day we talked about what we would name him until finally the day came for him to live with us. His foster mommy decided it would be best for us to nurse him up to 2 lbs (he is 1 lb 6 oz right now) to get ready for his big un-man-ifying surgery.... on Wednesday he arrived after school and Ivy is so happy! He has become her playmate, her babydoll, and her proudest possession. She is doing a great job loving on him and helping take care of him. Even Kaya has decided to accept Jack.... after 4 days of hiding and hissing! I am hoping a new kitty will breath some energy into our large friend! Welcome, Jack, to the Smorstad family!!

  3. although this has no effect on whether I will or won't budge, that top picture is pretty cute.

    also, to help in my case, I remembered we are babysitting a large doberman next month who would swallow Jack whole at first chance if he was living in Summit View. that gives me at least another month of excuses and sanity!
