a neighbor came out of her house, scooped up the kitten, and gave her to us wrapped in a kitchen towel. the neighbor explained that the neighborhood was filled with baby kittens from stray cats who kept having kittens all summer. the kitten was starving and in need of help. the neighbor insisted that we take the kitten to find her a good home.
we knew right away that we couldn't keep the kitten ourselves (because leko rules the kingdom in our household) so we planned on taking her to a shelter. however, we didn't have much luck with the shelters and the kitten was so sweet that we hated to give her away. we kept her in our garage for a few days and gave her food, a bath, and a lot of love.
ryan's parents agreed to adopt the kitten and now she has a good home. it's great that she is in the family because now we can visit her. ryan's parents are still debating about a name for the new kitten but they are thinking about calling her pepper, which i think is really cute!
here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks with the new kitten in the family . . .
ryan's birthday party. all of the attention sure wore out the little girl and she fell asleep on the birthday boy's lap. so cute!^

we sure are excited that this little kitten is staying in the family because she is such a lover and we look forward to spending time with her and seeing her grow!
