The New Addition

Still no baby yet, we are still waiting, but there is a new addition. A KITTEN!!! Yes, I have a kitten. It is a little boy kitty who is currently being referred to as "Baby Kitty" because we cannot decide on a name. This is Atra (the cat in my avatar) and Miko's little brother, so we want to have to keep the slightly strange name theme. I want to name him Tolkien because Tolkien is one of my favourite authors, but Tom thinks that name is too pop culture. I will say that this cat is POSSESSED! I do not think it has slept for more than a few minutes here and there. It just runs! The big brother and big sister are very mad right now, though, so they refuse to stay in the house right now, but I figure they are going to have to come in soon because they do not like rain and it looks like that is what we are going to be getting soon.

On top of having a new kitty, I am very excited about my reading. I am finally reading the books by Tolkien that were closed off to me before. I read Tolkien for the first time before Amazon.ca, and using Amazon.com would have required my parents to buy them for me, so I could only read the books that were available in the bookstore. Even now, however many years later, the book store only carries The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. So, I am reading Christopher Tolkien's History of Middle-Earth right now, and it is really interesting. I would be finished the first book, but the Baby Kitty took over the day yesterday. It's my goal to finish it today. The first book is called Return of the Shadow, but it is actually book six in the total series.

It's a miracle, Baby Kitty is taking a nap! I will post pictures soon, but I cannot find the cord for my digital camera. Book reviews forth-coming, I would rather read right now than review.


  1. congrats on the new kitty!

    where are the pictures? lol

  2. I just found the cord. I will post some tomorrow night. :)

  3. I haven't read beyond The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings books. I really should look into his other work. :-)

    Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Have you decided on a new name yet? I think Tolkien is a good name. Maybe you can convince Tom of that with a little work. LOL

  4. I went away for the afternoon and when I got back Tom was at work, so we actually have not had a chance to rethink the name idea. I am thinking it will be Tolkien because Tom doesn't have a better name. I think Tolkien is cute, and while it might be "pop culture", it is not really a common cat name.

  5. Find the camera, must see pictures...! Love the idea of calling him Tolkien.
