A new family member

On Friday, we went to the pet store to buy some goldfish and Mikinley and Renee were looking at the kittens. well, we bought the fish and then walked out to the van where my mom was waiting with the boys. Mikinley and Renee immediately started talking about how cute the little seven week old kitties were and my mom decided to go in and have a look. She was inside for about ten minutes, which is a pretty long time for my mom, who usually tries to avoid cats, since some of us are allergic to them. When she came out of the store, she wanted to know which one we thought was the cutest. Renee and Mikinley both egerly volunteered to show her, and they all disappeared into the pet store for about half an hour! When they finally came out, Mikinley had in her arms a bag of cat litter and a cat carrier, My mom, a litter box, toys, and some other cat supplies, and Renee, a VERY cute black and white male kitten! We brought everything home and set up the kitties home in the basement, with his food bowls, bed, and toys. Then began the name suggestions. A few names that were suggested were Pepper, which is really more of a girl name, which is why we didn't chose it, Mickey, and Murphy. But what really settled it was when Benjamin saw the seven week, black and white kitty, and while cuddling the little kitten, said in an excited voice, "Hi, Moo!" What a cutie! so Benjamin got almost all of the votes for the name he had picked out. Here are some pictures of our new kitten, Moo :) I will post some better pictures later too, but this is the best I can do with my ipod right now. :)
