Please tell me my tricky title and intro caught SOMEONE off guard. I had to do it. Anyway, yes, we've finally decided to get our first family pet. We debated and debated over a puppy or a kitten and, well, now you know what we picked. Isn't he cute?! He's an all white fur ball and so much fun for the kids. I'm so glad we finally broke down and got them a pet.
Cash has loved Hank from the moment we got him. In fact the first few days we had him, you could almost always find Cash out in the garage, sitting in the kitten's little bed with him showering him with love and affection! Cash's face is the face of pure joy! Cash is always bringing in the kitten and proclaims his justification by saying, "but Mom, I like my Hank, he's my best friend" - to which I usually always give in.
At first, Vanna didn't know what to think about Hank and quite frankly I don't think Hank liked her at first because of all her darling squeals of excitement whenever she saw him. He's definitely warmed up to her though. And she has more than warmed up to Hank. All of the sudden I think she decided that she was Hank's little mother and totes him around everywhere. He's pretty good to accept the torment and isn't one to scratch at her or anything which I really appreciate. In fact, all in all, I'm very pleased with Hank. He's very good natured, super playful, and even litter trained himself!
Over the couple weeks that we've had Hank he's grown a bunch! You can see just how much in the difference between the first picture in this post and this last one. We still think he's pretty darn cute though.
This picture was taken to capture his limited time to himself. Between the two of the kids, this poor kitten hardly gets a non-cuddled moment but one thing is for certain - he is loved!
