My sweet sister in law gave us two kittens. They were strays that decided to stick around her house. She is allergic, so it wasn't a good idea for her to keep them. We have a mouse problem, especially in the winter, so we have REALLY been wanting some cats. I had no idea how much I would enjoy having these little pets. We love them so much. They are so sweet and patient with the kids picking them up and carrying them all over. I have tried to teach the boys how to pick them up so it won't hurt them. We are still working on names for them. So far Thomas wants Tom and Jerry and Jackson likes Dodge and Pip. We will see.
