and Noira makes three!

Here she is!
Well, you knew we'd get her, didn't you? I called on Thursday and no one had claimed her... so a quick drive to the Humane Society, $85 later, and she's OURS!

Zeke and I both agreed it was a LOT of money, but Zeke also said, "I can be easily swayed." Well, that's a YES in my book! I know it's silly. It's just a cat. But I am so thankful that Zeke got this new job in October so we could afford to adopt Noira. She is really sweet. It is SO worth every penny to see my children enjoying her; to see Gabe hold her and talk to her like she's a little baby. Thanks, honey, for giving in!

There was a sign at the Humane Society: "Cats are like potato chips, you can never have just one!" When I was a little girl, I had a "School Memories" scrapbook. Each page was for each school year. There were different sections of the page to fill in different things about you such as: friends, teacher's name, interests, favorite school subject, etc. There was also a section labeled: "When I grow up I want to be _________." When I was 10 years old, I wrote in the blank: "a person with 100 cats." Well, I won't get 100 or even 10, but I really enjoy having them in our home.

I'm quite surprised at how well Caspian and Pippin are handling the new addition. She's been growling at them tonight when they get too close, but that's about it. They just look at her and then at me like, "What's her problem?!"
Staring contest:
Pippin was showing off after we brought Noira home.
He was vying for some serious attention:
Caspian was bored with the whole ordeal and promptly went to sleep on top of Kaia's coat:

P.S. The Humane Society named her "Simone." So we decided that would be her middle name. "Noira Simone" sounds very French, doesn't it?

P.P.S. Just for the record, Caspian's middle name is Blue (also from the Humane Society). And Pippin's middle name is Zucchini (from Kaia).

Doctrine and Covenants 59:18 "Yea all things which come of the earth are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart." Well, I think Heavenly Father created cats to gladden our hearts.


  1. So glad you got her! I didn't think I would miss my cats as bad as I do. We had to leave them with my mom when we moved. They ran away. I can't wait til I am in a place where I can have a cat again.

  2. Would you be willing to dunk each of them in water and take a photo of them for me? please and thank you

  3. @Dedra, I'll see what I can do... the Humane Society told us we should give Noira a bath...

  4. Very cute! Looks like a perfect match for your new cat and her new home. :)

  5. I still can't believe they would make you pay the money since you found her. I'm glad she is making your family happy :)

  6. I love happy endings. :) And I adore your kittie's names, they are so fun.

  7. Glad you got her, well worth the money. Sorry about my rant on the last one. :)
