... P - A - W - S !
Yes, Anne and Jed have just added to their family this week by adopting a four month old kitten. Does this make us Grandparents now in some sort of way? We know we can call this our Grandkitty, but what will we be referred to in turn - guess we don't have to worry exactly because everyone knows a cat can't really talk! However, there should be some word that designates a Grandparent to a cat (or dog). But, I don't know what that word would be. It hardly seems right to be called the same word used by a real grandchild.
So, here he is...our new Grandkitty. The new "parents" are reportedly thrilled with this adorable addition to their little family. They are learning to cope with a little less sleep, finding out how much fun it is to come home every day after work to be greeted by their little bundle of "fur" and discovering that a dependent can be a source of finding new ways to spend that hard-earned cash on food, potty-training supplies and toys.
I say, Bring it on! because someday they will be even better parents to their future children as a result of working out many of these care issues now. Welcome to your new family, Oliver!!!
