One Down, Four to Go, Where the Sixth One is We'll Never Know

The kittens are SIX WEEKS old today! This morning a FedEx truck stopped out in front of our house, and the lady asked what we were doing with our kittens. Evidently she had stopped once before and asked Kullen about them (big mistake) and he said we were keeping them all. Anyway, she had her eye on my calico - but I had to sadly inform her that she was the one that we were not getting rid of, but she took a liking to this little white one. We realized when she left that we had never named her - and so we decided we would call here Edelweiss - Edie for short! (that really means that I decided!) It is sad to watch them go - but we really can't keep six cats! I know she will be loved - the lady has a 10 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. Edie is sure to get lots of TLC.


  1. Awww! She's so cute. I wish we could take one. Hannah really misses her cat. Someday we'll get a new one. I love the name Edelweiss!

  2. Awww! I can't believe they're so big! Is that the one that had the infected eye?

  3. adorable!
    it is hard to let go isn't it.. but you know she is going to a good home which makes it better...

    i see one did manage to snag your heart though.. have you named the calico? i can't wait to hear with a sister named edelweiss!

    so creative you...

  4. Thanks for the encouragement! You are totally right on that. This kind of lifestyle keeps it in the front of one's mind pretty well!
    I know my kids would love a kitten, but getting it over here would be a stretch. C'est la vie!

  5. I'd offer to take one of the kittens to Kirsten in France when we go but she HATES animals!!!

  6. Well, I for one totally approve of the name! Part of my e-mail address has EDELWEISS within it. My mother is from Bavaria, Germany and the edelweiss only grow high in the Bavarian Alps! These are my favorite flowers!

    So you never found a trace of the other kitty huh? I'm partial to kitties, I like them much more than dogs, it's too bad I'm allergic to them!

  7. That kitten is so adorable! The kids are so lucky to be able to watch the litter grow up--what a special gift!


Awaiting your words......
