New Addition to the Family

For those of you who have been following this blog for some time, you will remember Alvin, one of my cats. I posted about him here, here and here. This past week we had to put him down. It was a very very hard thing to do. But, I had no choice, there was nothing the vet could do for him.

Three weeks ago when I took Alvin to the groomer, I fell in love with a rescue kitty. After Alvin's passing, I called the groomer to see if she still had him......and the answer was yes! We couldn't believe that she still had this little guy! I guess it was meant to be!

Welcome Nunzio!
He was named by "The Italian"

Here he is in the cage before we brought him home.
 
Little Nunzio half asleep.

This is the only time you can get a picture of him!
He is one active little fellow!

  6. Your new kitty is adorable. So glad your back. I was wondering what had happened when you weren't posting. I understand that life just takes over and we have to step away from the blog. Looking forward to future posts.

  9. Well good news and bad news! So hard to part with a longtime, faithful friend. And a new resident with the name of Nunzio. I have a cousin named Nunzio...but then probably every Italian has a cousin named Nunzio. BTW...We had The Italian's famous rub on a steak last night.

    1. Patricia, Yes, it was very hard to part with Alvin. The Italian is happy to know that you are enjoying his rub! BTW, he always loved the name Nunzio but never knew anyone with that name.

  13. I'm late commenting, just catching up on my blog reading today. I'm so so sorry for the loss of Alvin. But what a wonderful life you gave him.

    And now you have little Nunzio to keep you company and he too will have a wonderful life ahead of him. He's resting up now for all the future adventures! :-)
