Introducing Pippin

Last week my wife sent me a photo SMS of a frazzled kitten and asked, “Do you want another cat?”

Sure, why not.

So we got a new cat and he’s cute as heck. It’s been a few years now since we’ve had a kitten in the house and it’s a lot of fun (and a lot of work, but he does that cute kitten face and wins every time). The kitten is extremely curious and active, which is cool. He’s also learned to use his litterbox quite well, except for a couple of times when he’s peed in his playcube. We originally named him Oliver, but there was something about it that wasn’t right; cute as name as that is, he just wasn’t an Oliver. Last night, after really getting to know him, and seeing all his quirks (like the fact he likes beer, a lot!), his real name came to us: Pippin, or Pip for short (which can stand for a shorter form of Pippin, or for Pipsqueek, cause he squeaks a lot). So, here’s our new feline baby.
