Over the winter my kids and I saw the animated movie The Secret of Kells. One of the main characters is a white cat. We were so taken by this cat that we decided we would keep our eyes open for a white kitten up for adoption. The opportunity finally came a couple of weeks ago when we learned of a kitten in foster care that was in need of a home. We brought home the sweet little 8-week-old fellow yesterday. Even though he has been here just 24 hours, I am amazed at how comfortable we all are together, including our two other adult cats. He has won our hearts.
His name? Albus Dumbledore. We are huge Harry Potter fans and knew we wanted to use a name from the books for the kitten. The bright blue eyes, white coloring, and cleverness led us to choose the name. This name also opens up many possibilities for nicknames, which are quite popular in our family. Have you seen the trailer for the Book 7/Deathly Hallows movie? The first part is ready for release in November.
I'm just getting my bearings after returning from a couple of long trips in a short time frame. The trip to the beach was restful, with sunny weather throughout. I am looking forward to checking out posts that all my blog friends have made since I have been away from the computer. I hope all is well.
