Additions to the Zoo

The zoo keeps growing. For Aiden's birthday Grandma Tunie and Grandpa Ken gave Aiden these african tree frogs. They are so awesome and fun to watch. I think I've enjoyed them as much as the kids. You only feed them twice per week and change their water 1-2 times per year. How easy is THAT?? Aiden feels big having his own pet since Drew has his gerbils, I have Grayson, and Noah got his birthday kitty.

Yes, you heard right, Noah finally decided on a kitty. He obviously takes after his mother because we just could hang out at the Humane Society all day and we found multiple cats at both locations that we wanted. It was a very hard decision. I had to be good and not try to sway him towards any of my favorites. This little furry wonder won. He has been a blast in the 4 hours we've had him and so friendly. I hope that lasts. Him and Grayson have been together almost constantly and only a few hissing battles so they are starting out better than I anticipated! After MUCH deliberation, Noah decided to name him Jackson, Jack for short. (or Jackie, sorry Dad)

This was one of the better shots I could get of him. He never sits still very long!

This picture cracks me up because he was running right at me to attack my camera strap.
The two cats were just lying on either side here waiting for the other one to attack. They were playing good for awhile and then they were being stinkers.
I know I'll be taking many more pictures. I'm a sucker for cats, kittens, and pictures of them. I wonder if either of them will sleep with me tonight.......

So happy for both boys to have their very own pets... I was surprised to see that the tree frogs need that much water though.

Jackson is adorable! I'm a sucker for cats too...of course, I love most animals! ;-)

Have fun with them!

I hope everyone slept last night-and the cats didnt play all night long! Jack is so cute!

I think both your kitty's are pretty cute, but Jack will keep you in stitches for awhile with his kitten antics...enjoy and I hope he 'takes' to Noah since he is for his birthday.
