Scrapbook: Isobel’s First Kitten

31 Jul

Recently we were at my parents’ house for dinner and Isobel finished before the rest of us, as she usually does. Eager to run around Papa and Ama’s living room, we let her down from her seat so we could eat in peace while keeping an eye on her.

Eventually she disappeared into the laundry room and returned holding the gray and white kitten my mother was fostering. Isobel had never held a kitten before although she had dearly wanted to since she first laid eyes on one. This is the first kitten she’s ever picked up and held all by herself.

I would have thought she was too young to pick up and hold a kitten by herself but she did a great job, surprising the whole family.ย  Now she thinks she’s ready to hold any animal she comes across, including the goats at the fair.

One step at a time, kid.

    She is holding the kitten so well.
    I hope she goes on to enjoy a lifetime of loving animals.
    My mother had a pet goat that used to follow her to school.
    Not sure she ever picked it up though!
    Best wishes from another Isobel and Cat

      Hello, Isobel and Cat! What a brilliant name! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Also, I’m hella jealous of your mom’s pet goat.

      She always wants to hold huge animals, too. Like Zorro. Um, no way, kid. He’d crush you.

    She is so incredibly adorable!!! The girl, not the kitten (although the kitten is adorable, too). The girl+the kitten=me keeled over…DEAD from the exorbitant amount of cuteness being displayed!!

    Oh! She did do a great job! She looks so sweet! Soooo… getting a kitten for her any time soon? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      We got her two about a year ago. ๐Ÿ™‚ Three cats is my limit! When I was growing up, though, we had quite a bit more.
