Purr-fectly Ready!

Deuteronomy as a kitten
        For this post, we thought we'd introduce you to another member of our family- our cat, Deuteronomy.  Deuteronomy was born a barn cat in rural Kentucky.  He was the runt of the litter, but soon made up for lost time as you can see by the pictures.  He was given to us by our friends eleven years ago and has been part of our family ever since.

     Deuteronomy is actually the second name we gave him.  For the first three months of his life, he was Melody.  It's embarrassing to admit, but yes, we thought he was a girl...until we took him to the vet for his first check-up.  Not wanting him to suffer from an identity crisis, we quickly renamed him after Broadway's king of cats- Old Deuteronomy.

      Deuteronomy has lived in four states, five apartments, and adapted to many new situations.  He is a very mellow cat and very affectionate.   He has been around lots of kids and will make a great furry companion.  We have no doubt that he is "purr-fectly" ready to welcome a baby into our lives.

      Jim and I both love animals and grew up with pets in our families.  We look forward to introducing Deuteronomy to our baby and to being a part of the many fun memories they will share.  We also envision adding a few more furry friends to the mix as our child grows older...maybe a family dog:)
