Blogging friends, meet the newest member of our family, Anya:




(Photographing this little girl has been quite the challenge, but a very fun one.)

We are just ecstatic to have Anya. I've never really had a pet (unless you count fish and hamsters that bite... I don't). So she is kind of a dream come true for me. And Scott adores her.

We named her Anastasia, but we'll mostly call her Anya, for short. Do you SEE those beautiful blue eyes?! We like to say she got those from me along with her white fur (my white skin, haha) and Scott gave her the brown splotches. In some ways, it really will be similar to having our own baby. I'm super overprotective of her and paranoid that she'll get hurt or something. And she'll only be a kitten for so long. Then she'll have to grow up! It's going to be a glorious adventure.

Basically, we are in love with being sweet Anya's parents.

Happy Monday!

Ooo, it is exactly like having a human baby! I am the same way, I just got a new coffee table and I'm convinced they're going to fall and crack their heads open on it (pretty sure I've heard every mom say that at some point)
She is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Those eyes!!! Ahh! What a beautiful addition to your wonderful family!! Enjoy the kitten in her, you're right when you say it doesn't last forever!!

Congrats on your fur baby! We are getting a second one, a girl, in October, and I am totally stressing over how Hobie will react to a baby sister and if this will mess up our dynamic. They are just like our children!!

Fellow redhead who just found your blog. =)

Lemme just say.. CUTE KITTY! I WANT!

I have a kitty who is part Siamese (or Snowshoe Siamese, I'm not sure). They're sweeties! Cuddle yours for me. :)
