Our Hearts & Home Have Expanded By 4 feet!! Meet Oliver (aka Ollie)
Sunday, July 22, 2012
It happened on a whim but we couldn't be more in love with him!! We've been promising the kiddos a pet for a couple of years now...we actually had a sweet pomeranian, Teddy, early in our marriage until Hayden was just one year old but ended up having to give him to a friend because he needed more attention than I could give him with a baby and working full time. Now that the kids aren't babies we've been promising a puppy soon. This would really be their 1st pet since Hayden can only remember Teddy thru photos. One stipulation I have though is that we replace the carpets with hardwoods before bringing a puppy into the home because I am not doing house training with carpet again. We are planning to make this change next year. However, I grew up with a kitty and have always been a cat lover so on a whim late Tuesday night I started looking up ragdoll breeders online "just to see". I've always admired the sweet, sociable and gentle nature of Ragdoll kitties and figured they'd be a great fit for our family. Within 18 hours of my "idea" my husband (who is NOT a cat person) was on board and we found, visited and brought home our new kitty! Crazy, I know!! We have named him Oliver, for his olive-green eyes, and he is a solid bi-color ragdoll. He is incredibly sweet natured and loves to be petted and played with. He and I have already formed a special bond and I enjoy our snuggle time very much! My husband is already admitting that he may just change his mind about cats! The kids, of course, are in love too!! Here are a few photos to introduce him. I am sure you will see many more photos of him along the way!
