2S4U & CPS...

For starters I wanted to show you my sweet little baby girl. I didn't post about it here, but some of you know that the puppy did not work out. :( He was not happy with the kids, and our boys were REALLY not happy with him. In the end he now lives with a childless couple just a few minutes from us. So I can't be sad about it, even though I really loved him and grew quite attached in the time he was with us.

I needed to mend my broken heart and we decided to expand our feline family. :) She, is here to stay!
Meet my little Phaedra/Faydra! (Spelling is up in the air still... hehe) I'll post some better pictures of her soon. We went to actually adopt an older male, but he had quite a few problems and as a stray we didn't know how friendly he would have been towards the boys.
But her tiny little meowing won us over when we saw her at the shelter....



She would spend her whole day in my shirt like that if I let her!
In a perfect world she will be my future lap warmer for when I'm in my craft corner. But I'm sure I'll love her either way ;)

Here is my CPS sketch! Loved how it was on an angle!! :)
