The Messy Bed Shoot

Our cat Shadow died when she was 18. She died the year before Katrina. I always said that if we were to get another cat, it would find us.

Meet Kitty Kitty Bang Bang.

Kitty Kitty Bang Bang


We were at the vet with Cholo (routine stuff). They have a section with rescue cats for adoption. While I was paying the bill, Alberto was cruising the kitty cats, and he was very impressed with the one and only cat left. She was very social, flirting her way into his heart.

The manager came over and opened the cage, and said she didn't know if the little black and white kitty with white socks and a bob tail was dog friendly. She said she loved kids. Well it was love at first sight for Kitty and Cholo.

Cholo loves her


We hesitated, saying we would think abut it. But Cholo would not leave the glass partition where Kitty Kitty Bang continued to play with him. We had never seen Cholo so engaged with anything.

So daddy got Cholo the best plaything he has ever had.


We all feel so young and happy thanks to Kitty Kitty Bang Bang.

Here are my models for the messy bed photo shoot. I asked your advice HERE


Don't you think The Selby will surely eat his heart out?

Oh...how cute! Cholo got a new friend. I love it when dogs and cats love each other. I used to have a cat that my dogs loved. She wasn't that crazy about them but she tolerated them. Growing up I had a little female dachshund and a big orange male cat that grew up together. They LOVED each other. They would walk around the yard with their little heads pressed together. It was inter species love for sure.

Kitty Kitty Bang Bang is sooooo cute!!!!! Congratulations!

*squeak* Your Kitty looks just like my Bella! Bella loooooves our Golden Retriever, but sadly, he is unimpressed with her charms. (Oh, it's so sad. She lays down next to him and rolls around...rubbing her had on his paws. He just looks at her like "Go away, already." Oddly, he is the only animal she likes out of the 7 we have.)

AWWWWW! I just love your new addition and I love the name too. Growing up I had a white German Shepard who allowed our cat to lay on his back while they both sunbathed on the porch! Cutest thing ever. Can't wait for more stories about your babies.

my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you said...
