Call me the "Crazy Cat Lady"

I swore after my cat "Merlin" was stolen that I would not, absolutely would not, get another one. After all after my favorite cat in the whole wide world was gone we still had Snowy the children's cat, and Babycakes the family Shi Tzu. Not to mention the neighbor's cats who live here as well. The neighbors cats are all outdoor cats and arrive at my house every evening without fail to eat. I arrive home from work about one hour before the neighbor and naturally they have figured this out. So the three of those cats come inside and eat each night with our pets. Well "Lil Bit" came in one night and refused to leave. I would toss her back out the door and so help me God she would beat the door closed to come back inside. So "Lil Bit" was adopted at that moment by me. She won my heart right then and there. If she fought that hard to be with me, then I would let her stay. Now mind you, she will never take the place of my beloved Merlin but she runs a very close second.

For those that don't remember Lil Bit was the runt of this litter. Hence her name chosen by us. She is also the only one that remains from this litter. Three of the babies died and the orange kitten "Possum" was stolen at the same time Merlin was. Lil Bit was meant to be mine.

Ok, enough mush. Call me the crazy cat lady but here's the newest member of my clan.

Lil Bit is precious! I know how you felt about Merlin... I was the same about my cat Pepper that was killed by the neighbor's dogs.

No one can replace Merlin but your heart has room for more.
