Motherhood kind of sucks

It's 2:30 in the morning and I am exhausted. Why? Because the newest addition to our household thinks I'm her mother. And needs me to show her where everything is. Hungry? Let's mew in Dana's ear. Have to go to the bathroom? Another mew. Don't want to sleep right now? Well, that's an exceptionally loud mew.

Right now she is running around like a furry top on speed.

Eddy seems to be coming around. At first there was a lot of hissing and the paw of justice came out a lot. But now he seems to be getting used to her. Last night he even laid in front of her and was "flippy kitty" (rolling back and forth on his back). What's a lot of fun is watching this little tiny ball of gray and white (and some tan) fur chase this gigantic cat down the hallway.

Anyway, we took her to the vet on Friday and, in case you did not guess, it's a girl. Pink bubble gum cigars to all of you (if I had pink bubble gum cigars, of course).

After a lot of decisions (she was Isis for about two hours), we decided on Kalypso (Melissa, it was funny to see you mentioned that as a possibility). Kalypso Jane Gray to be exact. Kalli for short. Or Little Miss Trouble. Or 3wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Get off the keyboard, cat! Or Shut up! Or Not the toes! Leave the toes alone!
But she is adorable. Take a look.

On the way to Kari's after first picking her up (she discovered the camera cord).

Causing a ton of trouble when she knocked every single remote down.

Right before she decided the newest place to hang out was the computer.

You should see her attacking the cursor. That is hilarious.

And she is exhausted after running around causing trouble.

It's 2:50. Hopefully she's ready to sleep now. Doubt it but worth a shot.
