Unexpected Addition: Meet "Lexi"

Well, after both of our cats (Pippin and Bea) died this year, we thought we'd probably put off getting any more pets for a little while. However, much to our surprise, a kitty found us and has decided that she lives here. lol. A little cat showed up yesterday with no tags and very skinny. She obviously needed some food and love, and since we still haven't gotten rid of Pippin's food dishes or food, we fed her and gave her some water. She has been around ever since. Even when we leave and come back home, there she is laying on our porch to greet us. She was a little nervous and skiddish at first, but now she loves to be pet and just rubs and rubs against us, taking it all in. So, I'm pretty sure we have ourselves a new pet. She is black and white, and not exactly a tiny kitten, but she's not grown yet either. She's an older kitten, I guess. We're pretty sure she's a stray, as she has no collar and is very boney/skinny (if she has an owner, they certainly were not caring for her! And we live out in the woods, so strays are more likely). Both boys were so excited to see her this morning, and she certainly needs love and care, so this is probably a good thing for everyone :) Brendan wanted us to name her, so this morning I was just randomly saying girl names outloud, and when I said "Lexi" Brendan's face lit up and he said "that's a great name for her!" So, I guess her name is Lexi.

So, anyway, apparently we are cat owners again :)

Here's a pic of her...
