Baby Franklin

Franklin, our BIG baby, is a mainecoon cat. He was born on January 19th, 2015. And he is a real heartthrob <3!

We got Franklin from Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery, in the Greater Philadelphia area. I cannot say enough about how great Bellacoons Mainecoon Cattery is, and have recommended them countless times, to families interested in Mainecoons.

Franklin was a bit of a surprise for Fred and Lilly, but also to Lee. I have always wanted a big fluffy mainecoon of my own, and felt like it was the right time for us as a family. Fred and Lilly have always gotten along fantastically, so I was hesitant to add a 3rd cat to the mix. I did look at rescues in the area for months, before deciding that a kitten was the best thing to do. (A local rescue that I visited, Last Chance Ranch, in Quakertown, PA, is a wonderful organization, and if you are looking to add any kind of furry, feathery, or scaley animal to your family, check them out!)

OMG Franklin’s little face and big eyes!

Franklin has turned in a sweet and spoiled maniac, just like Lilly and Fredrick!

Dapper Franklin

We couldn’t imagine not having Franklin in our lives, he is a confident, affectionate boy, and makes everyday brighter! Making the decision to bring another cat into an established family unit is a big one. Cats are not like people or even dogs, they do NOT like change, and have to be introduced to each other very CAREFULLY. While kittens are super fun and cute, please think about adopting an equally fun and squeal worthy adult cat!

Fredrick & Lilly are sending their Grammy in Ireland, an extra special Birthday Surprise!!!

After many months of short bouts of feverish editing, followed by even longer bouts of procrastination, I have finished the kittens first book. While not likely to win a Pulitzer prize, I am proud of the results.

I used a Groupon I purchased back in June. It was a perfect find since I was in the process of making the book when I got the email. I ended up paying $10 for the Groupon, and then had to pay the shipping.

There are some new pictures that have not yet been posted yet, so enjoy!!!!

FrednLilly go to the Vet

Well, it had to happen. The little babies were fixed last Tuesday. They were not too pleased about the situation, and even less happy about the cones they had to wear to keep them from licking.

We brought them to the Quakertown Veterinary Clinic. We are sooooo lucky that they are close by, they are a great place to take your animals in the Lehigh Valley. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a vet. They take amazing care of the Fred and Lilly, and are open 24 hours, for any late night emergencies. As part of the spaying/neutering the kittens had to stay overnight at the vet.

Once we brought them home, we had to somehow try and keep their activity level down. Instead of using our regular Fresh Step litter, we had to use shredded newspaper so that the litter would not get into with paws. You can also use natural paper litter, but day old newspaper is free! They were also confined to the downstairs bathroom and craft room in an attempt to limit their activity.

Fred was unquestionably, worse with licking than Lilly was. Any chance he got he would lick away…..Typical Fred!

It’s so crazy how scared Lilly was when we first brought her home. Now she is the biggest cuddle bug and loves to be around us!
