Meet the newest addition to the Collins Household...



















What a cutie, right? (The kitten, not me..haha)

This lil guy was found very troubled and stuck in a ditch. My sisters friend "rescued" him in hopes of keeping him until she approached her mom and was sorely disappointed by her response. So, Ali brought him to our house in a kennel and left him on our front porch as directed by my mom. (My mom knew that if she were forced to confront the kitten that it would be very difficult not to keep him). Therefore his kennel was left outside. I, of course was not aware and heard yelps and cries from outside my window and could not resist picking him up and bringing him in from the cold! So, I brought him in. Of course we all fell in love with his sweet disposition and playful little cute self. My dad was adamant that we would take him to an animal shelter the very next day. Dad eventually went to the store and bought a collar, kitten chow and toys :) So, needless to say, we're keeping the lil tike.

We've named him Pippin. Well okay, my dad named him Pippin. (Although I did throw out the suggestion).
