Our New Addition

It's a Girl...at least for now!  Our kitty's name is Coconut, but we call her Coco.  The vet can't tell if it's a boy so for now Coco is a girl. 

Eric and I "rescued" Coco from the local market where someone dropped her and her siblings at the side of the road to fend for themselves.  A vendor there found her and took care of her until we adopted her.  We carried her home from the market in an orange box and welcomed her to her new palace, fit with litter box, toys and all the food she can eat.  A true rags to riches story.

Coco is 8 weeks old and weighs 1kg or 2.2 lbs!  She thinks I'm her mom and enjoys making "biscuits" on me and trying to suck on my finger.  She loves to play with anything that has feathers!  And for the most part has been a good little kitty.  She even has her own room!  Everyday she settles in more and get's more playful.  She is turning into a crazy kitty now that she is more comfortable.  She loves to play and run and bite.  She has even shown us a few of her crazy good Malaysian soccer skills, La Liga watch out!  Luckily she is not climbing the curtains yet...


  1. Cute! She looks a lot like our cat, Zeke. But Zeke is 6 months old and 7 lbs, so I think Coco will be a bit smaller than him. Apparently Eric was giving Jeb crap about us getting a cat a few weeks ago though ;-) Glad you guys will have a pet to keep you company there!!

  2. Mrrrooow. :-) I bet Zeke would like to come visit and play with Coco. They could play "soccer" together with toys that jingle. Although, I think Zeke might be a little better at WWF wrestling with his jingle opossum.
