Boo Boo has arrived!

Tonight, we got to come home to our new kitty! Colleen dropped her off in our bathroom this afternoon, so Roxanne got to go and see her as soon as we walked in. She LOVES Boo Boo. She has been snuggling her, and bringing her toys and giving her treats, etc. etc. Poor Boo Boo is probably totally overwhelmed, but she has been totally sweet and tolerant. As you can see, she sat in Roxanne's lap with no problems, and tolerated Roxanne smothering her with hugs. She did shake her tail a little at one point, so I tried to have Roxanne give her some space, but she's just been purring and snuggling. Poor Justin and his allergies will have some suffering for a couple of weeks, but then we will be letting Boo Boo out from time to time (most likely).

Oh, and here are some of my favorite Roxanne+Boo Boo moments.

*The first thing Roxanne said about Boo Boo when she saw her tonight was that Boo Boo had a costume on her nose. She was talking about the black stripe I think, and equating it with the black nose we painted on her for her Halloween costume. I know that seems like a stretch, but that is so how she is. I guess how lots of toddlers are. Connections are made and pop back up at the strangest times...
*She really wanted Boo Boo to sit on her lap, since the the first time we met Boo Boo (when she was still a barn cat) she sat in Roxanne's lap. One of her favorite things to talk about in the time we've been waiting for Boo Boo to arrive is how Boo Boo sits in her lap. So yes, the first thing she wanted to do tonight was have Boo Boo sit in her lap.
*She brought Boo Boo about fifty Kinex, which is a really big deal, since she LOVES walking around and clutching them. She even gave Boo Boo one of the highly coveted "little tiny baby pink Kinex." Whoa. Stop the presses.

So yes, I'm in love with her already, and Justin even admits that she is very very cute. She's just a little love. Snuggly and purring all the time. Here's to many happy years with Boo Boo!
