A Rumbly Resuce

The new addition
 Meet the newest addition to our family.  We could not be more happy or excited to have him become part of our lives.  His name is Rumble Belly or Rumbly.  Why such a name?  Well, this kitty purrs like he has swallowed a V-10 engine. It is fantastic.  Also, he came to us weighing around 15 lbs.

This summer we searched all the rescue shelters looking for our new pet.  Then we saw this guy up in the very top cage at the West Olive Humane Society.   I think it was love at first sight.  We spent some time with him at the shelter and he did great with the kids.  He is 5yrs. old and a mellow jello kind of guy.

Rumble Belly - Indeed

It was a good experience for all of us. The folks at the humane society were so nice and very helpful.  It tugged at your heart to see all these animals in need of good homes.  It was a great opportunity to talk to the boys about responsibility and loving your pet for the rest of its life.  It is hard thing to wrap your head around for an adult let alone a child.  However, happy faces prevailed when we found our "brother".

So welcome to your new home Rumbly! We are so happy you are here.

Katie!! I love the kitty. You know B is just beside himself about kitties. Embarrassingly so. Things haven't been the same without our little Dutch, but my heart swells none the less for all kitties... especially shelter kitties. You guys definitely get extra stars on your crown!

I love that your boys are loving a kitty!
