Introducing Miss Nina Simone!

The legendary Nina Simone


Allow me to introduce the warmest, fuzziest warm fuzzy in all of existence, Miss Nina Simone, named for the best jazz singer ever to walk the earth.

The Cutest Kitten in all the Land

Husband and I rescued Nina from a last chance shelter over the weekend, and so far she’s done all manner of kittenly things, like falling off couches & running head first into walls.  I had to promise Husband that I wouldn’t become “that weirdo who only blogs about her cat,” but I think, since Nina is tiny and cute and new (the shelter estimated her age at about 8 wks), a *small* kitten-pocalypse is in order, don’t you?

Husband called Nina "Nina Burrito." She didn't like it.

she did, on the other hand, want to nom my fingers


Plus, she’s REALLY into attacking all the cardboard boxes we have yet to take to the recycling bin.  Upcycled moving boxes = killer cat toys!  })i({

    She’s too cute! LOVE the grey color 🙂 And yes, cardboard boxes and bags from the store are great cat toys! Let me give you an insight also…the best ever, FREE (sort of) cat toys are twist ties that you curl around your little pinky. Marlie would go nuts over these things and when we moved out we found them all over the house because she would bat them under everything and then we’d have to give her more 🙂 Sure do miss her!

    *So* cuddly cute! And she definitely has that Nina Simone glint in her eye. 😉 Perfect name! (Are you glad I didn’t say purrfect? Har.)

    She’s adorable! Was this a spur of the moment decision? My dog certainly was…never, ever allow yourself to wander into the mall pet store when you’re supposed to be there for spring clothes shopping. You wind up with a puppy and no spring clothes!

    I’m sort of terrified by cats, but she’s pretty cute for a vicious killer 😉

    Norah will be in love. Hunka John AND a kitty. You might have to clear a space for a Duck to move in.

    Nieces + kittens = double win.

    Lol, no, I’ve been wanting to move for 3 years because our last place didn’t allow pets. I’m surprised I waited a whole week after we moved to get her… I wanted to get her the very same day! (Clothes are overrated. Pets are a much better investment; they never go out of style!)

    Thanks! I thank you for introducing me to Nina Simone every time I listen to her!
