We started our summer break off in Wimberley!  Trent and Trevor came to help us at Market Days.

We were quite the full house with 2 adults, 2 teenagers, 3 kids and two dogs.

Saturday morning a vendor found two tiny kittens snuggled on her merchandise.  We quickly scooped them up and took care of them. Since there was no sign of the mother, we had to decide what to do with them. 

Since Eric loves cats and Lauren has been obsessed with cats since birth, we decided to get them some kitten milk and tiny bottles while we tried to find the mom.

They were so tiny!  We guess they were 2 1/2 weeks old.

 After looking for the mom for a day and a half, we decided to keep them.  We figured we could give them a happier life than being a feral cat.  We actually saw a bobcat and a fox at Market Days and that sealed the deal for me!  The kids named them Wimber and Summer.  Wimber for Wimberley and Summer since we found them the first week of Summer.

Lauren said "I wished on every star for a kitten and it finally came true!".

Ethan was happy too.

The kitties will be outdoor cats.  When they were tiny, we kept them in a cage when we weren't playing with them or feeding them.  Now they roam in the garage when we aren't home and play with us in the backyard when we are.  Since we live on a greenbelt, we will put them in the garage each night to keep them safe.

We bottle fed them for 5 weeks!

We were worried about how Sadie would be with them, but she has been amazing!  She's a great mom!

Roxy loves to play with them.

While I was at work one day, Eric and the kids made little boxes for them to play in.  They loved it!

Best summer entertainment ever!

We sure love our little kitties!
