Mickey....or Nim....or, yes, Mickey!

We adopted a cat from our great friend Diann. She had too many cats running around her house and asked if we wanted to take home "Fluffy" for the kids. I said yes, on a trial basis, knowing that my family has never been huge cat fans and I wasn't sure how the cat would do in our house. You see, we already have two outdoor cats, but Sierra really wanted an indoor cat. Someone she could sleep with, watch tv with, and play with. So, "Fluffy" came home with me.

He has turned out to be the BEST cat ever. Who knew?

We have gone thru a few names in trying to find the best name for him. "Fluffy" just didn't fit his personality. We tried out "Rocky", but we already have a goat with that name, so it didn't last either. We finally settled on "Mickey". I playfully call him "Mickey Mouse".

Gordon and Brad are early risers. They get up in the wee hours of the morning, so they spend a lot of play time with "Mickey". He is quite the character in the mornings. Gordon and Brad have lovingly given him the nickname "Nim" (as is Nimrod).

He is a great addition to our family and we have been having a lot of fun with him.
