Polydactyl....not to be confused with Teradactyl...

Okay, so I would like to introduce the newest member of the household....Lani!! A couple weeks ago I was teaching dance in the studio. When we finished class, we sat down and chatted for a bit, and all the sudden a mouse goes zooming across the floor like this....ZOOOOOOM!!! (I know...the sound effects astound me as well!!) It was crazy!! We shrieked and started putting our feet up on the chairs like we were elephants or something!! Who knew that people are just as spooked by mice??!!!



Well, I thought it was sick! But not as sick as those disgusting mouse traps that snap the mouse guts all over the place. Just what I would want to find...Blazer getting into a mouse trap with a dead mouse in it....NO THANKS...I choose the throne of death and stench!!!!! Not only that...all I could envision even if he didn't get into it was blood and guts on my studio floor!! SOOOOOO....I opted to get a sweet little fur ball instead. A widdle tiddy tat!!! Like I said, her name is Lani, and she is a polydactyl!! What does that mean you ask?? (insert anxious enthusiasm here) Well, she has extra toes on her front two feet...fifteen total!! So cute!! Looks like she has thumbs! She was also the runt, her mama didn't seem to want her! Crazy momma...she is really so sweet, and so patient with our kids...As you will soon see!! It took a bit for our giant of a dog to realize that she wasn't big enough to play, and now they are great friends. He lets her play with his tail, and they are getting along great!! As my brother said, now we have the biggest dog imaginable, and the smallest cat...HAHA!! And as I told him...We LOVE randomness!!



We just love this little kitty!! See??










And so does Blazer....SEE??!!!!






Yes...we are having some problems with the baby. He thinks she is like a real live stuffed animal. He grabs her, picks her up (generally by the neck) and when we come running saying "no no" he quickly chucks her onto the floor and laughs....!! Poor kitty!! He really does love her, he just doesn't get it...he is only 14 months!! Sigh...hopefully she will live long enough to kill that mouse of ours!!

I don't even like cats, but she is so cute!

That's just not right. A cat shouldn't have that many toes. By the way, I don't think your adorable little kitten is going to catch a mouse yet. I just hope your mouse isn't expecting....

I hate mice. Phobic, actually. Allergic to cats too. Figured out the perfect solution, stray cat adopts hay shed and resides permanently living solely on the mice it catches. Hmmm...

Oh me want! me want!

Now my husband is going to be mad at you because I'm going home right now to beg for another kitty!

LOL it's so hard for them to understand how to be soft!!! She is adorable but I have never heard of that poly....thing! Better to catch a mouse with!

I've never enjoyed watching someone eat a strawberry so much.

That is one adorable kitty! He'd just better learn to run away faster to save his own life!
