pesto is our new kitty friend. she fits in quite well around here, driving me a bit crazy on occasion but that's not really anything out of the ordinary :) she likes to sleep in my plants and she loves the kids... especially the little one, which i find surprising since eislee loves to pull poor pesto's tail. her name came from matt who said "we should name her pesto because she's kind of a pest." i thought that was pretty funny but wasn't planning on using it as a name until everyone started calling her pesto and... well... that's that. she has caused some problems of course, jumping up on the table and getting into food, knocking over a special hand painted glass of mine made by a close friend (i was tempted to find her a new home after that one), and of course eislee found the cat litter box and thought that it was her own personal sand box (cringe)... but... things are beginning to work... kitty is learning to stay off the table... and she is also adapting quite well to "potty shifts" the guest bathroom has the litter box and i keep that door shut now, pesto gets a 10 minute potty visit every couple hours and she's doing great with that! luckily.
