Exactly one month ago, we welcomed a beautiful addition to our family. She's a year old already, and her name is Mocha.
Though I was a little reluctant to have another body in the house to feed and care for, she's been a good fit for our family. As a young girl, I always wished for a cat of my own; as an adult I thought a pet would cost more money and energy than it was worth. I was wrong about that. My husband, who grew up with pets, knew she would be good for the kids. Though I won't ever be sending her to a pet spa, we're very glad she's become a part of our home and family.
