Adding a Pet to Our Family: Introducing...Mocha!

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.

My husband is determined to have a cat when we move to a place that lets us have them. He grew up with cats and loves them. I am not a huge animal person, mainly because my dad would never allow them. But I do like cats, although I'm hesitant about the pet duties...

My friend has a dog named Mocha. =) Sounds like she's a great addition to the family.

I'm not a huge cat person but they are growing on me more and more and they are a great first pet because they are more independent than dog. She is beautiful!
