a new addition...

Welcome Gertie to our family! Mick and I finally got the kitten we had been searching for. After all our frustration and failed attempts, today was the day. It was fate. I called the SFSPCA in the morning, and they let us know that there were a few kittens in that day, so we raced over the bridge and fell in love right away. She was perfect. Her name was Ruby. There were a few there with jewel names, but the one that was available was her. The kitten had to be ours. Ruby said so.

She is playful, cuddles in our arms and falls asleep, and already has let Brody know how she feels. That will take a few days of assimilation, but I think that they will be fast friends.

We will be calling her Gertie (Gertrude), but Ruby will always be a part of who she is.


  1. I cant speak for you, but i got a rush when i was told her name was Ruby....

    It felt amazingly right, and super serendipitous.

  2. So cute! Look at that little spotted belly!

  3. Man, she's super adorable. And looks good in a 'stache. :)
