Welcome Mac!

Hello!  I'm loving the change of seasons here in Tennessee.  Sorry I haven't much in the way of art or craft to share; I'm working on projects but just not things I can share right now. 

What I can share is this beautiful ball of fur...Mac.  I had a sweet cat many years ago that reminds me of Mac but I didn't think I'd ever have another cat.  Why?  My seventeen year old daugher has always had an intense fear of all animals and so it was just a given that we would be a pet-free home.  Over the years we attempted to help her overcome her fears: therapy, trips to the pet store, we even attended several weeks of dog obedience classes in order to expose her to animals.  She did hold a puppy once but the whole experience backfired when the mama dog got loose and came for her baby...actually I think that probably made the fear worse. 

Now..meet Mac.  Mac the little miracle maker.


Why this little guy found favor with Clarissa's heart...I don't know but I am thankful.  She has no fear of him.  That in itself is a miracle.  Mac's been with us since Thursday.  We were actually going to babysit him for my son and look for a home for him at the same time  My son rescued Mac from a parking lot a little over a week ago and fed him and loved him back to health.  We had no clue that Mac would become a part of OUR family.  Clarissa decided on Thursday night that we wouldn't be finding Mac a home; he'd be staying right here.  Now that's a miracle.

What an adorable little baby! And an awesome story.

And yes, Tennessee has been having the most amazing weather. We have been staying outside as much as possible.

What a great story. I am so happy for your family and for Mac. Mac looks a lot like my Sadie, a rescued cat also. I just know your daughter will give Mac lots of love and attention. Cudos to your son for the rescue. What a sweet thing for him to do.
