Frosty, the Snow Kitty

Happy Monday!  This is just a fun little post about our new kitty.  Hope it makes you smile!

We adopted Frosty from the Humane Society in St. James, MN after locating her on PetFinder.com.

Frosty the Snow Kitty

Despite already having two Himalayan cats, we “needed” another one.  Both our cats, Bruiser and Chester, were around before we had kids.  They have been great with the kids, but aren’t that thrilled about them.  The cats will let the kids carry them for short distances, but after all, they are both senior cats.  My theories on getting another cat were 1) a cat that our son could call his own and relate to might help him with his issues; 2) now with a bigger house, we could shelter another of God’s creatures who needed a home.

Our son wanted a white cat as that is his favorite color, an idea that I loved since my childhood cat was all white.  And after recently finding out that I am no longer allergic to anything (as I child I was allergic to everything – except long-hair cats), we could adopt a homeless cat no matter what kind.  I searched on PetFinder, and found only a few white kittens, this had the perfect description for our family, and her tiny dark smudges on her head give her character.  At first I only talked to the kids about maybe getting a cat, and showed them some pictures.  Both were immediately instant that we had to get Frosty!  They thought the others were cute, but Frosty was the one!

Over Thanksgiving weekend, we ventured south in our car and picked-up our newest family member.  We are so thankful for the amazing people who took so good care of her, accurately described her on-line, and continue to care for so many lives!  Thank you!

She is amazing!  Our children love her.  Both children have commented on how she is so much more approachable than the other cats.  Our daughter has claimed her as her kitty, insisting our son has to get another one.  It’s been too short a time to see how Frosty will affect them as individuals, but if any animal can, she will!

She plays and plays, loves attention, helps me and my husband whenever we are on the computer, lets the kids drag her everywhere, and has made friends with our other cats.  She also is very relaxed when I clip her claws!  She trills, rather than meows, is constantly showing us how smart she is.

Unfortunately she recently sprained a rear paw, and as she babied it, a front paw…but they have healed and she is almost back to 100%!  Perhaps she has now given up her most crazy adventures, which leads to her running into steps, misjudging distances, or just sliding across our wood floors into things.  One of her games was to jump onto the kitty tent, collapsing it on whichever other cat was inside.  I think she’ll be back to her full self soon!

Here are are a few great pictures to enjoy.   And even a little video:  Frosty on the Move
