a new addition to our family
as of 9:30 this morning, our little scoop has a baby brother!
he was a stray that was living in the apartment complex of a woman at my office. some of her friends were fostering him but could only care for him until this weekend. she talked to me about him forever and showed me pictures and videos and i just couldn't resist! we've been thinking about finding a baby brother or sister for scoop for a really long time.
you can't really tell from the picture, but he's the tiniest and scrawniest little guy in the whole world! he's about 6-8 weeks old, and he has the biggest paws and ears you've ever seen. there is a little chunk missing from one of his giant ears, which makes him look kind of like a little bat.
i want to call him batman, but i'm open to suggestions. alan and i have never been able to name a pet on the first day.
i will admit, so far scoop is not a big batman fan. i think he's a little freaked out about this tiny little intruder in his house, but i'm sure that in time scoop and batman will become the best of friends!
