Just call me the cat lady : P

So, on this day of 09/09/09, I became a mommy! Yes, I said a mommy.

The story goes:

Taking my first graders outside for recess. As we are crossing the parking lot and heading to the playground, I looked at the end of my line and there following us is a charcoal gray kitty. She is teee tiny, but her tummy was bulging out and she was obviously preggers.

Ya see, I have a soft spot for animals. Truth be told, I was undecided on a major in college for two years, because I couldn't decide between Teacher or Vet.

I digress...said kitty strolls in between my students, all the while purring happily and wanting a little pat on her head. I stroked her coat and felt how TRULY preggers she is and it is breaking my heart. She has been seen around our school for a week now. Today it was in the upper 80's with lots of humidity. She was panting. HARD! So, I had a fellow teacher watch my kids and I take the kitten in my room and into my bathroom and gave her a bowl of water and let her cool off. Then I went to go and get my kids. When we got back into the room and I opened the bathroom door, said kitten was sound asleep. Poor baby!

Sooo, I call my mom, seeking motherly advice. She sighed and said, "I am on my way".

I am now the mommy to a very pregnant, little, unwed girl!

Her name is Neely ( part of my school's name ).

I'll keep you updated on my grandbabies ... lol! Seriously, if anyone lives in the TN. area, you can call dibs on a precious furbaby :)
