elcome to the latest addition to our family, Ku'uipo! She was brought home from our local Humane Society this afternoon. Ku'uipo is eight months old and has spent most of that time at the shelter. Her name is "sweetheart" in Hawaiian, and so far she has lived up to her moniker.

All of this fuss over a cat may seem strange to some, but Makoa (Ku'uipo's housemate) truly helped to raise our spirits when they were lowest. The effect that a friendly animal can have on the psyche is truly amazing. Much of the recent uplift in my own mentality can be attributed to having Makoa back in the house (our oncologist had us put him in "foster care" while Hubby's blood cell counts were very low).

Please join me in welcoming Ku'uipo to our family.

Congrats! What a beautiful cat! I love her colouring and her green eyes!

Enjoy your time with her, and welcome back to Makoa too!

Welcome Ku'uiopo! Cats are the best. Just the right thing when you're feeling down or just need a hug.

What a cutie!
We are really "dog people", but yes, animals are good therapy and they love unconditionally. They also do silly things that are so entertaining and make us laugh.
I really think animals are put here to teach us certain basic things about life.

Sweetie pie... (the cat...*grin*)

I have three cats and a dog and although they do drive me mad I love them to bits as well... Well, until they throw up and it is always the morning of chemo... Grrrr...but they don't know..or do they?
