It's A...

Cat!!! That's right folks, the Bowsmans have a new pet!Last Thursday, our neighbors brought a baby kitten over that they had rescued. They were unable to keep her because they have dogs, so they were looking for her a good home. Having always been a cat lover, I said that we would keep her until we found her another home. However...
Madigan and I got really attached in a very short time and didn't want to let her go to a new home. And Ted - well, Ted can't say no to Madigan! (especially when she listed our family before bed one night and it went something like this "Daddy, Mommy, Ma-igan, and Baby Ki-ee!!") These pictures speak for themselves:

They've had quite a bit of fun together the past few days, but their favorite activity is "strolling". The cat (willingly) gets in the baby stroller and Madigan pushes her around. It's hilarious!

Now our only problem is coming up with a name. Whenever we ask Madigan what she wants to name the cat, she responds "Baby Ki-ee" or "Daddy". Since both of those could get a little confusing, we're still searching. Any suggestions are welcome!!

I thought Emma already named the cat for you. Why are you asking for other options? What's wrong with . . . yellowy or jumpy kitty?

Congratulations on your new family addition! Maybe name her something cute that Madi says that you eventually want her to say correctly but always want to remember her saying. That is why we named Claire's monkey "Wuggie". ...if any of her words fit the cat well. :) Although Ki-ee would be hard to say all the time. ;)

Cute kitty! I've always been a cat lover too so I share your enthusiasm. Since Madigan is already calling her "baby," why not go with "Baby?" Not very original but whatever works! :)

SO precious! What a sweet cat to let Madigan push her around in a stroller!

Hey Ted. Your family is beautiful, and that little kitten is adorable. Good to see that you're doing well.
