Kylo Ren

I’d like to introduce you to the best Valentine’s Day surprise I’ve ever had… Kylo Ren!

And Then There Were Six... - Kylo Ren

I met him a couple weeks ago at PetSmart when Sophie and I went to visit her foster mom, who runs the adoption events for Circle of Friends Animal Society at PetSmart on Sundays. He caught my attention because he was rambunctious and full of energy, running around and pestering all of the other cats with his antics. It made me laugh and reminded me of Caster. They seemed like they would be two peas in a pod. I mentioned him in passing to my husband, not because I thought we should get him, just because he came up when I was telling Bobby about my afternoon.On Friday, I went to visit a friend of mine for the weekend. I got home Saturday evening, and my husband told me he had a Valentine’s Day surprise for me, but that I had to find it. I looked around for a few seconds, and then in ran this little guy! I was COMPLETELY shocked and surprised, I didn’t even know what to say! I just kept smiling and laughing and asking Bobby over and over again if it was real.

And Then There Were Six... - Kylo Ren

Bobby had called Sophie’s foster mom on Saturday, and having no idea what the cat’s name was, described him to her to find out where he was and how he could get him. Rebekah told him where to go, Bobby did, and there ya have it – this adorable little guy is ours.We named him Kylo Ren, after the villain from the new Star Wars movie. Kylo Ren was my favorite character in the movie (the villains always are), and he wears all black – very fitting I think! Kylo Ren the cat has settled right in here already, and everyone seems to like him. As when I first met him, he runs around the house and pounces on everyone. It’s adorable. It’s been so long since we had a kitten in the house (Sampson was the last kitten we had) – I forgot what it was like to have that kitten energy running around. So much fun.

​I hope you all will enjoy watching this little guy grow up with us. I know I will!

    He is absolutely beautiful! His fur and eyes are really stunning. Congrats on the new addition. We only have three cats right now, but about five years ago we had six, too.

      He kept his distance until last night. They two of them spent a good while chasing each other and wrestling, and Caster showed Kylo Ren his wall climbing move. I think the two of them are going to be great friends for sure!

    He is adorable!! And a lucky kitty. A perfect Valentine’s gift indeed. Nearly the same thing happened to me. I was interested in a ginger boy at the county shelter, but my husband thought we had enough. Then he called me at work last Wednesday to suggest that as a Valentine’s gift to each other, we go adopt him. I wrote about our new addition on my blog today. 🙂

    Kylo Ren is adorable. That is the best gift ever 🙂 And your husband sounds like a sweetheart, mine would never get me a cat. I had to fight for every cat I brought in.

    We all love him already. His mouth looks just like Astrid’s. Kittens really are lots of fun, and we hope he and all the other kitties become BFsF. Mom is super jealous that you now have a black panfur. We and mom and dad send lots of love to everyone. Astrid sends a kiss to Sampy for every black cat in the world, past, present and future.
