Meet Maybelle...

As you know may or may not know, we had Brewster for 20 years. We are a cat and dog family, we have had a huge part missing...and as of yesterday we now have a rambunctious very lovable, who kisses and kisses and kisses us, new family member! Here are the first photos, she kept wrestling my camera strap, so I couldn't get a good photo, then Sierra held her.

She is recently spayed and up to date on everything, and very healthy. Saved from the grip of death at the shelter. She is approx. 2 years old. 

We were deciding on a name for her, and the girls both agreed "MAY" is good due to her Birthday with us, and she is from Virginia, so a southern "BELLE". So what better name than MAYBELLE! And of course the most famous Maybelle is from Virginia, MOTHER MAYBELLE CARTER.

If you are considering adding a new pet to your family, there are so many options, the Franklin County Humane Society/Planned Pethood and also where we got Maybelle: The Roanoke SPCA right next door to the county animal shelter, here is their link.

We went looking at a different cat, and of course Maybelle  won our hearts. We said we would all need to agree "On the one" and she was the one!

UPDATE:
Less than a week and Maybelle is still doin' great. She is into everything, we had forgotten what a young cat was like! She is a lot of fun.

So while she is learning the ropes here at The Claiborne House B&B of Virginia, she probably won't be allowed in the guest areas due to guest allergies, but she may make an appearance on the B&B stage once in a while.

"KEEP ON THE SUNNY SIDE..."
