Before you get to know the latest family member, let me give you a little back story. If you don't know, I had a pet cat named Twinkie who passed away in April 2016. He was definitely a cool cat, and since then, I haven't had another pet. It took me a while before I felt ready for another little buddy, and then when I finally did feel ready, there were some road blocks...

But now, I 'm happy to introduce you to the latest member of the Wittle Family: Memphis Matthews!

I went to the Humane Society Thursday with my hubby intending to meet a doggo we saw. Sadly, it was not a match with the doggo. But before leaving, I made a stop in the Cat area and came upon Memphis! As soon as I sat down in the room, she jumped on my shoulders, gave me a head butt, and purred non-stop. She's one of the most affectionate and unique cats I've ever met. We adopted her on the spot.

I was pretty surprised we adopted a cat that day, but he told me, "Kristen, no one who saw your face when you were with that cat would have let you leave here without her."

I'd love to see your furry Wittle Family members! If you share a photo on the WITL Facebook page, maybe I'll feature it on the website!
