A New Additon.


Blythe here and I've got some big news for the blog! BIG NEWS! Over the weekend Nick and I welcomed a new addition to our family...

A kitty!!! We named him Ernie. He is seven years old, a redhead like me, and real charmer. Did I mention he weighs 14 pounds? And that it took him all of 5 seconds to feel completely at home in our place?! Nick is the real the cat lover in our house (and has wanted one for years), but I am quickly learning how much an additional heartbeat can make a place feel even more like home.

Can Atticus give Ernie any advice on how to be a kitty on a blog? 


PS: We named Ernie after Ernie of course (absolutely love that laugh track). Here is my favorite Sesame clip of all time. And it is my first memory of my life. I think. Enjoy:


  1. Aww! He looks so at home already! But wait... is he on my bed? :)

  2. hahah! yes he is at home already. no hiding for this guy! He loves to sit in the window sill behind the daybed and watch the city! so not technically on your bed, but close!

  3. i came across your blog via your post about grey on apartment therapy. well done. i'm also a huge fan of grey walls and white bedding. great light in your bedroom.

    your cat is precious. kudios to you for adopting an adult cat! i have an approximately 12 year old male "red" just like ernie! i think he was abandoned by his owner. he ways 16-17 pounds!

    orange cats are the best. he's a lucky dude.

    1. Hi Rebecca,

      Thank you so much for stopping by! The video was a lot of fun. Your kitty sounds JUST like Ernie! Yes, we wanted an older cat since they seem to be less adopted. Also, its been fun learning his old habits. I agree -- orange cats are SO great!

      So glad you like the blog!
