Hubby Will Never, Ever...

...let us come back to Grand Forks on vacation. Ever again.

Three years ago when we were here for a few days of shopping, we passed by the "Pets-R-Inn" store in the Columbia Mall. Big mistake. There through the shop's front window, we fell in love with a little black kitten in a matter of seconds.

Needless to say, "Dakotah" soon joined our family, along with our other cat Sheba and our dog Casey.

So when we came back to North Dakota this year for another shopping vacation, the first words out of hubby's mouth was "And NO more cats!"

Daughter and I laughed.... of course not! We were there to get her some back-to-school clothes and a few goodies we can't get in Canada. We weren't there for more pets! What a silly thing to say!

Ummmm... until we made the mistake to yet again pass by the "Pets-R-Inn" store.

Say hello to our third (yes, THIRD) cat "Tawnee":

8 week old Rag-Doll cross kitten Tawnee

What a darling new addition to your family.

Kittens or puppies under 3 months can be brought over the border without documentation (and are duty-free). She is just 8 weeks old. The pet store gave us documents as well, showing she has all her shots, etc. She is adorable; a seal-point Ragdoll... my favorite type of cat for years, but we couldn't afford a $800 pure-bred. This little darling was only $99 as her mommy was a pure-bred, but daddy wasn't. Daughter named her Tawnee last night.

And yes, we discussed it with hubby before we made a final decision; the store gave us time with her and held her for us while we left the shop so we could decide as a family. (Which was great as there were other customers who also wanted her). When we returned, we paid for her, some kitten food a tiny collar and her own dish.

They even kept her overnight since our hotel doesn't accept pets; we are picking her up in a few hours to take her home to Canada!

That is more than adorable and absolutely irresistible. I would have done the same thing too and I already have three cats and a dog.
