My Little Munchkin

I have been adopted by a cat!


Her name is Munchkin and she is 3 months old. I found her at Lollipop Farm, the Rochester area Humane Society shelter. I ♥ her so much!! I had about a dozen names picked out for when I got a cat but when she crawled on my lap and into my heart at the shelter somehow the name Munchkin came to me and I went with it. It really suits her- now. I imagine when she’s full grown it will be a bit of a joke ;)

She is settling right in to my apartment, walking around like she owns the place and playing with random things like power cords and tiny little pieces of fluff and freaking me out by cramming herself into the tiniest spaces possible (where I can’t find her) then falling asleep.


She is also a very loving little lap kitty, and even though I’ve only had her since about 6pm tonight my lap seems to be her favorite place to sleep :) I am glad. I love lap cats and none of the cats I’ve lived with in the past have really been lap cats.


She’s also not afraid to express herself ;) She actually fell asleep like this! I was laughing so hysterically I woke her up.

I love, love, love my new friend :)


  1. How awesome to be chosen by such a cutie! Her name seems to fit her for now. Have fun.

  2. Wow, Jennie, she's really taken to you and is so relaxed. My experience with adopting kitties is they're very skitterish at first and take a bit of time to warm up. Congrats and good luck with the little Munchkin!

  3. Since you've been gone, Lucky and I have become BFFs. Don't think that I won't be notifying her of your "little indiscretion."

  4. Lucky was never really my cat. I am sure she is happy and well. I hope so, anyway.... :)

  5. Munchkin is totally adorable...looks like you're both lucky!thanks for adopting a rescue cat...
