You knew it was coming, right? Kitten time happened this weekend. The family gifted me a kitten way back in April for my birthday but we had decided that it would be best to wait until after Aaron and Erin’s wedding to actually get one. Plus I was still not ready after losing Buddy in January. This was the weekend that “my” kitten was ready to come home. He was born August 17th which is a special day in my family with 3 marriages taking place over the years on that day so it was meant to be.
We headed to Cummings, Georgia to pick up our little bundle of fluff. Pick up was not without a bit of drama but we worked it out and officially picked up this little nugget at 10:05 a.m. on Saturday.
I am smitten. He is going to be so much fun. Holly met him in his carrier a few times already and sniffed, was not impressed, might have hissed a little bit and is feeling a bit out of whack. We will introduce very slowly and safely and we are hopeful that all will settle down eventually. I am confident all will be well in a while. Thank you for indulging me – there might be more pictures coming…. You can follow Maksim on Instagram by clicking here.

Maksim is so sweet. I hope he and Holly become BFF’s in time.
I hope they become BFF’s soon but it is hard to tell. Holly is ….Holly. But we love her as well and want to make the transition easy for both of them. He cries when he is not with us but he will just have to get used to that like Holly will have to get used to him!
Maksim is perfect! He got the best home! I’m looking forward to lots of cute photos.
Thanks so much for indulging my cat loving self! He is such great fun!
I love the photo of him sitting on Chris in the car!
He is VERY photogenic already!
Maksim is absolutely adorable! He’s so fluffy!!!! Hopefully, Holly will learn to love him as much as you do already.
THanks, Cindy. He is just so fluffy and fun right now! Holly will get used to him over time but it is going to take awhile. She has been queen for a long time!
I am definitely NOT a cat person, but this is a real cutie! I can already see he’s going to wrap you and hubby around his furry paw, and it won’t be long before he’s ruling the household. Happy Gotcha Day to your wee fluff!
Thanks, Debbie! That means a lot coming from a non cat person!
Welcome home, Maksim. You are one blessedl kitty to have your new pawrents. He is so cute, Beth Ann, I can see why your heart is so full. Many happy times are coming for all of you.
Thanks, Shirley. We are so in love with him already!
Absolutely adorable!!! I, too, am smitten from afar. Can’t wait for more pics; I found myself smiling through this entire blog post!
Cat lovers unite! He is so doggone adorable. So fluffy and playful. We are going to have so much fun with him!
Love that you cremated an IG account for him so we can follow his antics. He’s so adorable! ❤️
I HAD to do and Insta account for all of his cuteness!
I can’t believe it says “cremated”. Gotta love autocorrect. Of course I meant “CREATED”. Jeez.
Just so utterly cute and already feeling like part of your wonderful family. Holly will come around.
He is so adorable. He plays hard and then falls asleep in the funniest positions. We are having a lot of fun with him and hopefully Holly will accept him over time. If not her life is going to be miserable. 🙂
What a sweetie. You drove three hours to get him, like we drove 5 hours to get Dot. You will have so much fun with him. I’m sure Holly will come around. There will never be too many kitties pictures. Hugs to everyone.
He’s a handsome fellow! Give him some love for me

Enjoy that sweet little ball of fluff!
