Miss Mia Grace came to live with me the weekend I took Kayla back to Miami in June 2004. Jen called and asked if I really wanted another cat (after Gabbee). I was hesitant, but said yes. She was at Publix and a lady was giving away kittens born on Mothers' Day, unexpectedly, which made her 5 weeks old. I was finally able to meet her late on Sunday, June 20th on my way back to Gainesville. She was just the tiniest little orange ball of fur!

It took about 2 weeks to finally settle on her name. I was watching Princess Diaries and just love the name Amelia from there.. hence Mia. Plus, she is the most ungraceful little thing I've ever seen. Her middle name was tacked on a few months later to compensate... ha!

We have now been together for about a year and a half. We adopted Phoenix in August 2005 so she wouldn't be so lonely. Oy what a fiasco those first few weeks were! They still fight from time to time, but mostly they get along.

And now, in reverse chronological order, here are the few pictures I have uploaded to my site. Trust me, there are MANY more on my computer and camera.... I've seriously slacked on taking and posting pictures.. so these are pretty outdated. She looks the same though.
