...Baxter...

We brought Baxter into our home almost 3 years ago. He has been the best cat for us! We spoiled that cat like crazy! Completely treating him like our child. When Cohen was born, Baxter kinda got put on the back burner.... not on purpose, but Cohen obviously was our first priority. We didn't give him the attention that we had before Cohen joined our family. With the new baby coming soon, we thought maybe it was time to give him to a family that will give him the attention that we used to give him. Then with finding the house that we will be renting, they told us that we can't have a cat.

Last night I put an ad on KSL (kinda like craigslist), for Baxter, and instantly we got phone calls, and e-mails! I couldn't believe it! We were so afraid that it would take forever to find a good home for him. So tonight a really nice family came over, and played with him, And instantly fell in love with him. We felt really good about that family. Then they left to think about it, and another family came over. They wanted him too. We felt a little better about the first family, so we gave him to them. that's it... in less than 24 hours, of us deciding for sure to give him away... he was gone. :(

We will truly miss Baxter. He has been such a great kitty, besides the sudden attacks on me..... But it's been soooo cute to watch Cohen chasing him around the house, and drive cars along Baxter's back! WE LOVE YOU BAXTER!!!!

These pictures were taken while we were waiting for the family to come back to get him. I'm glad we got an hour or so to spend with him, so we could say goodbye. Cohen was being so cute with him. So we have some very sweet memories....
