You may have seen a white-glove-sporting kitten making an appearance in some of my Instagram photos lately. So today, I’m excited to finally introduce him. Meet our 5 month old fur baby, guest contributor and project model that you’ll be seeing around these parts every once and awhile, Gideon Francois!
Ken and I weren’t necessarily in the market for our first kitty just yet, but when my sister-in-law mentioned she was looking for a home for a gregarious, tuxedo kitten she found hiding underneath her car down in Kansas, Ken and I both looked at each other and I asked jokingly, ‘is it time?!’
After hearing what a great family cat he was around our playful 3 year old nephew, and their 2 big hunting dogs, we offered to take him even without meeting him. Looking back, that was kind of a risky move, but thankfully it all worked out. He’s a playful, but oh-so-cuddly kitten who’s always got his tuxedo on, ready for his close-up!
Now that everyone is up to speed on Gideon, and since this IS a DIY and design blog, I want to share a few kitty finds: a mix of DIY’s and smartly designed toys that I’m eyeing up for our little man!
