Wordless Wednesday: The Seven-Year-Old finally gets her kitten

Introducing Canelo, our new super sweet and snuggly 4 month old kitten.

Canelo discovered our sunroom at 9:30 a.m. yesterday morning. He didn't leave it until well after 5 o'clock last night. (Photo: Shala Howell)

The Seven-Year-Old is over the moon, and reads Canelo a bedtime story nearly every night. According to the Seven-Year-Old, Canelo simply adores Sherlock Holmes, although he wishes he would hurry up and catch that big dog already. Hounds that size have no business being on the loose.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

      Well, someone needs to give them a good home. 🙂

      We thought long and hard about getting a dog instead, but decided, somewhat reluctantly, that we were not up to providing the level of care a dog would require. Seeing all the good dog owners in Chicago walking their dogs faithfully every six hours in the midst of one polar vortex after another might – just might – have contributed to that decision.
