Insights Into Teens: Episode 90 “Pumpkin Spices Up The Family”

This week is a cute kitten episode. We showcase the newest addition to our family, our little kitten Pumpkin. We’ll discuss the circumstances of why we decided to expand our family after feeling the loss of one of our beloved elder cats. We’ll talk about where we found pumpkin, who we were lucky enough to get her from and the details of the adoption process.

The second half of the show is dedicated to Pumpkin herself. The diva of a kitten makes an early and unexpected appearance early on in the show but is kind enough to come back to close out the show with us. We’ll talk about some of the fun little things we’ve discovered about her so far, explore her interesting personality, detail how she’s gotten along with the rest of the family and share some fun stories we’ve got from her in just the last couple of weeks.

Stick around until the end of the show with a special bonus montage of some of our favorite photo’s that we’ve snapped of the cute little kitten, including her holiday outfit!
