Yesterday when we were visiting Pemaquid, we visited the graveyard by the fort. My mom and dad gave me a card. "That's weird," I thought, "it's not my birthday yet. My birthday is October 2nd."

Just then, a red car that I had never seen before drove up. Dad and Mom said that they had gotten me an early birthday present. I was confused! Dad said that the people in the car were the Orcutts. They asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said, "A kitten!" They said, "How about an old blanket?"

They handed me a pink blanket. It felt a little heavy to be just a blanket. Just then, a little whiskered, big-eared, furry face popped up from the depths of the blanket. It was a Sealpoint Siamese kitten! I was surprised!

When we were walking back to our boat we were deciding on a name. I thought maybe Josephine. I did not agree with myself. So then I came up with the name Daisy. When we took her back to the boat she slept the whole day. I slept with her at night so she wouldn't be scared. The next day all she wanted to do was explore and play. Watching her is like an all-day comedy show!
