So, I thought we'd settled on the idea of only having two cats. Extra-toes and Blind-kitty seem to be getting along great -- but, hubby and I kept thinking and talking about a new cat.
We decided to go look at them, to see if any of the shelter cats really called to us.
you guessed it, it only took TWO cats for us to fall in love.
We figured that taking our new cat from the Humane Society allows us to bring them back as necessary, and they wouldn't be any worse off than if we'd never taken them home....
The second cat we took into the 'get acquanted room' (i.e. the be alone with the cat so the cat can sort out whether or not you are woth going home with...) became our new cat. She's about 2 years old and what they called a 'tabico', which means she's like a calico whose colored parts are tabby. Her tabby parts are mostly orange with some brown. Her tail has the typical tabby stripes.
We've named her Terabithia... so far -- with Tera as her working name.
When we brought her home, both boy cats were friendly --- she hissed. We'll have to see how she acts when she isn't stressed and freaked out. She seems to love hubby and me.
For now she'll mostly stay in the DC, the boys will stay out of the DC. As I write, she's taken up residence in a paper bag from Target. I don't think she's figured out exactly how lucky she's become....
