Kitteh, part 2 - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Kitteh, part 2
Well, I got an adult cat, a one-year-old female with fluffy black hair. They called her "Chelsea" at the shelter, but I think I'm going to name her Feathertail, after one of the Warriors cats, because her tail looks like a big black plume. We'll see, though--we haven't had long to get to know each other, as she is currently engaged in the feline tradition of hiding when introduced to a new place. Jelly Roll is engaged in the time-honored feline tradition of pouting in the other room and looking at me like I've betrayed him so utterly that I may never be forgiven. (Though he allows me to pet and spoil him, and purrs while he's making pathetic little hissing noises, so I guess we'll be okay.)

Oh, that's great news! Another cat finds a good home. She sounds lovely. I'm sure Jelly will forgive you if you keep sending the ear scratches his way...

Congratulations! She sounds beautiful:) Don't worry about the hiding- my Minou hid under the bed for a week after I got her- but would purr and let me pet her from there. It just takes a little patience. And don't worry about the other kitty- things'll settle down soon enough, and you'll find them lounging together on the couch (after more than a few squabbles).

Congratulations on the addition to your family! We got two kittens ourselves a couple weeks ago, who are still very cute when they're not having tussles on the bed at some ridiculous hour in the morning.

poor cute babies! whenever your new little girl comes out and shows herself, you should offer both cats treats at the same time near each other, so they learn to associate being with the other cat with getting good things. you can also try engaging them both in the same game, like one of those giant feather-on-a-stick contraptions.

Well, congrats on the cat - Feathertail - nonetheless! Kinda surprised you didn't name her Dora. ;)

Don't worry, in no time at all Feathertail will be acting like she owns the place. :~p

And I would like to congratulate you on the wisdom of getting a one-year old cat. You won't have to go through the kitten crazies!

Awww, she sounds beautiful... <3 And yes, you heartless woman, how could you do that to Jelly? Don't you know he's meant to be the only cat in your life EVER? *lol* Obviously he's not too angry if he still allows you to hug him; I guess he needs the reassurance. *chuckles*

Aww, congratulations to both of you. :) I can't wait to see pictures!

Congratulations! If there's purring AND hissing, I'm sure it can't be too bad.
