While I was out and about Friday one of my errands was to stop by the vet's and grab some food for Bixby. While I was there I asked Tracy, the girl who rescued Harry, if she had any kittens. Ever since Mouse died I haven't had a lap cat and I really miss that. It's summer so of course she did. I have a soft spot for orange tabbies, always have and this one was too cute to resist.

While I was there, she crawled all over me, purring and swatting, curious as could be. I headed home and asked my boys if we could have a kitty, letting them sniff her on me. Harry said no instantly but when have I ever let a no stop me from doing anything?

So yesterday I brought her home. Poor little thing is scared to death and the boys are pissed, to say the least. She's been in hiding pretty much since she got here. They've been growling and hissing and generally miserable when they bother to come downstairs at all. At least Bixby is speaking to me again this morning but he's been through this before so I expected him to get over it first.

I know things will settle down and they'll all find their balance. I know Kya will come out when she's ready. But it's hard when all I want to do is cuddle her and I have no idea where she's hiding. And I'm afraid if I don't convince her to snuggle now, she never will. Oh, one good thing, Harry and Quinn haven't fought since Kya got here. They seem to have united in the face of an intruder. Sigh.

Oh, Barb...she's absolutely adorable! Too cute for words, I swear.

Don't worry, the boys will fall in love with her soon, I'm sure.

Nothing like an orange tabby!

Oh what a doll baby. She's adorable. The other two look gorgeous and healthy. As you know, they'll get it worked out.
I've got a different foster now and she's the sweetest yet.

Oh Barb, she is just the cutest! I'm sure the boys will come around soon enough.
Enjoy! :)

She'll have them twisted around her paw before you know it. Give her a hug for me.
