Habemus Felem!

At long last, the new kitty has joined us. It seems that the animal shelter was able to evacuate the dogs before the hurricane whacked the Galveston area, but couldn't get the cats out in time, so the owners just hunkered down with the felines and waited it out, despite the mandatory evacuation order. Fortunately the Bay Area didn't get the full brunt of the storm after all, or there might not have been any cats, or shelter, left at all.

Home at last. Offspring #1 adores her; she tolerates the enthusiastic affections of Offspring #2 ("For he is an instrument for the children to learn benevolence upon"--Christopher Smart); and except for an unfortunate proclivity for early-morning toe-pouncing, she's quite suitable for adult company.

Of course we went ahead and named her Rita.
