Ever since my cat, Stormy, died of cancer in July, I've been wanting to get a kitten. It feels empty here with only one cat, plus I think Elvira needs a companion, especially when I go away for a weekend at a friend's house. So, yesterday, I adopted this little girl from the Yavapai Humane Society. She is three months old, feisty, fearless, and opinionated. That was what attracted me to her at the shelter: she was YELLING louder than the other cats! And when I held her, she immediately began purring like a motorboat. I held another kitten, a beautiful calico, but the grey one kept hollering. So she came home with me.

 

As you can see, Elvira is really really really really really thrilled to have a new sibling. The kitten is under the blanket tent that I made for her, and Elvira is hissing at her. Today, they are still at that stage. Elvira threw up this morning, probably from the stress of having a new cat in the house after she had just got used to being an only cat. She seems to be getting better, though. 

 

I had a hard time choosing a for the n00b. I liked Earl Grey as a name, but she's a girl, and so it became...Pearl Grey! Also, Pearl Forrester is my favorite character on Mystery Science Theater 3000. She's a mad scientist, and the kitten is just plain mad, so it works out great!

It didn't take long for Pearl to start messing with her new big sister. Here, she is "hiding" behind the curtain and jumping out at Elvira, who hisses at her but nevertheless doesn't leave.

I love them. I have a girl ginger who is making Schmoo crazy. He cries and cries to be with her even though he is neutered. She's a sweet girl but I am at catpacity. I've been trying to get her a good home before it gets cold. We are taking her to get fixed this weekend.
