Happy Holidays and a New Addition to our Home

One of very few holiday songs I can stomach, plus its got friends in it! (Thanks Jeanne for the reminder!)


Earlier this month we had the pleasure of adopting a young cat from a very generous and caring woman who had rescued her as well as four others left in a carrier on a sidewalk in Brooklyn. I haven't been able to get another kitty as my Jezebel was my first little girl that was with me for 21.5 years. Every time I tried something would come up (usually something disastrous that would force our hand to wait.) Well when I saw this little girls face, a grin broke out and tears rolled down my face. I knew she was ours. It was as if Jezebel finally said it was okay and sent a little angel that looks very much like her. We named her Calliope (muse of poetry) and she is having a blast adjusting to her new home and companion, our dog Fiona. They even kissed noses one day, so my worries about fights was unfounded (though Fiona is very social so I actually wasn't too worried.) Since she was a rescue we have no idea if or how much socialization she's had, and she does still tend to be a bit skittish but is getting better every day -- so much so that she now climbs into bed with us. She's a joy, and we love our little angel. Her crate-mate was a lovely ginger tom that sadly had to be put down this week after getting either into rat poison or eating a mouse that was poisoned. I had hoped to spread the word so that he too could get adopted, but sadly the little angel is gone.

Calliope. She looks very much like Jezebel, only Jez had green eyes and Calliope has gold eyes that kind of match her ginger patches! Sweet little girl, we're very lucky to have adopted her from someone so kind. (Never mind the cat hair laden carpet, I was too lazy!)

Happy Holidays to everyone, I wish you all a happy, healthy holiday season! See you all in the new year!

    1. Thank you Sarah! It was meant to be. We now think she's a bit younger than originally thought and was feral. Well she had to have at least been on the street for some time as she tries to eat her food before I've finished putting it in the bowl! And her and our Westie Fiona are starting to play together YAY! Happy Kitty New Year indeed! I hope yours is fantastic! XXX
