Life has been a combination of the serious and the silly, around here, for 2 weeks, now...
Ever since Daddy Kiril rescued a little kitten on Friday, Sept. 4th ( just follow the links for the story so far ).
Once daddy let her out for us to touch and interact with Elvira assigned me the task of most frequent contact for the first few days.
It was a job I was more than ready to undertake and I soon found myself closely watching her every move as she explored her new surroundings, sniffing her up and down, chatting with her and playing with her (she has taken quite eagerly to her wrasslin' lessons, hee, hee!) and reporting back to Elvira.
Elvira has always been reserved, getting into a playful mood, with me, on her own terms and she was no different with the newbie.
But she slowly came around, showing a keen interest in my reports and expressing approval to daddy, outside the little one's hearing.
Her sense of humor eventually showed up, as I expected it would at some point, and the moment was a keeper, hee, hee!
She is energetic, curious and talkative.
Of, course, if this was going to be her Forever Home, daddy's ability to handle the extra family member was important...
As was the acceptance of Elvira Mistress of Felinity, senior kitty of our house.
Daddy said there was a reason Ceiling Cat led him to her and he trusted that judgement.
On Tortie/Tuxedo Tuesday, this past week...Elvira gave her approval...and she joined daddy and I in deciding on her name...something daddy had already been considering and which I thought was a brilliant choice.
