The juxtaposition of the Humane Society of Silicon Valley's Adopt-an-adult-cat-free week with with Nimue's upcoming birthday proved irresistable. We now have a funny-looking but very sweet black-and-white-splotched four-year-old cat named Mariam in addition to the Bobber.
Nimue is quite pleased, of course. She spent all of last evening and this morning in the TV room where the new cat is confined for a few days during the "get used to the new house" period.
The Bobber, of course, knows something is up, and has installed herself just outside the door to that room. The two cats have looked at each other through the door without either one seeming unduly perturbed: a very good sign.
