Meet the newest member of our family! We adopted this little guy from the Irvine Animal Shelter a few short days ago, but he’s already left giant-sized pawprints on our hearts.
Like most kitties, he’s active…until he’s not. daytime activities include eating, nuzzling into our shoulders, pestering his feline sister, and crashing on the couch.
He doesn’t yet have a name, poor thing, but we’re working on it! So far, I’m leaning toward Sukha, a Sanskrit word that means ( loosely translated) "sweet, joyful, comfortable." In a word: bliss.
Even Le Chat Lunatique seems to like him. At first she hissed, growled and sulked–clearly perturbed by the brazen fluff ball that kept invading her territory. He ate from her food dish, pounced on her tail, and stalked her every move, purring all the while. But they’ve worked out some kind of peace accord, so whew, kitty crises averted!
I will always love Zoë, but this tiny bundle of energy has somehow managed to fill the hollow spaces left behind in Le Chat Genteel’s absence. "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." So it was promised; witness the evidence.
P.S. My internet connection is very spotty, which is why I’ve not been responding to your blog entries of late. Gah, I’ve been missing our LJ give-and-take! I actually co-opted a friend’s computer to post this, because I couldn’t hold onto this wonderful news any longer. If all goes well, the problem should be resolved later today. I hope so, ’cause I can’t wait to re-connect with all of you…
