surpriseMom had been kind of on the lookout for a friend for Annatto. Soda is a nice guy and all, but he isn't quite too....playful shall we say.
Turns out the director of the rescue was fostering this little girl who needs some social skills. She was trapped and then taken to another shelter who said she was too feral and to put her down. Word finally got back to our rescue and the response was "give us the *beep* kitten".
She is very scared and hissy, but she will get over it pretty quickly we suspect. She and Annatto were fine Wednesday night and then mom heard them Thursday morning calling each other names. We suspect the new girl just hasn't quite figured out how to communicate....and it doesn't help she is talking to Annatto who's grasp of "cat" is fuzzy at best.
Mom was reading a book last weekend and one of the main characters rescued a pair of kittens and his niece named them Peanut and Goldfish. That made mom laugh, so our little tuxedo girl shall henceforth be known as Goldfish.
In other news, Soda got out of the foster room on Wednesday night (followed of course by Annatto - thankfully Goldfish stayed in the room). Mom thinks he made have had outside help as the door shoves toward him. Either way, he got out twice and mom wasn't too happy. Both times Daiquiri got fairly bent out of shape, though she restricted herself to hissing. Poor Soda just did his best to stay out of her way. Mom put another barrier in front of the door and as she is typing this, she checked the cameras and everyone is still where they are supposed to be for now.
Oh - you may have noticed this week that we only posted Monday-Wednesday-Friday. We are going to give that a try for a while and see what happens. If something interesting pops up, we may post the other days, but this format allows mom to tell more stories and less seeming to throw something together for the sake of getting something posted.
