New Family Member

After the road trip yesterday, we went to the Animal Shelter and picked up a kitten.  Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of her yet.  She's a 13 week-old long haired White/Gray kitty who definitely likes to be petted.

One thing we hadn't thought of is that she's lived in a cage at the shelter for most of her life, and she doesn't seem to have much character as yet.  She's very timid, and doesn't want to play very much.  I am hopeful that she will develop some desire to interact with her owners.  The family dog is not much help in this regard.

Bridget the dachshund is so eager to play with the cat that she is scaring it half to death.  When they finally got face to face, the dog was all over her, sniffing and poking her rear end.  Cats like to have a little space, but the dog doesn't understand that of course.  And the dog whines for hours when she can see the cat, but can't get to her.  Very annoying.  We will see how it plays out as the cat becomes more comfortable with her new home.
