It's Hard to Knit or Read With...

...this sweet girl around:
This is Kola, and she is part of our family now. There is a story behind her adoption. Our trip to Door County was first trip we've taken since putting down Weeko in April. While we were gone, Keith's brother came in once a day to feed Nagi.
When we got back from Door County, Nagi was a like a dog. He followed us everywhere. He woke Keith up every few hours during the night with licks and love. This represented a complete personality change. Clearly, he had been desperately lonely during our trip.
So the next day we went to the Humane Society. The place was packed with humans wanting cats, so we were very lucky to get Kola. Her name is Lakota for friend; Nagi is Lakota for both gray and shadow.
They were friends instantly. They play together and even nap together.

She is almost 6 months old. When she first came home she smelled terribly from ringworm treatment, but that is fading. She still has lots of kitten energy and is entertaining to us as well as to Nagi. So far, she is very attached to Keith and I, so we are hoping she will be a lap cat -- something neither Weeko nor Nagi have been.

Nagi is back to his more sedate self. I miss all that affection, but I'm glad that he's happy.

  4. It's nice your kitties get along. All mine do is fight. I spend all day refereeing. Especially at meal time.

  8. Kola is just adorable. Fun to find a Yellow female cat! Gingers are wonderful. I agree with Dee. Pie and Bea and Fezzik and Tank all say WELCOME Kola. You hit the jack pot with your forever family. Two cats is always better than one. And that they hit it off right away is astounding to me!
