meet the new cat, sorta like the old cat

It's been a long and lonely 4 months since Partners-the-cat died. In some ways it might still be too soon to get a new cat, in others it is the perfect time.

A friend took in a pregnant cat recently and we're in line to get one of the kittens. A cute grey tabby female kitten, as soon as it is old enough to leave its mother, will be joining our family.

The thought of getting the kitten left us really excited to have feline energy around the place again; we figured that the kitten should have a friend.

We took a trip last weekend to visit the kittens. Playing with 7 tiny kitties filled us with cat lust. Next stop: petco on union square, where they give some space in the store to Kitty Kind, a no-kill volunteer run cat rescue organization. There were a few cats that we were looking at and I was leaning towards one that had a tag on his cage that said "sweetest boy ever!" He was cute, but spent the entire time we were there sleeping. But when Nitro (now renamed Farfel) stuck his paw out of the cage and grabbed Jenna's leg, her face lit up in a way that told me "forget about the others, we're taking this one."

A few hours later, Farfel was in his new home waiting not so patiently for his sister to show up. If you have any good ideas for cat names, check out Jenna's post on the topic.

Noah's mom had a dog named Afikomen. Myself, I'm kind of liking Gefilte.

not sure on that one

my childhood memories of Gefilte fish prevent me from associating it with something cute and cuddly
