Thanks all! She is settling in quite nicely. She still has to make some introductions of the other cats, but I don't think that will painful. I gave her free roam of the upstairs yesterday and blocked the stairs with a baby gate to keep her separated. I didn't have thoughts of instant cuddling and acceptance when she saw one of the other cats, but she just she hissed then walked away - exactly what I was hoping for. I'm always nervous when bringing in someone new but this is very acceptable behavior to start with. At least she is not aggressive.
She was a stray for several weeks that people fed and someone finally turned her over to Animal Control. She'd been there about 2 weeks when I found her - not long thankfully.
Grrawritsjordi - I am VERY partial to tuxedos too, but I'm very glad I chose Lacey. I don't think I could have found a sweeter cat with a more unattractive face! Her face looks exactly like her adoption photo on top and I am growing to just love it more each day. I know we will have many happy years together here! The tuxedo will be adopted, it was just too cute!
