adopted new kitten

So we sort of had an accident the other day. And by accident, I mean I scoured the internet to find an appropriately aged girl who wasn't from a BYB and needed a home. On Monday we found a little calico girl who is the same age as Taco. It was a lot of work, but quick work, and they're getting along like BFFs already. Her given name is Horchata, but we call her ChaChi which she already answers to. She is extremely fluffy. Her mama has medium length hair, as does her only sister. We had her to the vet to get her a checkup and on schedule with shots, and she's totally healthy and perfect. Since we're limited locally to two cats, our family is now complete. And I couldn't be happier.

As much as I love senior kitties, I admit: I'm a total sucker for kittens. It's always so, so sweet to see them interact together. (ESPECIALLY the adorable snuggles)

I'm glad you found such a cute friend for your little Taco.~

My husband was against a second kitten. He kept saying that it would double the food and vet costs, and double the poop. Just as I had resigned myself, he relented. My plan was, with his refusal to add a kitten, to wait til Taco was about 1 1/2 or 2 and find an adult companion for him at the shelter. I have to say though, that compared to what I've read about adult cats I think we had a pretty easy time getting them to accept each other.

ChaChi! Horchata's a Good name, she seems to get along with Taco so well!
