Gentle reader, meet Leela. Leela, meet these lovely souls.
It was finally finally finally time. After eighteen months of having a Jones-shaped hole in my heart the
moment came to share our home with a new four-legged person.
I don't even remember where I was, just that I felt compelled to start looking.
I found Leela on the Silicon Valley Humane Society website, a picture that was blurry at best and showed me the things I most wanted to see:
a gentle spirit
and the markings of Akua.
I feel like both boy cats sent breadcrumbs so I could find this tiny girl.
and oooooh is she tiny!
And gentle and prancy-dancy
and her eyes are so dreamy blue-green...
The three humans here are pretty much obsessed...
She is really having a rough time adjusting though I've been very slow to introduce the two,
employing a gradual approach to ease our dear older girl into the acceptance that she has to suffer another young thing in her business.
Oh Janey.... I hope you'll thank us someday.
Orion seems to want to share her breath he's so excited.
Mostly though we're all just happy to be here together on a nice hot San Jose Saturday
in the cottage
hanging out with a leaping kitten
and a nice breeze coming through.
I have a gift to share with you in the coming days
that may be of service to your hearts.
