Well – a new cat has arrived. Anna and the kids (can I still call them that?) went out and found her on July 12 . Amy does a nice job of describing that process here: http://theelectricmirror.posterous.com/60703993
We went thru numerous name possibilities: Skittles, Twix, Lux, Xray (lots of “X” names for some reason). And we settled on Kitcat (yes – like the candy bar). I intend to call her “the cat”.
she is the top predator in the house now:
She attacks her own feet:
So – it is nice to have a little life in the house. An insane kitten type. And she seems to have started attacking my feet now.
