We have a new kitten. Meet Zoe. She has actually been here for three weeks now and has more then settled in as the new matriarch.

I didn’t write about us losing Otto in March. It all happened quite suddenly. We finally had more of an answer for his increasingly odd behavior as it seems he had a brain tumor of some sort and his mind simply checked out one evening. We ended up putting him to sleep a few hours later.

So, anyway we went from 5 cats to 3 in a matter of 4 months. While we felt 5 was too many, there was definitely an odd feeling only having the 3 boys around (Pick, Romeo and Peanut). One of my co-workers was fostering a kitten and sent me her picture in a bid to bring us back up to 4 cats. When I saw that she was a tortoiseshell my heart melted a bit as I still miss Capo quite a bit. Colleen decided that Peanut (our youngest) needed a playmate, so we went ahead and brought her home for a trial run. Needless to say she is here to stay. She has taken to Capo’s role of keeping “the stinky boys” in line quite naturally.
