It's A Girl!

Here is the latest addition to our household:

Meet Abby!  We adopted her today from MEOW in Kirkland.  She is nine months old and is a really sweet kitty. 

So far Jackie and Oliver don't even seem to care that there is another cat in the house.  We have her shut in my office until she acclimates and they have been sitting by the office door a little bit when we are inside with Abby but paying no attention when we are downstairs.  When we brought her in in her carrier Ollie sniffed her nose and then just sauntered over to his food bowl.  Jackie sniffed her nose and stayed around a little while to sniff some more.  We were very pleased to hear no hissing, see no flattening of ears or fluffing of tails.  In Abby's foster home she got along really well with three adult cats so hopefully she will fit in here. 

So far she seems to lack basic jumping abilities but LOVES to give head butts and get lots and lots of pets.  She even lets you touch her belly! She seems to be playful but not a giant spazz which is exactly what we wanted. 

We can't wait to see how the meet and greets go!
