Our little refugee

We're getting an addition to our household soon, and we won't even have to hire a handyman for it. This one is short and fuzzy and upset right now that her person has disappeared. Meet Annabelle.

Annabelle with her person, "Gram".

Look at that silly face!

She belongs to the grandmother of one of Sister A's friends. The grandmother is in the hospital and it's not looking good for her, so she's worried sick about her kitty. The granddaughter contacted A., describing Annabelle as "a sweet little kitty....She is a smart girl ~ doesn't care too much for men. ;-) ...She's an indoor/outdoor ladies' cat, litter trained and a true snuggler." She's also been spayed and is caught up on her shots.

A. and I talked about it, and we decided to take Annabelle in. I know Sammi would like a playmate (Minnie still interprets her chasing as aggression). We would love for either of our kitties to have a cuddle-mate. We hope the interactions of our trio won't morph into a huge, jealousy-charged cat fight. There's no way to tell how this will go, but we've got room and we'd like to help this little girl. I don't know when Annabelle will arrive, but it'll probably be soon.

We're going to start her out in the sewing room and try to introduce everyone gradually. Wish us luck!
