She seems to be adjusting rather well, wouldn’t you say?

    Awww. She is so cute!! I’ve been thinking about getting a cat, and this is more weight toward that argument.

    She does seem to have a little cold, but I’ve been assured that’s normal. (Right?)

      Please have the vet check out that kitty “cold”. Feline pneumonitis, distemper, etc. can appear to be just a cold, but can become serious. Best not to let a virus/bacterial infection get a head start. Sorry, don’t want to cause anxiety : ( but better safe than, you know. She is just adorable & I’m so glad she is bringing you all joy & I reckon some comic relief, too.

        Yes, going to cat vet tomorrow (special deluxe cat vet for only cats that is, o joy, much closer than our old dog vet). When you don’t know a creature very well, you don’t know which symptoms are worrisome and which are nothing to bother about…perhaps this cat would be tearing up the house if she weren’t under the weather?
        So anyway, vet once-over tomorrow…

    We just adopted a kitten (7 months). I echo “sheer joy” and “unbridled enthusiasm.” Our dog, who LOVES the snow shows the same joy this time of year, but somehow the purring adds oh so much. Everyone has assured me that Amigo’s cold is normal, so Cassie’s probably the same.

    I’ve only ever adopted stray dogs and cats, and all have had some sort of “kennel cough”, which I was assured by the shelter vets would go away. It always did.

    Yellow cats are the best – even my vet says so!

    You are seriously making me want another cat with this picture. She is just oozing happiness and contentment.

    So cute! (My husband’s allergic to cats otherwise we would have one.)

    As a fellow cat lover, I have to say, that is the picture of pure contentment. Love it!

    You could just kiss that precious lil’ pink nose!

    Reminds me of another good “rescue” story – we were working w/Great Pyrenees rescue last week to place an adult male… Rescue coordinator couldn’t be there before pickup by new family, she asked me to perform her little ritual: she places a red lipstick kiss on dog’s face & takes a photo to post on website…

    All well & good, except I don’t even OWN a tube of lipstick! Lucky for me a good friend/client came in that morning, & I borrowed hers… Mission accomplished (after all, it was far from the first OR last time I’ll kiss a dog!)

    She is so adorable. And looks perfectly content in your home.

    We found our cat, who is now 14, at the local humane society and when we got her home she had a cold. I went to the vet with her and was assured that it was quite normal for cats to pick up a small virus when they were housed with so many other cats. I think it’s the cat equivalent of “kennel cough.”

    I’ve also heard that ginger cats are very friendly and companionable.

    Cats sleep so well.

    I am still surprised she is a she. Orange cats are almost always male (but you said she was spayed so…this one beat the odds I guess…).
