New cat!

After about 2 years of being a one-cat household, fizzygeek and I decided it was time to adopt another cat. We've looked at several shelters, met a host of available cats, and deliberated endlessly. We went down to Siamese Rescue, where I used to volunteer to meet a gorgeous cat named Jet Li. However, Jet Li just didn't click with us in person. I was rather taken with an older cat called Sammy, who reminded me of a wonderful laid-back cat I grew up with. We also met a bunch of other cats, including Jacques and Stuart, who had just arrived and were too nervous to display their real personalities.

Then fizzygeek found another nice looking cat on the website and we went down to meet him and perhaps bring him home. Walker sure was a gorgeous Balinese with the most amazing soft fur. But he seemed to both of us to be too excitable and flighty to be a good companion for Callie. I'm not worried about him finding a home though. We also spent a good bit of time playing with Sammy and Stuart, who both seemed like nice playful mellow cats. Unfortunately, we couldn't decide which was a better bet! So we headed back home empty-handed, promising to make a decision and email them the next day. We stopped on the way home at El Agave, an excellent Mexican restaurant we'd eaten at before. As always, there was a line to get in, and as always, the food was excellent. Sitting there next to the Christmas tree, eating top notch mole, we realized we'd both decided Sammy would be a good match.

So we sent the email, worked our way through the adoption paperwork, and tried to figure out when we could bring him home. After much juggling of schedules, emails, and phone calls, it looks like I'll be able to head down tomorrow and pick him up.
