Yvette, who generally prefers the absence of other cats, wandered into Jeffrey’s cage while he was quietly sitting up on his cubby. I don’t know whether she didn’t even realize he was there, or what, but one second before this photo was taken they were glaring at each other and hissing.
Not moving, mind you. Just hissing.
Upstairs, Nicole was still so quiet. She wasn’t sure this week what to tell me about being petted.
Poor little lady, I want to take her home but we are full up.
With only three cats in the room on Saturday, it was much quieter than it has been recently. Jeffrey and Nicole were not apt to wander around, so Yvette had the run of the place. She took full advantage, and inspected everything. It was nice to get to spend some time with her one on one. She’s pretty sweet girl when she’s not watching for other cats out of the corner of her eye.
This plush and handsome guy was new to us this past week, and he did not stay long. He was adopted Sunday, together with another adult cat who had just arrived that day.
He was a little on the shy side but very sweet. And he had great stripes.
Adopted last week: the little black kitten.

One of the two black kittens from last week was adopted, the other remained with us (they were both girls – I got that wrong – so we are now a house of female cats for a moment). She was sort of looking for her sister, and sort of looking for company, and she was scooting all over looking into everything. She tried to get acquainted with Yvette but was rebuffed.
Scared little Nicole liked to be petted and even tolerated being held for a brief while, but she was most comfortable in her cubby.
She is a pretty all-over dilute tortie with wide eyes. Digging into her paperwork revealed that she was brought into rescue in Caroline County LAST JUNE with three baby kittens, who were adopted long ago. That is a heck of a long time to be in a cage.
You can tell by the tail that she is of two minds here.
Since it’s Toesday and she had cute tortie toes I tried hard to get a picture of them.
It wasn’t easy, though – for some reason trying to photograph her toes made her turn her back.
She is so overdue for a forever home.
