The first glimpse

Here is one of the earliest photos. The new little girl had been settled in her room with all the necessities, including a cat tent with a fleece cat bed insert and a freshly made "human" bed with cosy flannelette sheets. The first hour she was huddled under the desk by her food looking out at us with her green eyes, emitting an occasional hiss and/or growl. My husband pointed out she had just lost her family with whom she had spent the last three years and the familiarity of their home so it was expected that she would probably feel lonely. We left her in peace for a while and then popped our heads in to see how she was doing. We found her curled up, fast asleep in the cat carrier that came with her. This was the only "smell" of home for her so hopefully was giving her some comfort.

She was named Schmoo (spelling?) by her previous family but there is a great debate here about a new name for her. We have three people weighing in and 3 different names so far. No sign of any agreement so it might be awhile before I can tag the posts with a proper label.

(And speaking of names, yes, Wendy......we might have to rethink the name of the blog!)

It'll be interesting to see how the boys like having a girl around the house :-)

Congratulations, she looks like a beautiful girl! I'm sure that very quickly she will realize she has hit the kitty jackpot being adopted into your loving home :-)

Yes, you will definitely have to change her name...Schmoo is awful! As she becomes more comfortable and her personality starts to emerge, a name will reveal itself :-)

As for your blog, it could be "Our Furry Boys...and a Girl" - LOL!

All white and a girl kitty? Squeeeee!
No name suggestions here, we were never able to get creative with Whitester far we've had Fuzzy, Chuckles, The Baby, and Sweet Pea.
I bet she rules the house by the end of the month.

Congratulations! And congratulations to Miss Kitty for finally arriving in her new and loving home. It is such a happy day when a lonely cat finds her place in our lives and hearts. I can't wait to hear all about her settling in and becoming one of the family. Hugs and Purrs to all!

Schmoo is cute, but hardly separates her from her new brothers. PURRhaps something more feminine is in order.

What about Serephina, and you could just call her Sere (pronounced Sara) for short? You could still call her Serephina Schmoo as a nickname, too!

I hope she settles in soon.
