Kitten anyone? Phantom comes to Pugsley.

This will be short. The same weekend of Hurricane Sandy, at the end of October, we were stocking up on (human) water and (cat) food, in advance of the storm, and what do you know it, a new little kitten found us, a rescue up for adoption at our local Petco, through the non-profit rescue operation, Cat Assistance.

He's a somewhat unusual breed with interesting markings, called a Snowshoe, which is a cross between the ubiquitous American Shorthair and a Siamese.

He's a dear, and a good match for our resident cat, Minky, in spunkiness and sheer ferocity, well, except, that is, when he becomes a total kitten monster and tries to terrorize her. As of this writing in January they still aren't quite getting along--yet, I say to myself, and perhaps I will write a few posts about my many (desperate) attempts to get them to make friends. In any case, here are a couple of shots, from the weekend of the hurricane that blew Phantom in, to live at Pugsley.

Oh, and while you're at it, you can lay your eyes on two more projects that our having (almost) finished the bathroom renovation created:  the need to lay carpet on the front stairs and the need to take up carpet in the upstairs hall. Add them to the list!
