Arrival Story:
I was debating getting a second cat, and my then-boyfriend insisted that if we did, it had to be a kitten. I stopped into a pet store to price kitten supplies and it turned out to be an adoption day! I would have been able to make myself wait until my bf and I could choose one together, if I hadn't noticed a scruffy-looking one-eyed kitten. Who could resist? She was so friendly when I picked her up that I could never let her go. The woman fostering her was reluctant to let me take her, since she hadn't been spayed yet, but when I cheerfully agreed to leaving a deposit, refundable after the spay, she relented. Anya had a brother, adopted by another couple the same day I adopted her, but sadly he died young of a heart defect.

Anya was named after the character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer by the man I was living with when I adopted her (we were both fans). He hated the idea of a second cat, but she won him over rapidly, largely because she became fast friends with his dog.

Circe sheds a lot. I have longer hair than she does and I don't shed so much! Those balls of orange fluff she's leaving around are fun to play with, though.

Atalanta keeps petting me and laughing and saying weird things. Who's Andy Warhol? And what's supposed to be happening in fifteen minutes?

...she's been saying it for longer than fifteen minutes, too.


I couldn't believe my eye!

Hecate's standards are slipping. I think she's trying to make friends with the Orange One. Why would she do something like that when she has me? Even Molly likes Hecate, and Molly doesn't like anyone! I wasn't about to hop up on the futon with Her there!

I had to escort Atalanta into that little room this morning. It wouldn't do to let her go there alone, after all. While she was sitting on that weird hard chair I had fun climbing on her and headbutting her hand. I can headbutt really fast!
