The New Siamese Kitten is Home!

He is such a beautiful little seal point Siamese kitten. His eyes are that bright purpley/blue color. I will take a picture when he is less freaked out. We don't have a name for him yet. I do like Jupiter. After he got lost in the house and we looked frantically under and behind everything. He went behind and under one of the nightstands next to our bed. I didn't want him loose in the house until he was settled in for a few days. I feel pretty bad. I now have him in one of the bathrooms with food, water, and sandbox. I made him a bed in the opened up cat carrier, so he would feel secure inside it, his own personal cave.

Chloe is a bit upset. They both met briefly under the bed and Chloe hissed. That is pretty standard for a cat. They are cats, not humans, and will hiss for a few days until the hierarchy is well understood by the newcomer. I know this, but I am still distraught. My husband and I are pretty stressed by all this and are knocking ourselves out making sure Chloe and "Junior" (his temporary name) are both feeling loved. If you have any advice, please leave a comment, I need some moral support right now.

I remember when Pooh-bah was about the same age that "Junior" is now, which is just over three months old, and Chloe first came to me at six month of age. Pooh-bah had already become accustomed to being the center of my life, then this saucy chocolate point entered the picture, trying to steal his limelight. After a few days, I went looking for them and I saw that they were both curled up in a shoe box together in my closet, I was overjoyed. That was almost 14 years ago.

Here is are photos showing the progress on my two projects: The Halloween pumpkin hat from the Ann Norling Fruit Hat pattern and the Filatura di Crosa cotton blend baby sweater.
