With the exception of a late afternoon hair appointment and a few errands, I got to spend the majority of the day with John, FiFi and Bob Cat for the first full 24 hours as a new family. All in all it went well. No one got snarly or hurt, and in fact, the animals do well together! Bob Cat tells you he likes you by headbutting you, which is what he has done now to all three of us numerous times. Feefer responds to him by giving him kisses. When Fee and I took our walk this morning, Bob Cat waited by the door, meowing, until John distracted him, and then when we returned, he came down to greet us. Tomorrow we are having a party so people can come and meet him!

Bob Cat's Homecoming
This afternoon after my chores were done with the day, I swung by our place, picked up the Feefer, and together we went to collect our newest addition to the family, Bob Cat, at the SPCA. He was kept there for a little longer than we expected because of a respiratory infection and a bacterial infection in his intestines, both of which were very common amongst shelter cats, from which he has completely recovered. We took him home, and since then we've been watching them interact, play, and conspire to make mischief. I think this is going to be very very good!

How To Help
A nice sized list of all the organizations cooperating to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina can be found here. (They're asking to send money rather than supplies.)
