Another kitty in da house!

And this time it’s a real kitten, only six months old.  We’re fostering her for a while until we can find her a good home.  Her name is Sophie, and she’s a very sweet kitty.  Here’s a picture of her sleeping on her adopted mother’s legs:

I tried to get a picture of her asleep, but her little kitten ears picked up my approach!

So far, she seems to be getting along fine with our current 4 antisocial cats.  I think they more or less realize that she’s not here to take over and just wants to play.  She actually is of a similar size and coloration to our most antisocial cat, Zoe:

We’re holding out a little hope that Zoe and Sophie will decide to get along, though knowing Zoe it’s a bit of a distant hope!

Update: In a fascinating development, our cat Sabrina is actually learning from Sophie!  Sophie has been playing a lot with toy balls, batting them around and carrying them in her mouth.  Tonight, Sabrina started doing exactly the same thing, even though she’s never done it before.

    Aww. She looks sweet. Fostering kittens can be challenging at times, but it can also be a lot of fun!

    We just got a little tabby foster we named Cranberry (it being Thanksgiving and all).
