New addition  
Kaylee was lonely.

Meet her new sister.

Minuet is about the same age as Kaylee, and seems to be feisty enough to be able to hold her own against Kaylee's attempts to be ALPHA.  She's also lovey enough to be the lap cat Jen wanted -- at least, that's the appearance.

We'll see how things go with the acclimation process.  Hopefully the two of them will get used to the new situation quickly.  In the meantime, Minuet is locked in our bathroom with her own food, water and litter.

Jen just called through the door that Minuet kneaded on her -- this is definitely a good sign.

This may seem very rushed, but Jen had the whole thing very well thought out. We're not going to pretend that it isn't spontaneous or even mildly impulsive, but the loneliness was real on the part of Kaylee, Jen, and myself. This is NOT an attempt to replace Lilly, which we all know is impossible. It is, however, just what it looks like - a cat to help fill the emptiness left in all of us when Lilly passed.

What a little beauty.

The people that love you will never question this. I hope you're not trying to convince yourself that it was the right move, because this little one needed a home and she now has one, with people in need of love. No one will ever replace Lilly - but the heart has an infinite capacity to love, and I'm sure Minuet will be another friend and family member soon.

Raina and Diego salute the new addition to the family and I send a pat.

Clearly you need to be kneaded. Congratulations on the addition. I can't wait to meet her!
