My New Roommate

A friend called me in March.  "We found this kittah.  She's really affectionate & needs a good home."

"Uh huh," says I.  "I don't know if I'm ready for another cat yet.  It's only been {gulp} 1 1/2 years since the Demon Spawn left us."

"Do you want to be my new mommy?" reads the caption to the pic that he posts on my FB wall.  This pic:

That's not playing fair, is it?  Boys & girls, I agreed to go meet her. So, um... guess who's living in my house & biting my double chin when she gets heck?

Yup.  It's Princess Diva.  Can you even stand how freakin' cute this cat is?

Hi Mommy!  I haven't been doing anything wrong....
Yes, indeedy.  She's over 6 months old, but the size of a 2-3 month old kitten due to malnutrition.  The vet says she probably will not get much bigger.  When we got her, the pads of her paws were peeling, the whiskers on one side of her face were singed, both ear tips were frozen, she had ear mites & a belly full of worms. 

Who could resist?

Yes, she's too cute for words! I can see why you couldn't resist. Daughter never asked if we could have a cat, she would bring a kitten home, knowing once I saw it I wouldn't be able to say no. ;)

I believe your new baby is from the "Snowshoe" breed and is considered a Tabby Point she is a cross between Siamese and American Shorthairs.
