Our first Freddieversary

Today marks one year since I brought home the ever-adorable Winifred (more commonly known around our house as “Freddie”), who was flown all the way from Houston, Texas, to Newark, N.J., by Amy Sisson, and ferried home from Newark to New York City by the steadfast Glenn Hauman. (Read the original blog post here.)

This was the wee kitten then:

This is the happy beastie today:

Kara and I remain grateful to our friends Amy and Glenn for making possible our adoption of this beautiful (if occasionally vexing) creature. Here’s hoping for many, many more years of feline companionship with the Freddie-Cat.

New Kitten in the House…

I’ve just arrived home with the adorable kitten from Texas, brought to me and Kara by the wonderfully generous Amy Sisson and ferried home from the airport by my ever-reliable friend Glenn Hauman.

The new kitten has been introduced to the litter box (important after being cooped up in her carrier since 5am), fed a big meal (crucial since she hadn’t eaten since last night), and is now vocalizing strangely and constantly while exploring the house. (Meanwhile, our other cat, Mister Puck, is cowering beneath the guest bed.)

The first photo is one Amy took after rescuing the kitten a couple of weeks or so ago. The second photo I just took as the kitten was prowling toward me across the guest bed in my office.

Isn’t she beautiful? She’s my new baby.
