Now that we've got a mascot

... we need to rethink how we're going to make fostering work.

We're pretty confident that Meow Meow will take well to visitors, given her generally mellow temper around other kitties at the shelter -- when I let her roam the floor of one of the kitty holding areas, she walked right up to the cages and put her nose between the bars. No hissing or posturing, just interest. That was one of the reasons we thought she might be a good fit for us, as we didn't want to have to stop fostering. (And of course, her boundless affection kind of melted me.)

But the logistics of keeping fosters isolated for the requisite quarantine period are a little complicated in our house, so we're working out the details. We also have human company visiting for the first half of August (so the spare bathroom would be occupied). Ultimately, this means we hope to have a new guest by the end of August.

Until then, we'll be posting regularly on Meow Meow's adventures, lavishing her with head scratches and belly rubs, and just delighting in having her as a new addition to our family. We figure she deserves a month with us as the sole object of our attention, too.

Now if I could just get her to look at the camera ...

You'll make it work when the time is right! And we'll enjoy Meow-Meow until then!
