At Least I Think It's Patrick
I brought home my new little kittymate for Coco today. He is a buff tabby, and for now, I have decided to name him Patrick, in honor of his March adoption. He is a little older than Coco, but very playful, so I am hopeful they will make a great team.
So far there has been a lot of hissing on the part of the resident housecats, and lots of approaches by Patrick who does seem to be quite a confident little fellow. He is also very vocal and chirps and meows at nearly every advance.
I think he's going to be a big cat as you can see from how long he looks.
Here, she is settled into The Box, which still sits in the living room after I unpacked my new computer chair.
I suspect it will take a day or two for things to settle down here, but so far I am impressed with Patrick's social skills.
We had several inches of snow during the nor'easter and for t while things were white and coated. But by yesterday afternoon it was already starting to melt and today, with temperatures edging up towards 50F, most of it is gone.
The horse boys seem most unimpressed with the snow and spent quite a bit of time in their stalls. I guess winter weather gets to them after a while too.
I am going to have to do some serious grooming soon as they are starting to shed. As most horse bloggers have noted, that is one of the surest signs of spring ever.
