Among other endearing traits, whenever we go out she waits patiently at the window for us until we come home. She's a very social, loving, patient sort of cat -- even when my 3 yo squashes her in one of his enthusiastic hugs. He calls her "my best friend".
As promised, picspam of our new kitty, a five-month old calico:

Isn't she lovely? )

The shelter folks named her Snickers, after the chocolate bar. Certainly her fur is all the colors of a Snickers wrapper, and my boys liked the name, so I guess we're keeping it.
I would just like to report that since I posted this message a week ago, I have written over 20,000 words.

Apparently the fear of the Editor is the beginning of all authorial wisdom, at least for me -- or the end of my authorial dithering, at any rate. And I am especially happy to report that after slashing Chapter Six and Seven to ribbons and rebuilding the entire sequence, it is a million bazillion quadrillion times better than the redundant, unfocused mess I had before. Plus, it now has one of my favorite secondary characters bringing the awesome in a way I didn't expect, which is always a plus...

Did I mention that today we also got a cat? Because we did, and she is lovely. I will spam you with pictures of her tomorrow.
