GD TNR’d* this gorgeous tortie girl and named her Laney.
(Edited to add: Actually, I misunderstood – GD says that someone else TNR’d her.)
GD said that she thinks that Lizzy is going to look a lot like Laney as she grows up (I agree!) and it turns out that Laney is a big ol’ snugglebug. GD’s going to attempt to transition her to being an inside kitty, so fingers crossed that that goes well.
Laney’s a smart girl – it looks like she picked just the right place to show up. She’s no dummy! 🙂
(Thanks for the picture, GD – and for being willing to take that sweet girl in!)

Saturday afternoon, we decided to finally put the screen door up at the bottom of the stairs and open the foster room door, so that the girls could have more room to run and play and flop down for naps. I expected that it would be a couple of days before Molly would even come out of the room, so imagine my surprise 20 minutes after we opened the foster room door to see her already at the bottom of the stairs. She sat there and watched Sugarbutt and Jake – who sat and looked at her – and then wandered back up the stairs.
Lizzy is the most freaked out by this new development, but if I sit down in the foster room, she comes right over to me. Molly and Pat really like to hang out in the pagoda cat tree in the hallway together, Stevie is usually somewhere around the cat tree, and Lita likes to hang out under Fred’s bed (but comes running if she sees me.) Lizzy spends most of her time in the foster room still, in the condo on the cat tree, but I’ve seen her out exploring the other rooms. I expect in another couple of days, they’ll all make their way to the bottom of the stairs to watch the big cats go by.
Dennis has asked to go upstairs a few times since we put the screen door up. He just goes up, checks things out, and comes back downstairs, most of the time. He’s pretty good about making his wishes known (he smacks at the screen door until we let him in or out). The girls think he’s DREAMYYYYY and follow him around and watch him sniff toys and check out their food. Yesterday afternoon I went up to hang out with the girls and, okay, there might have been napping involved. When he saw me going upstairs, Dennis wanted to go too. I ended up on Fred’s bed with Dennis, Lita, Stevie, and Molly. Lita and Stevie touched noses with Dennis briefly, but Molly could NOT take her eyes off him. It was adorable.
Speaking of Joe Bob, eight years ago he was with us as our foster. He was Moonman then, and he was with us with his sister, Moondance. We nicknamed them Joe Bob and Myrtle while they were with us. I don’t remember exactly, but I think he was adopted out and returned to the shelter. Then, at the end of January 2008, after we said goodbye to Spot, we adopted Joe Bob. So, it’s been almost 7 years since we brought him home for good. And he’ll be 10 at the end of June!
