We were traveling, last week (hence my technical difficulty -- I had strictly limited access to the internet), and when I returned to the vet's to pick up Fiona from her week of boarding on Monday, they were actually holding a kitten for me in the hopes that I would adopt her. Meet Isabel!
How could I say "no" to a face like that? Isabel (aka "Izzy") is a headstrong little girl, about 12-14 weeks old. Found in the bushes outside the veterinary clinic, she was rescued and taken care of by one of the vets for just over a week. Her past history is unknown but she seems to be healthy and she certainly does let us know what she thinks. She's also extremely mild-mannered and loves to be held. Fiona is not particularly pleased with the intruder, but on the other hand we're not having any knock-down, drag-out fights. Occasionally, Fi will leap on Izzy and Izzy lets out a little sound like a squeaky toy. It's pretty funny.
Fi says, "This is FIONA Friday, remember?"
