Introducing Tabitha

Tabitha I'm happy for you all to meet my new kitten, Tabitha (I actually had a different name picked out, but she insisted that her name was Tabitha).

As you can see, she's a greyish-brownish Tabby, and she's beautiful. She seems very self-confident and has a strong personality. She arrived late yesterday afternoon from Hazelton (in northern BC), where my one of my neighbours is working. If I hadn't taken her, she would have gone to the SPCA, so I guess you could call her an SPCA diversion :)

Right now, she's shy of Robinson, so I'm keeping them strictly apart and making sure that things are calm and non-confrontational. I don't care if it takes weeks for them to get used to one another. I managed to carry her past the room where R was confined behind a baby gate without her digging in her claws. They just looked at one another while I told them both how good they were. We'll keep on like that for a while, until I feel that she can come into a room with Robs on-leash, but that might be a few days yet. I hope they might become friends, but I want Tabitha to have a good life as part of the family and not be made nervous by R, so I will have to be firm and careful.

She and I have bonded, for sure. She chirrups when she sees me, and we've had several good cuddles already. And I spent some time this morning with her playing with her toy mouse. We're just going to have to do some very diplomatic division of time between her and Robinson.

Fantastic shot, especially the shade of the kitten's eye.

Congratulations
Such a very sweet kitty, and a lovely photo capturing her. My Tib has those bronze eyes too, they are very soulful.

I expect she'll be bossing Robinson around within a few months.

Pretty kitty! She's obviously taking the role of photographer's cat in stride.

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you! She is just a natural beauty. Good luck with the time-splitting between her and Robinson and with Robinson not getting too jealous. - She really is beautiful!

She's beautiful! I hope she and Robinson start getting along very soon. It'll be nice to have a kitty in your lives again.
