'Ello Oliver!

I've already posted a photo on Facebook, but hardcore kitten fans can see more here. I had to put faithful Jack down on March 16, and was sure I couldn't get another cat for a long time. But as life carried on, it became immediately clear that the other cat of the house, Eli, was used to having a buddy. He became impossible, for a bunch of reasons that cat owners would understand. Enough biting, shredding, jumping, and annoying behavior moved up the "Get-a-Kitty" date rather quickly.

So here he is, all of 8 weeks old. A couple of friends have this sort of kitty (Persian/Himalayan mix), so my housemate surfed the 'net and found one born March 9 -- a week before I lost Jack.

He's very friendly, floppy and so flippin' cute he doesn't seem real! I may become one crazy cat lady. Tough luck, folks. I'm a goner....
