    Poppaea is here now too - PICTURES, #9!

    Well, I made my trip to Dexter this morning.. left my camera equipment at the store to be evaluated, then spent a delightful hour chatting with Gretchen at the coffee-&-tea shop next door. Then I picked up Poppaea on the way home.

    Yes, she's here! I put her in the bathroom with Lavinia at first, but she is out already. Nobody seems fazed by her (though I don't think Bob has encountered her yet - he might get even crankier about yet another new one). I think she's easier blending in than Lavinia because she's nowhere near as active and in-your-face (and in-your-food) as Vinny is. She's quite easy-going and mellow.

    Just before I came to the computer to go on line, I was sitting on the couch. Poppaea came over and got up into my lap and started making biscuits on my chest! I think she knows she's home at last.

    I'm starting to think maybe I'll change her name (perhaps to Sabina [the original Poppaea's second name].. ?). Gretchen mentioned that Poppaea and Poppy might get a little confusing. And I'm already calling Lavinia Vinny for short, but I can hardly call Poppaea Poppy for short!

    I just took some pictures of her. She's another one who can tell when the flash is about to go off and shuts her eyes just in time. I got a few with slight squints, even narrower than Lavinia's. I'll upload some probably tomorrow and post them.

    Two New Arrivals Pat!
    I have a feeling that that calls for a Few AWA Mice in the mail. I think that Scrappy Two and Her Friends will insist on sharing their allopwance money, a small gesture considering that you have saved Two Little Cats!!!

    God Bless You Pat for caring

    I started trimming her nails this morning and discovered that some of them are so long and thick they are curving around to the paw pads.. one (at least) into the pad. Now, that's something that the vet should take care of, isn't it?

    Awww, hello, Poppaea and welcome! You are beautiful! I'm so sorry to read about your claws and I'm glad you have an appointment for a mani/pedi. That will make it easier for meowmie to care for them in future.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I'm just checking in here for an update- Phesina, how did Princess Poppaea Sabina Eugenia do at the vet? I bet her claws look much better now and I bet they feel better too!

    I forgot to say I LOVE the photo of Poppy! What a sweet upside-down kitty! Kisses to ALL your kitties!

    Yup, it sounds just like Papaya! In fact, when I told my sister about her, I said she's named NOT for the tropical fruit but for the ancient Roman character.

    I think her name is going to be Poppaea Sabina officially, just like her namesake. Then I can call her Sabina, or Beanie (Bini?) for short. Poppaea is too close to Poppy, and I already have one of those:


    Thanks for the Photoshop Express info. I will give that a try. I use a photo application called IrfanView, and I haven't been able to figure out how to lighten these last two bunches. Seems to me I did it in the past with IrfanView, and I don't know why I'm not figuring out now.

    Yes, she sure does have that Edwina look to her, doesn't she? I wonder if she also has Edwina's fashion sense.
