    TINKER PHOTOS, Post 23! Please welcome our new family member: TINKER!

    Last Sunday (October 11) I took a drive out to the Happy Hearts Feline Rescue in Manchester, about 15 miles away. And a new kitty, Tinker, came home with me!!!

    She's a brown/black tabby lady, eight years old. She lived with one man for a long time, I guess since she was a kitten. Then two years ago, he passed away. His ex-wife didn't want her, so she (ex) gave her (Tinker) to the vet. He's the one who takes care of the Happy Hearts cats, so he asked Happy Hearts if they'd take her, and they did. She lived there for two years.. until last Sunday!

    Here's her picture from the shelter's web site:

    I took a lot of photos a couple of days ago. After I get them over onto the computer, I'll post some here.

    She's a real sweetie, friendly and full of confidence already. She and Sparkler are still working out their relationship and interaction. Still at the occasional low-growl stage, but no overt hostilities. They've been pretty much keeping away from each other.

    Pat, she looks like such a sweet kitty - Congratulations to both you and Tinker for finding each other!
    I hope Tinker and Sparkler will be friends soon, and all will go well.

    I look forward to see more pictures when you get them posted. For now, take your time to get to know her.

    Things appear to have settled down between the girls this evening, much more quickly than I'd thought they would! Sparkler seems to be back to being her normal self, and Tinker is exploring all over. (I have many things I'm going to have to move around or conceal, because unlike Sparkler or Galaxy, Tinker can and does go everywhere.) Earlier they were both resting nearby, Tinker on the floor next to my chair here, and Sparkler on the floor maybe six feet away. No growls or hisses, that I could hear anyway.

    I am happy for you and your new friend. It is great and pleasant when a person finds a pet for himself and the animal feels great in a new home. I don't understand people who take an animal and then kick it, mock it. When an animal is taken but why. It seems to me that taking an animal is not much inferior in responsibility with the decision to have a child. In both cases, it is a responsibility.

    MEOW!!!, Kay!

    You're absolutely right, Kay. Adopting an animal is as much a responsibility as having a child. No matter which, he/she is a member of the family.

    Thank you!
