There is a new kid on the block, and she arrived yesterday. Her name is Toulouse which is the name given to her by her previous "mother", and it is just as lovely as she is, so we certainly will not change that.
She seems to be comfortable around her new family, and we are so happy to have her. She is playfull, curious and very sweet, and her harmonic presence already brings out the zen buddhist in me. She took a nap on the couch in my room earlier today, and listening to her dreamy sighs made me realize how much I have missed the company of a cat the past eight months.
I also find some sort of contentment in not being the only "she" in the house any longer. It feels good to have the female energy boosted a bit in this family. Haha.
