We have a new family member. His name is Nelson (after either Nelson Mandela or Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, take your pick).
I'm a little shaky on the specifics here, but somehow, Julie got the two kittens up to Dr. Sheila for an initial exam, worming, flea treatment and all the usual for a first visit to the Doc, then she made it over to Colleen and Bruce's, where David and Elizabeth became new parents of one of the kittens and we became parents of the other.
Julie had called us and invited us to come over to Colleen's to have a look. I was a little reluctant at first, but then Colleen sent this photo, which kind of began the process of 'sealing the deal', if you get my drift. Dianna had taken the call, and just based on what she said from her end of the conversation, I got the feeling that she was more than open to the suggestion... Strange how that always seems to work, isn't it?

So, for now, Nelson's doing a lot of napping, eating, and chewing on our fingers and toes. He already knows where the litter box is, and what it's for. He knows where his bed is, and he is fast becoming a lap kitty. He's a good snuggler. For Nelson, things are looking up. For us too.
