Introducing "Dusty"...


I did it ... I got myself a new kitty!!! My weekend trip to Pennsylvania was fantastic - I got to hang out with my family and see my grandparents - although I got very little rest. One of the MANY highlights was meeting the four kittens who were living in the shed in my Dad's back yard. My Dad and Stepmom have socialized (and litter-trained) them - and all four were very sweet. But when I met them I was immediately drawn to the smallest and shyest one - a female. And "Dusty" is the one I took home.

The trip back wasn't easy. I had Dusty in a cat carrier, and she only cried once or twice - but she was obviously scared. Especially when we got to noisy Penn Station in noisy NYC. We jumped in a cab - and headed to my apartment.


Oscar (the kitty I've had for 11-12 years) greeted us at the door - and he immediately hissed. He was NOT happy to meet his new sister.

Speaking of sisters - the picture below is Dusty (top) with her two brothers (black), and her sister (black and white)...


And here is when I knew that Dusty was coming back to NYC with me - when I took this picture of her in Dad's shed. How could I resist?!?...

Congrats! Dusty is very cute! I want a Yorkie so bad, but I can't have pets where I'm currently living. One day.

Beth said...

She is so adorable, and reminds me so much of our Sheeba when he was a youngster. Black cats are considered good luck in voodoo, did you know that? I hope Dusty brings you much good luck! I hope Oscar comes around, too...are they checking each other out? Oh, I just love kitties! XOXO Beth

Is she a LOLCAT?

Congrats. Dusty is gorgeous! I'm glad you had room for one more. I'm sure the brother sister jealousy will pass in a few weeks.

Dusty is the luckiest kitten for being 'dopted into your home. Oscar will eventually give in to her charms, it just may take a while. And not to be all lecturery but please remember to have her spayed. :-) Behr Hugs and chin scratches to Dusty!

Aw!! Dusty looks like our family of cats (down to one). Oscar will just have to get used to his little sister.

Hope Dusty has survived day one, very adorable, and like Beth said, very Sheeba looking. May you have a kitten curl up on you neck tonight.

Hello kitteh!

Joy said...

She's adorable! Keep us posted on how Oscar adjusts to her and how she takes over the house! I like her name.

All those kitties were so cute! This is making me want one, but Brigit won't have any of it.

Aw, Dusty is adorable!! Give Oscar a few days; I'm sure he'll come around and accept his new sister.
