We've been adopted

One week ago, a 4-year old came into our lives: (click the link for more pictures)

Serenity Blue (or Serenity, or 'Renity) is a gray ("blue" for the cat aficionados in the audience) domestic shorthair, with a white belly and socks on her feet. We were at the San Francisco SPCA looking at another cat on her hallway[1], when we heard an insistent "MEOW" from her room. We went over, and she won our hearts in no time flat.

She's a charming addition to our household;[2] in fact, she's one of the most even-tempered and loving cats I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. We're starting to learn how to get her to play, but for a while it was mostly lots of petting and attention. She's only woken us up in the middle of the night once so far. =] I'm looking forward to some fascinating times as we get to know each other.

[1] This place has to be seen to be believed. There are 6 hallways of cats, each with ~6-8 "rooms" off of them, holding 1-3 cats or 1-5 or 6 kittens. The rooms are spacious, and the volunteers are really great.

[2] The real reason we got a cat is that I've had this blog for years, and have been quite remiss in actually doing posts. Now I can join every other blogger in the world by posting cute pictures of my cat. It's very necessary.
