Actually, two new furiends! ;-)
As I mentioned about a month ago, I've been considering the possibility of a kitten or two to add to our family. My hope was that a kitten wouldn't be as put off by Homer's unusual face as an adult cat might be, and that two kittens together would give Homer some outlet for all that playfulness he still has at 15 (!!!) while also having each other for those times when Homer's energy level isn't quite as high as a kitten's. I also hoped I would be able to find a "special needs" kitten who might not be considered as adoptable as other kittens, and who would benefit from the devoted level of cat worship we're prepared to shower on pretty much any feline that crosses our doorstep.
As anybody who's ever rescued a cat knows, when it comes to cat rescue--ask and ye shall receive!
