In household news, Miss Ruthie Cat has acquired a couple of new nicknames (Myrtle the Turtle and Murphy (Brown)) for her "mrrrt" and "mrrrph" noises. She's a talker. (Actually, her foster mom the_xtina called her Myrtle as well. So that one's new to me.)
She has also decided that it's A-OK to join me on the bed in the morning. Lucy has changed her sleeping spot, but I don't think Ruthie is bothered all that much by Lucy. Now I have to look if I'm being groomed obsessively - she and Maggie are both lickers - and occasionally wrest her off because she's a big girl. Yesterday she and Maggie were having their morning beauty sleep 2' from each other with only the occasional Big Hiss from Maggie, but today there was a rumble that I had to break up.
(I have no idea what the real Spanish is for "tortoiseshell cats", but welcome correction.)
More later, I hope. Gotta get dressed and do some errands.
