Well I finally did it. Max has been lonely for weeks since Boo passed and it took me a couple of months but I finally went down to the humane society to look for a new baby. I saw three cats yesterday and would have taken any one of them really but thought the kitten was a little too rambunctious for Max. Might put him over the edge. the 3 year old cat I saw was male. orange and white and gorgeous, very calm but he was formerly a stray and there was no way of knowing how he would get along with Max. Then I found her...She looks almost exactly like Max only about half his size. She nuzzled my cheek and that was it...... She was coming home! Turns out her owner died and she was in foster care because she had kittens but her intake record said she was such a love but hated being couped up. I told her no more sadness. She has a home now that loves her. And her and Max are doing great! I kept them seperate last night and exchanged blankets so they could get a wiff of each other. Today I let her out. I can tell she wants to snuggle right up to her new big brother but he is a little leary still, a little growling and an occassional hiss but before long they were sleeping about 8 inches apart. I keep petting him and telling him what a good boy he is being. They will be fine in no time. Sorry for babbling I am just so happy this all worked out. I was so nervous! I will post pictures when I get a moment!
