Her name is Suki. Suki means "love" in Japanese. I found her at the Morris Animal Refuge in Center City Philly a week ago, and brought her home on Friday evening. She's a black and white "tuxedo cat", about a year old and was brought into Morris as a stray. She is VERY affectionate, purrs, kneads and "talks." It's a bit like having a toddler - she wants to investigate EVERYTHING, so I've had to move a few things out of her reach. We've spent the weekend bonding - I think it's working since she doesn't want me to leave the room. She slept sort of wrapped around my arm.
Our only issue so far is that she does not approve of the food selection. She has suggested [several times] that I should give her canned cat food instead. This is not going to happen, however. I did bring her a bag of Iams Kitten Food to try, but she still says that's not quite it. Oh well. She'll eat when she gets hungry enough.
I would love to show you a picture of her, but my new Canon Digital camera is now scheduled to be available June 8th. Not holding my breath of course, since it was originally supposed to be here in April. But when it does arrive, I'll take some kitty pictures.
Things have been very, very busy at work. I was up in Boston last week and New York the week before. Stayed in a really neat hotel in New York called "The Library." It is a small hotel (60 rooms) near Grand Central Station, and each of the floors is based on the Dewey Decimal system. Each room on the floor is themed according to one of the Dewey subjects. I was in the "Philosophy" room; my companions were in the "World Culture" and "Zoology" rooms. The hotel has a huge library where they serve breakfast in the mornings and wine and cheese in the evening.
Sorry for not posting much for the past couple of weeks. I discovered [the hard way] that I was out of storage space on the website's server. I'm in the process of changing servers but until that happens I've had to remove a few things to make room for posting. Hopefully everything will be switched over in the next couple of days.
Update - Sunday, June 2nd, 2002, 6:07 p.m. Suki ate the new dry food. Success!
