Well, it went from wanting a new dog to getting a new kitten. This makes the older cat (Kirby) much happier and the dog (Cricket) very confused (he cannot figure out why the kitten won't play with him because the other cat does). His name is Tails (named after the fox character from the Sonic the Hedgehog games). We figured since Kirby was named after a video game character, the new one should be, to02o (I'm going to leave that typo, because it is Tails' fault...he just walked across the keyboard). Right now he is on my lap meowing his crazy head off because I won't let him on the keyboard.
He is grey with a white moustache on his upper lip, white toes on the front feet, and white halfway up the hind feet. He is almost identical in personality to our other cat, which is fantastic! Both are very aggressively friendly ("Pet me NOW!"), boh like to lick fingers, both HAVE to be were ever we are, and both like to sleep at the head of the bed. They are both even talkative!
It's like Kirby part 2!
