Honestly? I couldn’t care less about style or fashion right now. Here’s why:
This is Harriet. She is 11 weeks old. Her mama got hit by a car and she was fostered with two of her sisters until we brought her home Sunday morning. She’s a gray tabby, but looks like she’s got some orange spots worked in there, too.
Harriet has two settings: Turbo and Asleep. This is why most of the shots of her awake are slightly blurry. Little girl is FAST. When she sleeps, she sleeps hard and will stretch out in hilarious directions and wad up into unbearably cute configurations. (You see her snoozing on our bare mattress because Sunday was sheet-washing day.) She is more Asleep than Turbo, but when she’s on, look out. Nothing is safe from her curiosity. See a short video over on FB.
She purrs loudly. About 80% of the time just generally, including while zooming around the house chasing toys. If she is not currently purring, touch her to activate her motor. She purrs while sleeping.
As you can see, Simon is reserving judgment at this point. He mostly tolerates her, although there has been some hissing and growling. She keeps trying to check him out and nuzzle a bit, so we’re hopeful that it’ll just take a few days for them to warm up to each other. He has made some extensive investigations during her Asleep periods, and I believe he thinks she smells pretty good. So fingers crossed.
Now if you’ll excuse me, Turbo Harriet just knocked something over in the dining room …
