Welcome to the Menagerie

So this happened today ...


Your legs make great scratching posts...
...and pillows

So I'm walking to the store (mostly in my own world) and this homeless lady asks me if I want a kitten. "Excuse me? Can you say that again?" "Do you want a curtain?" "A curtain? You need a curtain?" (I'm so confused)  ... "No, I said, do you want a *kitten*?" pointing into her cart ...

At first I misunderstood her and thought she was a bit off and asking about curtains (probably because I had blackout curtains on the brain). She proceeded to tell me about her situation and how she couldn't care for the kitten, that she found on Friday 13th, thought she wanted a companion, but a 6-7 week kitten definitely wasn't it.

After much hemming, hawing, and purring... Geez I'm a soft touch. Especially after she said she tried a shelter but was turned away because they were full. And the poor thing was almost dehydrated....
I think I will nap nao...
So, we're going to the vet tomorrow and I'll decide from there. Zoe is a bit perturbed that she doesn't have free reign of the bedroom right now, and Josh is trying to pick a better name than "Luna" (given to her by the lady). So far he has suggested "Bagheera" and "Kiki". So far Luna has eaten twice, had a little water, and proven that she can use the litterbox and jump or climb  at least three feet ...
I know you made me a nice bed in a box,
but your hamper full of clothes is more comfortable.
Maybe I should name her "Sasha Fierce".
