Presenting Our New Cat, Bast

Okay, take a look at our new kitty, Bast. She usually looks happier and has these big eyes, but getting her to sit in front of me for a good picture wasn't easy. She's black, except one white spot on belly. We got her for free from a lady with kittens in front of the Petsmart on Hull Street in Midlothian, Virginia this past Sunday.

Yeah, I broke down and we took her home. It had been hot and humid that day, and took her a bit to get out of the sickly mood, but by evening she was bouncing around, playing, and wouldn't let me out of her sight with meowing if I left the room she was in. She's also a definite lap cat. She hissed whenever saw our older cat, Ripley, who only hissed back once, and this from my husband's lap Monday morning as if to show, "Yeah, I can do that too." Earlier today though, she followed me into kitchen and inched up to Ripley, but didn't hiss.

Anyway, now we are the happy owners of two cats, not one.

What a sweet little baby. I'm a huge pushover for kitties (hence, I have three) and will someday become the crazy cat lady in the neighborhood. :) Congrats on the new addition to your family.

OMG, adorable! She looks exactly like my new kitty, Topper, who turns out to be a boy. No white spot, though.

Oh Pam, she is adorable! And I love the name. My kitty was named Isis, so I love Bast.

With this influx of new kitties among friends, I'll have to grow a larger crop of catnip next year! LOL.
