Our Newest Family Member!

Saturday Mom and I went to the grand opening of the  Silver Willow Gallery where I have some photography.  The Gallery was supporting a local organization Forgotten Felines who are dedicated to educating the public about feral, stray, homeless and abandoned cats and providing access to low-cost spay/neuter services and helping to get them into adoptable homes like mind.

Which is where we found who was at the time named Olive.  Who was pretty quiet at the time and now has proven differently.

So meet Maggie.....
She is about 4 1/2 months old and is a medium long hair tabby.  She is very sweet and eats with vigor and a purr, she is feisty and has no problem defending herself from Dexter who is now her older brother.  Dexter is giving her a run for her money.  Keeping an almost constant eye on her.  There is about a year between them.  I am hoping he will ease up on her and just be her big brother.  She is more curious than he is and she likes to explore high places.  Unlike Dexter who sticks close to the ground.  Dexter is an awesome mouser, which is why we got him in the first place, but I don't think Maggie will ever find how good she can be, because Dexter chased them all away.  They have pretty different cat personalities and maybe different enough to balance each other out.  I actually caught them sleeping on the same dog bed together.
Oh I should point out that she is handling the dogs quite well with that infamous black cat raised back and hiss.  Which is slowly starting to go away.  Except for Blu who has those ice blue eyes which can be intimidating at times.  The dogs are doing ok with her.  No problems there.

Here is a recent photo of Dexter


Have a great weekend and enjoy your pets!
Gillette's Castle coming soon.
