And so, after a lunchtime foray to look for a cat, I got the call. Melody is mine! Muahahaha! She is currently exploring the bedroom. Mittens is in the living room, peering under the door at us. I figure I'll spend part of the night here with Melody and the rest of it on the couch with Mittens.
One thing that I find fun is that besides my usual character Lael, I usually play a character named Melodie. :) Karma? Or maybe Katma?
Melody has already submitted to a good cat petting and emerged purring up a storm. I think she'll be fine. Mittens will get used to her. He'd better; she comes fully armed!
