Who's in Spyro's Room?
Mom was acting all mysterious again. She got up way early and moved some litter boxes around and shut the door to Spyro's room after taking food in there. Then she took a PTU and left. After a long time, she came back with something in the PTU.
Spyro: It's another cat. One who snarls.
Karen Jo: I got a call from the Espanola Valley Humane Society yesterday. The shelter had another FeLV+ kitty and did I have room for her? I thought it over for a few seconds and said, "Sure." Herman's foster Mom and I went and picked her up this morning. Her name is Oja (O-ha) and she is two years old.
Oja: The lady came back again and sat down on the couch. After a little while I came out to see who she was. She isn't one of my people, but she's a nice lady. I loved all over her and she loved me back. She told me that this was my new forever home and that she was my new Mom. That's OK. I like her. She let me rub kitty-snot all over her face.
Karen Jo: You are going to the vet as soon as I can get you in to see if that drippy nose of yours is a kitty cold or allergies. It's completely clear and you aren't sneezing or coughing, so I'm guessing it's not too serious. I wash my hands and face after leaving your room, so I don't pass anything along to Herman or Spyro -- the giant kitties you saw.
Oja: They are scary. I am glad that I am in a room by myself.
Karen Jo: You will stay in this room by yourself at least until I get you checked out to make sure that you are well. You can stay in here as long as you like after that. You are scarcely any bigger than Emma was and I don't want the boys bullying you. I am guessing that Spyro would just want to play, but Herman bullied Emma a little and I don't want a repeat. I am hoping that with Spyro to play with, Herman won't consider bullying you to be worth his while.
Oja: That sounds like a great arrangement.
Karen Jo, Herman and Spyro: Happy Gotcha Day, Oja!
