It has taken me a while to pull out the camera and photograph our newest family member, Nanook (of the North, as christened by Sir Peter on the hottest day of the year. He has since rechristened her "Turd Face" for his private venting purposes.).
She is a long, lanky thing, scrawny and feisty and completely incorrigible. She came to us very tiny, only four or five weeks old, I think, and quite full of fleas. The fleas are gone now, but she hasn't lost those wonderful white whiskers over her dark face as she has grown.
Mia is a kinder, sweeter cat now that she has company. Nanook has replaced Piper as the recipient of Mia's playful urges, and most mornings we wake to the sound of the cats running from one end of the house to the other, having jolly great fun. I think Mia was homesick for her sister, and she is happier with a friend. She is also about three times Nanook's size, which made her skittish antics around the kitten down right hilarious when we first brought Nanook home.
I've been meaning to post something about the kitten for a while, but I am just now getting my steam back to return to normal. Just in time for a very busy month of travel and processing and shooting and appointments. This is me, hoping I will find time to rest!
