New Beginnings

While any who may have been following my spotty and poor blogging for a while, might be hoping for that title to mean something more, I’m sorry to dissapoint…

Those who know me, know that a month ago, we lost  family member.  Whisp, our 15 year old cat, who had been with us through thick and thin, lived with us on 2 continents, helped us through the death of our son, taught my wife how to love and live with cats, and been all-round awesome in every way, had to be put down.  He fought fiercely and bravely to stay at our side.  but died in our arms finally at peace.


That done, it sent our ‘kitten’ Eowyn(12 year old) persian/siamese cross into a bit of a tailspin.  she started showing more tabby than we thought she had.

It also hit us like an axe blow.

We had just started to talk about finding a new companion for Eowyn.  The clincher was seeing her reaching into the bird-cage trying to play with the Cockatiels (Penn and Teller) and almost get her finger nipped off.

Well, it turns out a young couple was given a kitten, told it had been weaned, only to discover that was simply not true and the needs of such a young animal was beyond them.

Well folks, say hello to a very young russian blue who is now named Tymora.  For those unfamiliar with the name ….


Named for the fantasy goddess of the fantasy world of Abeir-Toril.  Goddess of good fortune and adventure. The patron goddess of those who take risks.
