Six days ago, I went to pick up the kittens -- and came home with Mama Cat as well. Though I hadn't banked on 3 cats, and wasn't really sure I wanted that many, she's been a great help in keeping her offspring safe, fed, and happy; and so by now, she's more than welcome. I still can't believe her previous owner decided she wanted rid of her as well, as she had previously stated she loved her to bits. That's people for you.
Before she came to live with me, her name was Shine. It took me 4 days to decide what her name will be going forward: Zillah. I like the sound of it, think it matches well with Pax and Izzy's names, and I hope they'll all soon respond to my individual calls for them.
