Jolly Jack!

One month to the day after we lost our beloved Maybelle, thaitea and I brought home a new cat. He's a big, playful, black & white cat who's lived at the Treehouse cat shelter his whole life; we're the first real home he's ever had, and the workers there were overjoyed that he got adopted. He's shy and needs a good period of socialization -- which will be hard because he's so handsome, we're very tempted to pet him and dote on him, but also because Gus is VERY curious about him and keeps nosing around the door trying to get a look at him. He had a brother he palled around with at the shelter, so we're hoping when two weeks are up and we can finally introduce them, they'll be good pals.

His name is Kirby, and I have decided not at all arbitrarily that he is named after legendary comic book artist Jack "King" Kirby. Like Jolly Jack, he is beloved, intelligent and playful, but unlike Jolly Jack, he spends a lot of time sleeping behind a toilet.

Here's a look at the King:
