She might be tiny; she might be timid; but somehow yesterday evening she spirited part of a guinea fowl carcase upstairs without us noticing. Fortunately I confiscated it before she came to any harm.

Black and white cats have all the evil.

That's intercontinental ballistic Mia.

No pix: she's too fast.

Yesterday upon the stair,
I met a cat who wasn't there.
She wasn't there again today:
I wish she would come out to play.

(Actually, it's not all that bad: Mia did come out to eat after 24 hours of hiding. And she's now shuttlin between under the futon in one bedroom to under the bed in the other.)

She's a monster!

I've a dozen scratches and actual bruising besides. The damage to my neck is really quite nasty.

We were only taking her to the vee ee tee for the second part of her vaccinations. It took three of us to get her cornered and in the cat carrier. She was a dream with the vet of course. And is now home and hiding.

At least, as of a fortnight ago, my tetanus jabs are up to date.

Our Mia's a cllimber, we find,
And a hider--both in and behind--
And she's eating her grub
Giving fingers a rub
And waiting to be unconfined.

And, meanwhile...

Outside on the landing is Ozzie
Who' lurking and listening, because he
Would woo her with flowers
And serenades for hours
And wants a sweet end to this story.

My offspring won't tidy for shit
And now hosts a cat in their pit.
Where nagging has failed
Little Mia's prevailed
And sorting's being done in a split.

We have a new cat called Mia
Who's suffering badly from fear:
She's locked in a room
In the deepest of gloom
And wishes that we'd disappear.

Meanwhile, Oz wants to make friends.

We've been debating the notion of a new cat for a bit (well, pretty much since Mr Socks died). We've got the stove done: we didn't want to get a new cat and settle it in by having strangers ripping bits of its new home out and bringing new bits in. Too disruptive!

Mr Oswald is so very lonely. I'm not a great substitute cat. I try. We do the sniffing noses and Flehmening; we sleep with one another; we chatter and grunt and do all the other cat noises. But I draw the line at sniffing bottoms and cleaning one another.

So we've been regularly checking the Blue Cross website and when we found Mia this week we thought we'd go and visit. She's tiny and shy and didn't come out to see us, but we think she's lovely--and won't threaten Oz. Were it not for a check up with the vet due this week, we'd've had her home withon the day. It'll be Friday instead.
