I grew up with only dogs so this was quite the revelation. We got our new baby girl, Athena, last night. She is a beautiful black, 6 month old cat, with big round eyes. She is adorable and I can't stop following her around, and neither can Houston. Poor guy, he is just trying to figure her out and she won't let him get close enough to sniff her. She's a little unsure of Houston but she had no problem making herself at home on our bed about 20 minutes after we let her out of the carrier. Let's be honest, it is the most comfortable place in the apartment and cats have a high standard of living. Anyway, I love her and I think Houston might even be a little jealous. But I'm not choosing favorites, I swear.
