New Kitty emerges from the carrier for the first time.

So far, so good. Old Kitty and New Kitty may not be best buds yet, but so far there’s been a lot less hissing than Vic and I feared. We had been concerned because Hobbes has never been Old Kitty before, but he seems to be settling in to the new normal. Still, the first overnight will be the real test, I think.

As for naming the newest member of the family, we seem to have settled on Boomer. Yes, it’s a Galactica callback, but oddly enough it was Vic’s suggestion. We tossed around a bunch of ideas–Zippy, Streaky, Brangelina–but Boomer kept floating to the top.

One of the things we realized a bit late was that our new cat bears an uncomfortable resemblence to our old girl, Cupid, albeit brown instead of grey. We’d intended to avoid choosing a kitty that looked too much like our late and still lamented friends, but somehow managed to do it anyway. Must’ve been the lighting at PetSmart.

On the other hand, it made “Boomer” that much more appropriate, as her Cylon namesake is one of many nearly-identical models. So, Boomer it is.

And, as I sit here in the basement blogging, I can hear Boomer booming around the living room.

Already a lap cat.

So, Boomer? How are you liking the new home?

Hmm. I’ll pretend I didn’t see that.
