Introducing Tommy and Whisper

I took in two new foster cats last week. Both cats are very sweet and friendly, and they are slowly becoming accustomed to life here. This is Tommy - he is about 1 1/2 years old, and he is very playful. I am hoping as he gets used to the dogs, he will start coming out to be around me more, but right now he spends his time either in the cat's room or in Rachael's room.

This is Whisper - she is around 4 years old, and more laid back than Tommy. She bosses him around most of the time, and has claimed the bed in front of the window has her own, so she spends a lot of her time laying there and looking outside.

And since I had the camera out, I had to get another picture of Noelle.

She's so funny - a few days ago I gave her and Duncan each a raw carrot when I was preparing their Kongs (filling rubber toys with food and treats to keep them busy while I was gone). Duncan immediately ate his - he loves carrots - but Noelle decided that it made a better toy than a treat. She carried it off and started tossing it up in the air, then doing her cute puppy hop over to get it, and tossing it again. She was having a great time until Duncan finished his carrot and ran over to get hers. She tossed it up, he grabbed it when it hit the ground and took off running. She thought "oh good, a game!" and went running after him, as they usually do when they play chase and take toys from each other. But then suddenly Duncan stopped and turned around, and you could just see Noelle looking - where's the toy?! And there was Duncan, chewing as fast and furious as possible, until gulp - no more carrot. It was hilarious.

We had a few dogs adopted yesterday- one of the adorable puppies - Guinea - was adopted. Also Annie, a black lab puppy, found a new home. Hopefully we will also have some mid-week adoptions this week!
