So we ended up not getting the cat burglar cat (Marge). Instead, while Mucca was away in New Brunswick for a week-long union convention, I met up with a cat we'd talked to one of the rescue agencies about, and looked at a few others (in from Saskatchewan! apparently that is a thing they do when there are more homes for cats on the coast and more cats in the prairies?). Settled on the lovely, lovely kitty from Cat's Cradle Animal Rescue. Her name is currently Marie but we're tossing around various other names for her.

She's a very brave cat, because immediately upon coming into our possession, she had to deal with an hour on the helicopter! (Usually it is not that long. Fog forced a detour. Even the humans were a bit grouchy by the time we got home.) She started going at her spay incision site (which had been mostly, but not entirely, healed up), probably from travel stress. Mucca's been detailing that on her blog, but I just wanted to post this ADORABLE picture. The home-made cone of shame + the little stretchy sock (sleeve of old long-sleeved tee) to further keep her from scratching turned out to give her a bit of a superhero look. Mucca's brother says it looks like we realized at the last moment that we didn't have a cosplay outfit for her:

red cone, blue sock, black kitty

Isn't she a darling? Look at that floof of a tail! It's like a cartoon kitty (Aristocats, anyone?). She's sweet-tempered and loving and friendly and adventurous, and I can't wait for her to feel a bit better so she can explore the house and get to play with her new toys (and humans).

Aforesaid brother arrived this morning with a whole kit of first aid supplies for her, including a proper transparent plastic cone. So she can see better now, and no longer looks like a superhero. Probably more comfortable, though!

KITTY! <3
