Introducing Lady Benezia

November 1st, 2008 · by sarra · 5 Comments

Alex got a new kitten today. Her name is Lady Benezia.

The New York Kells were visiting for a few days, and on Thursday while I was at work they stopped at the PetSmart to look at the kitties up for adoption. There was a cute gray tabby there that they all took an interest in. Alex filled out an application, but the agency was understaffed and told us it might be a week before they could get back to us.

Today we went by there again after lunch to see the kitties, and there was another agency set up as well. They had two adorable Lilac Point Snowshoe Siamese kittens. (UPDATE — She’s not Siamese and not Snowshoe! Both of those are breeds. Nor is she a lilac point! In fact, she is a blue lynx point and white domestic long hair. The blue point part means the grayish coloring is blue — too dark for lilac. Her foot pad colors don’t match, so that’s the “and white” part. The lynx point means there are some tabby genetics involved that create the M pattern on her forehead.) We went inside to meet the tabby. She was sweet but quite skittish. We came back out to meet the Siamese (edit – Blue Lynx Point DLH), and we were all taken with Lady Benezia (nee’ Bridgette).

The interview was short, as it was clear that we were going to provide her with a good home. We brought her home this afternoon.

    I’m afraid you may have to brush her.
