You knew this was coming, right?  
Good thing she's sociable.

I really wish I had moved that damn broomstick in the background.

Pearl Grey

It's difficult to capture the color of her fur properly - most photos show her as too tan or too gray. The buff sections have almost a peachy tinge to them, but it turns sandy in most of the pictures that I've taken.

At some point in the future, when I have both electricity and money, I will probably be adopting a buddy for her. She's a good cat, but I think she's used to having more company than just myself. I also think she needs someone to play with - I'm good to a certain degree because I can fish the toys out from under the couch and provide crinkly paper bags, but a kitty companion would probably do a much better job of entertaining her.

I am not particularly worried about turning into a cat lady, but I am worried about me turning this gal into a neurotic nutcase. The idea of adopting a second cat isn't offensive or new, as I long debated adopting two kittens before I saw Pearl Grey. Introducing two grown cats to each other is going to be interesting, but Pearl is a friendly explorer-type cat, so I think she'd adapt pretty quickly. When I brought Pearl home, she didn't hide at all - once she checked everything out, she was quite all right. I will probably have to worry more about the second cat. But I guess I'll deal with that when the time comes.

Her coat, even if it's not 100% accurate in these pictures, is ridiculously pretty. And her eyes are even more stunning.

So pretty in the soft winter light
my cats are not so photogenic. whenever they hear the camera turn on, they stop being cute and usually go hide.

Re: So pretty in the soft winter light
I avoid using the flash, which seems to help. It also helps when they're distracted by something else and/or half asleep.
