Another one saved.....

I have not blogged in a while....I have been busy getting my classroom ready and tending to the thousand responsibilities our District feels need attention (or education as we know it will fall apart and the collapse of Democracy as we know and love it will follow......blah, blah, blah).

Soooo....now I am here....and am ready to write....

Have you noticed the changes on the side of my blog??? Huh, have ya....have ya....??? Well it is a small nod to our newest family member....

We have a new kitten in our midst....a rather small, raggedy, black kitten. Her mother is a feral cat....who was in the process of giving birth in somebody's garage. During her "birthing moment" a person entered said garage and startled her. Momma cat managed to deliver one kitten before she ran off....this little waif was taken to our vet's where she was hand fed and nursed from then on...A notice announcing her was put up, but nobody seemed to want her...later on my hubby and I came to the aforementioned office to pick up some meds for one of our cats and we saw that poster.....

Well...you know the rest....she is now here.

Her name? B'Elana Torres Merryweather Tapal....and due to the way she was brought up she is one of the most people-friendly, well-adjusted cats I have ever met....my husband's dog has managed to adopt her and when asked, "Belle, where is your baby?" goes to look for her! Woe unto the individual who messes with her....Momma Belle comes to her rescue...which is just as well, since Chakotay plays too rough with her and our other cats (with cats being what they are) really don't want to have anything to do with her.

Does B'Elan care? Oh heck no!!!! She is too busy being the Family Clown to notice...and that's OK with us....

Welcome to the clan, B'Elan! Love it that Bella is Mama. What's the story behind this name?
