Meet Dahlia!

Our newest member of the family! Dahlia is a beautiful, dilute tortie, Maine Coon! We were in Pittsburgh the other day picking up some groceries and then headed over to another shop to buy some bird seed for the outdoor birds (for my photo-taking obsession), when we saw her. She was surrendered to the NW PA Humane Society after having lived with a family for a year until someone had allergies. The minute I saw her and she saw us, she walked up the the front of her cage and meowed, then sat so pretty, just staring at us with her beautiful eyes! We were smitten at once! We knew then and there that she was going to be the perfect addition to our family.She's been absolutely amazing during her first two days here. She's already sleeping under the covers of my mom's bed! For the next week I think we're going to let her have the third story, where she can meet Merlin and Puddy through a screen door, until we feel it's time for them to meet beyond the door. Just to be on the safe side for all kitties considered. Puddy will probably absolutely scoff at the idea of another cat, and a female one at that. Merlin will probably become her best friend if she lets him. It'll be interesting!

Thanks! She's just the absolute sweetest! The boys are eating on the other side of the door from her safe room...they haven't formally met yet. Always a scary time!
