Thanks all so much who offered suggestions on naming the new kitten...  PYE short for pyewacket seems to be the one!  For now, we're calling it "she" but time will tell!  Once again, WE were chosen by this little ball of fluff!  Whatever am I doing with 4 cats?  She's settled down now... curled up in the cat carrier (much to her dismay at first) but she's a quick little one... and kinda want the other "kids" to get used to her scent, before we let her have the run of the house.  That, and don't want her gorging at the food bowl till she gets sick... who knows how long since she had much to eat, but both we and the neighbor had heard her over the course of two days.  In a while, I'll post a pic, but first have a disaster zone in the crazykitchen to deal with! 

Be well, but be crazy!

Stevie, you got a new kitten while I was gone? Too cool! BTW - in my house the answer to "why do you have 4 cats?" is "Because Steve won't let me have 5." lol

LOL!!! I had to PROMISE that there would be no #5!! She's such a little love... and a barrel of laughs, but that's what kittens are for? Be well!

Bless you for taking in that little bundle of fur. I saw the picture on the photos page. Beautiful! Makes me want another but my older cat hasn't yet adjusted to #2 who's been here almost 5 years now. And I'm afraid #2 is a bit agressive and would hurt a kitten.

my moose got me a snow-shoe siamese kitten, after my tuxedo female vanishede while we were on a vacation. i have never heard of a snowshoe variety...she says it's a newer breed. she resuced her from the animal control center...she was going to be exterminated. i took her to the vet, she had an upper respertory infection. the flea-bag is fine now after antibotics. i had to name her preety much at the vet's office. we only had her for 4 days...i named her death cab. the vet knew the band, the wife was was hilarious!

Kittens are one of the best things in life! Both my girls were rescues, I call them my "Good Luck Black Cats." They give so much love for so little effort on my part. If I still lived in a house I'd have more, but 2 is enough in an apartment. Thanks for taking her in. BTW - I love the name!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
