Then there were two.

The dogs were grizzling tonight so I looked outside and sure enough, there was Noodlehead (the artist formerly known as Little Tabby Girl), waiting for her wet food. I slapped some on a plate and headed out to the porch with it and imagine my surprise when there were two little tabby girls out there. Looks like Noodlehead brought her sister to the feeding station. Which is fortuitous, because Noodlehead’s Sister is painfully skinny. Noodlehead looks positively healthy next to her.

Sister is pretty un-shy for a first-time visitor, I suspect out of desperation and hunger. She let me get to about three feet away, and take some pictures, which is way more than Noodlehead would do the first time we met. Clearly I am going to be up to my neck in little tabby and white girls. Also I clearly need to get to sorting through the products of my various crafty hobbies and listing them online in the hopes that people like them enough to give me cat money. Ahem.

But what y’all really want is pictures, right? Never let it be said that the Lady of the Manor did not deliver your desires, gentle reader.

Noodlehead and Sister, that’s Noodlehead on the right:
At left, a small brown tabby and white kitty noms on wet food like it's the first time she's seen food in weeks.  Her face is mostly white.  At right, Noodlehead, who is also a tabby and white kitty, but whose face is mostly tabby, turns to walk off.

Sister, caught in an indelicate moment (the sound of my camera and the flash were worrying her a bit):
A small tabby and white cat whose face is mostly white stares into the camera with enormous yellowy-green eyes.  She is definitely worried by the person with the box on her face.  A chunk of gooshy food hangs from her bottom lip.

Sister probably needs a better name, though, so I’m taking suggestions. Name a Manor Cat!

    Oh damn that’s one pretty, pretty cat. Well, two.

    She needs an elegant name. Eglantine.

    Another friend suggested “Emmaline” and I rolled with it. “Noodlehead and Emmaline” just sounded too good together for me to pass up. :)

    Oh, I agree. Noodlehad and Emmaline definitely work together! Love it! Fingers still crossed that you’ll be able to ease them indoors with a minimum of panic.
