The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

Say hello to my little friend

We adopt a third cat, Athena Fairy Princess.

We decided that we’re spending way too little time and money on our cats, so it was time to adopt yet another one in order to make their herd a proper coven. Called the vet, and they had a female ready to be adopted.

Ah, yes, the name… I wanted to continue naming the cats after goddesses, but Andrea naturally suggested Fairy Princess as her name, so we decided to make things simple and call her Athena Fairy Princess.

She’s 3 months old, extremely lovable, has a loud purr, and is currently trying to figure out how to coexist with her two new sisters. Who are not thrilled whatsoever about this new addition to the household.
