Subject: Update on Penny

I adopted 7-year-old Penny yesterday and she has made herself at home as if she's always lived here.

We live in a large old house, and I showed her only once where her food/water is placed and the rather out-of-the-way place the litter is kept, and she had no problem finding them again.

Penny wandered around this big house yesterday, exploring all the nooks and crannies and access to windows, but she was never nervous or wary. When she had satisfied her curiosity, she settled down on the blanket you see in the attached picture, happy to keep an eye on us from a comfy place. She doesn't like to be picked up, but does like to be invited to jump on a lap, where she'll snooze for as long as the lap is in the chair. :--)

I've had cats in my life ever since I was a child, and with the death just a couple of months ago of my 18-year-old girl Frisky to kidney failure, I was missing the thump and

sensation of a cat jumping and walking on the bed. Penny filled that void by sleeping most of last night with us.

I just want to let you know that Penny is doing very well and is already a loved, and becoming spoiled, member of the family. She's already been introduced to the benefit of waiting patiently for my husband to finish his nightly bowl of ice cream, for when he's done, the bowl goes on the floor for her to lick clean.

Your "shelter" is wonderful. You do a wonderful job, and I know from my experience of working with Robin's Nest Cat Rescue and Adoption in Niskayuna, that it's not easy.
