Our new baby

Here is a picture of our tiny new furbaby. We call her?/him? Milagro (Miracle) because the poor thing was rescued from the middle of a busy street and was only seconds away from being squashed. He/she is very skinny and tiny right now, but that will change soon....

I think you must be right about that, QSis - I've been doing some googling on cat patterns/color and I'm learning that cats with three colors (calico tabbies) are almost exclusively female.

And Terry - Jerry is a true lover of little kitties. His big, gentle hands completely enfold this little baby and she feels so safe. And of course, so do I. And very lucky.

Thanks, everyone, for your encouragement and kudos.

That's what we're thinking exactly - "Millie." And of course, her full name will be "Milagra," since she's a little girl.
