This afternoon we welcomed Vanilla to our family, a purebred Siamese weighing in at 9 lbs 4 oz.  Her colouring reminds us both of vanilla ice-cream and of pure vanilla.

Actually Vanilla adopted us first by following us home from the park last week.  We brought her to the humane society but her owner never called to claim her so we took her back today.

She’s playful, letting us pet her, even purring.  She hasn’t met Soirée yet, and I’m not sure Soirée even knows she’s around.  We’re keeping Vanilla in the basement for a few days until they can get used to each other’s scents.

The kids are very excited (goes without saying), especially since she followed them home from the park!  They don’t realise of course that this has lowered the chance of getting a puppy any time soon…  🙂
