Space Invaders

You will not believe this, but an alien has arrived into my home:

This is the only sighting Ms. C has managed to capture on film so far. I am going to let her talk about the experience in her own words, because frankly, I don't know what to think.

***

Ms C: She came to us last evening, a friendly yet terrified-at-her-new-surroundings two-year-old kitty. She and Abby have not yet really introduced themselves to each other besides some hissing from a distance; so far what we have is an "upstairs cat" and a "downstairs cat."
She does not seem to be familiar with her given name, so Mr. R has named her Stygia (I call her Styggie). She was well cared-for in her previous home, although I think she is traumatized at the moment by missing her people who felt they could not keep her after the birth of their first child.

I'll share more pictures later, but I don't want to take too many right now because Styggie is obviously not settled in or comfortable yet.

How wonderful that you can take in Styggie and give her a good home! When my brother Tommy came to live with us, my mom kept him in the study for awhile. I think that helped us get used to each others smells. There was still hissing for awhile after we met but now we mostly have fun together while our mom is out hunting at a place called work.

We hope they will soon become friends. It's hard for both to make the adjustment.

Hello, Styggie. I am talking very quietly to you so as not to scare you, but I wanted you to know that you are welcome. We're all very friendly here and look forward to knowing you better.

Wow Abby, that was BIG news. Tell your mama to take it slowly with the introductions and let you guys set the pace. Styggie is very cute. We can't wait to see more pictures of her and you.
