She's heeeeere!

The much anticipated day is here. Ginger is now a member of the family. And as is true when any new creature joins the family there are adjustments to be made.
DS-12 loves and is annoyed by her. She is cuddly. This is great when one is in the mood to cuddle. Not so much when one want’s mom to get of the computer so one can play some obscure fantasy world game.
She is a charming little thing, very much like her predecessor. Difference I have seen: she likes to claw things. Not your gentle stretching out and easing a claw into the carpet, but bold-faces kneading.
She kneads the floor, the chair and the neck of whoever happens to be holding her. Since DS-12 tends to be the one holding her, he is also the one most likely to be clawed.
She is not above eating people food. While not an outright beggar like our cat sitting friend “Boo” she is not above asking for sliced sandwich meat, and eating it when offered.
Other than that, she seems to be a fine little animal.

Ginger likes people food, and she likes to claw things, Huh, imagine that! She is cute as can be and I hope she looses the clawing habit, but I won't count on it. The first time Bucky climbed the curtains in our living room was the day after I put them up. I should have gotten a set that already looked clawed. I am a firm subscriber to the Colleen Hall school of thought ie: choose carpet and flooring that already looks dirty, and of course it follows, choose curtains and upholstry that already look ragged. I believe the trend toward "eyelash" fabric was invented by following this rule. The other and correlating school of thought is choose things that cannot be damaged, ie stainless steel, titanium etc. Also a trend in home fashions at this time. She was years ahead of her time!

OOH, oooh oooh! We have matching kitties!!! My Sugar could be Ginger's twin, and had the same bad claw habits. In fact, she is the first cat I have ever *ever* owned to be declawed in the front. Tough decision, but she is much more user-friendly now, and my friends no longer call her velcro. Good luck with your little bundle of joy...
