Betty

We're hanging out in the spare room with our new kitty, Betty, right now. We picked her up earlier today from two of my co-workers who volunteer with the Billerica Cat Care Coalition. Betty was rescued from a feral cat colony near the Wal-Mart in Tewksbury last fall. She and her kitten, Widget, both had upper respiratory infections, and Betty had pneumonia as well. I met Betty and Widget at a "meet-and-greet" at the local Petco when Kris and I were shopping back in December. They were a package deal, so as much as I liked Betty, I was really sure we didn't need 3 cats. I ran into my co-worker who was fostering her a couple weeks ago, and she said Widget had just been adopted separately. So we applied for Betty and now she's chilling in Ed's lap because she's kind of nervous.

These photos were taken a while ago for her PetFinder profile. We'll post some new ones later. She's gorgeous! She looks like she could be Lola's sister. Which I guess she sort of is now. :)
