New member of the family...

Given the number of abandoned and stray animals in Mexico, I was sure it would only be a matter of time before we added to our gato family. I didn't think it would be quite this soon, however. Two nights ago, we were having dinner at our favorite beach restaurant, about a 1/2 block away, and Jerry spotted a little black kitten under a nearby table. Turns out that the chef had found three little kittens thrown away beside the road in a bag and rescued them. He has been taking very good care of them, but was happy to adopt one out. So after Jerry cuddled this little fellow for awhile, we brought him home. He has settled right in, and the other cats are tolerating him remarkably well. The chef had already named him "Negro", so that is what his name will remain, I guess. Very sweet and affectionate little kitty. And very happy to have a new home. Only in Mexico - in the US, kitties are not allowed to sleep under tables in restaurants. One more reason we are glad to be here!
