Introducing Tinker

Last week, much to my hubby's disappointment, we added a new member to our family.  This is Tinker.
Tinker was a resident at our local Humane Society.  She is two years old and an even deeper ginger than she looks in this photo.  The first couple of days were a bit difficult.  She was very loving and all, but LOUD!  Hubby pointed out that he thought she was in heat.  WAIT, all the paperwork and the longstanding policy at the Humane Society said spayed.  So, I took Tinker back on Saturday terrified that it was a botched job and we were going to have to get a different cat.  Well, the bad news was that yep, our spayed cat was definitely in heat.  Good news, our spayed cat was not spayed!  They kept Tinker and 'fixed' that little problem.  I picked her up again yesterday, a bit out of it and less than thrilled with the world, but ready to live with us always.

So what do you think?  Is she just strange enough to fit perfectly into this family?  

For those of you concerned about Edgar, he is fine and right now Tinker is so out of it that it is a great opportunity for him to show her 'who is boss'.  That is what he is telling me anyway.  He also asked me to make certain he didn't get weighed down with glitter again, 'just to be safe'.

Get Inky!
