Tvluver, I'm sorry about your kitty.
Phunkycat, Lily is so pretty, and so well upholstered! That picture makes me want to pet her.
I am happy to report that the new kitty, Zippy, has been out of cat jail for a couple of weeks now, and the idea of only short visits to start with worked great. She and Rocky are getting along great, and we're all happy. It's hard to believe Zip is nearly 10 years old, though, because she's one fast moving, running, jumping kitty!
I've been trying to get a picture of the cats rassling like kittens, but haven't been able yet; I do have a couple of good pics of them together though.
Also, to whoever was asking about pets and leather furniture...notice the quilt hanging over the back of the sofa. It looks like hell (as does my carpet! ) but it's the only way I can avoid having lots of scratches on the sofa--and my cats don't even have front claws. They do it jumping up and down and playing, not clawing the furniture.
