The Long Awaited Return of Cat Tuesday

We picked up Kaia on Saturday and brought her home to meet Emmy, who was not pleased.  After a lot of hissing, head bites, and stand-offs/staring contests though, Emmy has finally relaxed enough that she can stand to be in the same room with her new little friend.

Here's Kaia (blue tabby point Birman)

Kaia relaxing




Emmy looking none too pleased

Kaia conquers, Emmy yawns...

It's a bit hard to tell from these photos, but Kaia is TINY.  And she has the sweetest little mew.  Welcome Kaia :)

Kaia is beautiful. And I love the picture of Emmy looking really grumpy about her home being invaded!

Jenn's Bookshelves said...

Yay!! I'm so happy for you all! Emmy will warm up to her soon, I'm sure :)

bermudaonion said...

Aww, I'm sure they're going to be fast friends before you know it.

Michelle said...

Welcome Kaia!

Emmy's boredom in the one picture is priceless. LOL

I'm glad they are starting to adjust to each other. Congratulations!

Beth F said...

Aww Kaia is so pretty. I think Emmy is going to be okay with her.

So happy to see this post. Kaia is adorable. Hope Emmy adjusts.

Your cats are so beautiful! What a sweet face Kaia has, OMG. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who take millions of photos of my cats. This will definitely be a feature for which I will anxiously refresh my browser on Tuesdays.

Cat ladies, FTW!

Congratulations! As a youngest child, it delights me to see Emmy looking so put out by the recent addition to your cat family. Kaia is adorable. Enjoy!

Library Cat said...

Absolutely beautiful - both of them.

Yay! Cat Tuesday is back! I think Kaia is really beautiful and I hope that Emmy learns to think so too. I was reading your twitter posts the day you brought her home, and was so excited for you!

Rhiannon said...

oh yay!!! such a sad summer without my tuesday emmy fix! I can beat the grumpy look on emmy's face though. For October I've been posting photos of my cats in costumes every friday. My only girl Deliah makes the grouchiest faces for the camera ever!

Alea said...

Awwww!

Amy said...

Too cute for words! I really have missed cat Tuesday.

Erin said...

What gorgeous cats!! They look so soft. I wish I could pet them through the computer screen!

SWK said...

So-so-so cute! About to embark on a day of tough revisions but at least now I'm doing it with a smile on my face and cute kitten images dancing through my brain. Maybe my mc will be less moody today :)

Melissa said...

Kaia is so pretty!! I'm sure Emmy will love her in time :)

Stephanie said...

What a sweet little girl! <3 Emmy will come around; it's a good sign that she's already relaxed enough to be in the same room as Kaia. What beautiful kitties. So glad to see Cat Tuesday is back, and congrats on your new addition!

Emy (Sandy) Shin said...

Aw, both Kaia and Emmy are adorable. :)

Amy said...

Kaia is not only adorable but a beautiful cat as is Emmy. I always dislike the period of adjustment when a new cat comes into a home. I'm happy that Emmy sounds like she is slowly accepting Kaia.

Enjoy your new little one!

Kaia is so beautiful! And glad to see that Emmy is resigning herself to the new kitten. Even if she does it grudgingly.

Amy said...

Awww welcome Kaia! I hope Emmy and Kaia become friends soon.

Nymeth said...

Awww, Kaia is adorable! And I suspect that she and Emmy will be cuddling in no time :P

What an adorable Kitty you have now. She'll get along when she realizes she's not leaving. Just wait for the third one. You're lives will be so enriched with 3 cats. Enjoy.

Smash Attack! said...

How beautiful! Hopefully they turn into the best of friends and keep you up all night like my cats do. LOL.

~The Book Pixie said...

Welcome back Cat Tuesday! Poor Emmy is looking at Kaia like, "You could never replace my dear Finn." I'm sure Emmy will warm up to her though. Kaia is just soooo cute! :D

Aww, she's the cutest little thing! Emmy's expression in having her kingdom invaded is priceless. Lol.

SuziQoregon said...

Finally I have the chance to get here and see these adorable things. I was at work yesterday and most blogs/photos are blocked there. I am so happy to see Cat Tuesday returning. Kaia is simply adorable and I'm betting that Emmy's mothering instincts will show up before long.

Anna said...

What a beautiful kitty! I'm sure they'll get used to each other eventually. :)

Shelley said...

The pound puppy who sits by me while I write wants me to comment that such cute pictures are a reminder to everybody who doesn't already have one to go out there and get a rescue pet!

S. Krishna said...

KITTEHS, yay! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Jodie said...

Look at that nooooosssseeee. So schweet. If you give Emmy lots of fuss I'm sure she'll come around.

Sarah said...

Kaia! I love that name. So glad to see return of your kitties on the blog.

MyLibraryCardWoreOut said...

Oh my god. Weren't you getting two cats though. Where is the other one. I must know.
But they are both so cute and Emmy does not look happy at all.

Welcome to your new home Kaia!

Charley said...

Emmy's definitely thinking about biting some heads in that third picture.

Jeane said...

Oh, so nice to see that Emmy has a new kitty companion. Hopefully they'll be good friends soon. Kaia is so pretty.

Michelle said...

Kittehs!!!! Kaia is so pretty and adorable. Emmy will warm up to her soon enough, and then we'll be able to see lots of heart-melting pictures of the two of them cuddling.

Wendy said...

Awwwwww, what a beautiful kitty!!! I'm so happy you have a new little furchild in your home, Lenore. I'm sure, with a little time, Emmy will adapt and they will become good little buddies :)

Meghan said...

Kaia is so cute! I hope she and Emmy have settled in together well.
