    Today, Gary and I went to the Bergen County Animal Shelter and looked for a cat.

    We sure didn't leave empty handed! Meet our new cat, Autumn (we don't know if we want to change her name or not)!

    Thank you :)

    PS If you're going to look at the pictures, you could at least leave a comment here. I'm checking IPs like a madwoman, you know. Seeing a lot of IPs that have been familiar in other areas. Much appreciated :)

    You think I'd be that stupid to post it here? Come on, Joe. I deserve more credit than that.

    Let's just say, precautionary measure. I don't open my photo albums at all to the public. I thought this one would be sweet for everyone to see, including our family and friends.

    So, we've posted this question on other forums we belong to....except here. Til now!

    Should we rename the cat? Ideas for names? Non Star Wars, please. I don't really want to rename it, but if we find a name that suits her, we might have to :)

    How about "moose"?

    I still maintain that "Thor" or "Beefsteak" are perfectly suitable names. [face_laugh]

    Seriously, I like her name the way it is. :)

    It's a GIRL, Joe! LMAO. Moose. Beefsteak. Thor. All boy names. LMAO.

    I like her name the way it is, too. Gary thinks she doesn't know her name. I think it's because she spent 2 months in a kennel and doesn't hear her name everyday.

    Thanks Evie! She's getting better with walking around the house a little more. She seems to be a little frightened by Gary, which makes me think her previous owner was a male who abused her. Once Gary pets her and shows her affection, she calms down. We're also thinking that calling her by the name she was given might be a reminder of that person, so she might be apprehensive because of that.

    What about the names Amy or Anne or something like that?

    I was thinking Audrey, but that's going to be my first born daughter's name. A few names I thought of:

    Amber
    Sabrina
    Tabitha

    Those are just a few.

    Thanks John!

    So, today marks a week that we've had Autumn. So far, she won't come into the living room/dining room, but she'll go into every other room in the house. I think the hardwood floors scare her a bit. She likes to play with her blue mouse but when we're sleeping, so we hear her running down the hallway at 3am. LMAO.

    She's been a great cat, I just hope she'll eventually come into the living room!

    She's been meowing at all ends of the night. She also pooped right near her litter box, which is partly my fault because I didn't change her litter. And, she got sick this morning in the living room...where she never goes! LMAO.
