No, not the popular snack originating from Mexico, but a little furball originating from the local humane society.
This is our Nacho:
She’s just a little over three months old and the newest member of our household. I’d planned to get a dog after the holidays but that’s been put on the backburner for awhile and for several reasons (frigid Canadian winters being one of them). In addition, this little kitty will be a much better playmate for Bailey (our ferret, for those of you that don’t already know) than a dog could ever be. The two have already had a nose to nose sniffing match while being held by different arms. I’m happy to report that there was no hissing, paw slapping or teeth bearing. Nothing to worry about. In fact, kitty purred through the whole ordeal and Bailey pretty much just stared at her dully. Both good signs.
Anyway, Bailey and Nacho will get a few more days of sniffing sessions followed by a few days of short face to face interactions. Eventually they’ll spend more and more time together, which will probably turn out to be quite interesting. Two super playful furballs? Can you say circus performances?
And no, it wasn’t me that came up with the name Nacho for this sweet little feline. That was my daughter’s idea. I was leaning towards Tortilla :)
