Trinity the new Traveling Partner

11 months ago we had to make the hard decision and say goodbye to our cat Mittens. After 23 years on this earth her time had come. The loss of her hit us pretty hard and we will never forget that silly little cat so in her honor we rescued another female Maine Coon kitten from death.

A few weeks back we decided it was time to start looking for a new cat and with the okay in hand Katarina went on a mission. She mined the internet and found a few options back in California but also kept an eye on the areas we were in. Arriving into New Mexico she happened upon a website for a local (well 100 miles away) pound. They had a Maine Coon kitten that was seven weeks old that only had 1 day until it would be destroyed.

So we woke up early finished work and got on the road. Located in Artesia New Mexico the city was 100 miles due East from Alamogordo. Arriving around noon we picked up this friendly little cat. Back home now Katarina is making her feel at home and the cat is already warming up to both of us.

Originally we planned on naming her Artesia after the city we found in her but based upon feedback and using the name for a few hours we decided it did not roll off the tongue. In considering a name alternative we looked close in the area for things that make this region of New Mexico unique. There are two primary things: White Sands National Park and the site of the first nuclear bomb detonation5 code named Trinity. Trinity as defined is the unity of three items into one forming a single unit… sounds appropriate here. Trinity has joined our family.

    Cats always behave better when they have another cat to play with. Mr. Darcy, a beautiful sweet cat was found by my friend about a year ago when she was trail running. She rescued him and has taken care of him but is never home. He really needs a loving home and it sounds like you guys are the perfect match. 🙂 Mr Darcy may be his given name but it is easily changeable.
    Just saying…..

    You should bring Trinity over to the house and get her socialized with the dogs. That way you won’t have to worry about her becoming scared of them!
