Why is everyone talking about Harley?
I've reassured Simon that he is very handsome, wearing his tuxedo every day, but Harley is more interesting. After all, she's a tortie! Chris asked if Harley was a boy, because she had never seen a male tortie before. No, Harley's a girl -- "Harley" is short for "Harlequin" because I thought it looked like she's wearing a mask.
A little quick-and-dirty research shows that Chris is right. Male tortoiseshell cats are rare, and it looks like chromosomally they are frequently XXY. So, I guess I'm happy that Harley's a girl!
And, yes, I'm still working on the baby jeans. Maybe by the weekend, I'll have something worth showing y'all!
