Meet Si

This is Kristina's cat, Si, as in Siam the Siamese. I imagine that the children named her/him. Siamese cats often get a bad rap because they are inherently snobbish looking and acting. And they are usually very vocal--will meow until the other cats come home. My friend Wallis Payne had a Siamese named Diabla when we were growing up. She wasn't the nicest cat, but I still loved her. She would claw you in a second, but she was pretty on the outside. Here is Si, pretty on all sides.

And again. S/he seems to be taking the hat in stride, like royalty.
