Just to let you know that Alphie has settled in just famously.!!  We adopted her on Sept 30th.  It took only a few days for us to get used to her and vice versa.  Now, she is so used to us that it seems like she has been here for a very long time.  She eats canned food and just a little dry food. She is definitely used to a female from her first home, and is continuing that in our home.  She definitely was the right animal to pick to adopt!!!  We are grateful that she never went outside, since that is what happened  when we lost our previous cat.  Thanks UPAWS!!
