His name is Soots! We all deliberated a l-o-n-g time and considered many, many names. But seeing as this name had popped into a dream of Christina's AND the kitty's nose & paws look like he got into some soot made it destiny. :)
He was incredibly good on the 3 1/2 hour ride home last night, then settled right into bed.
We have been playing and exploring the house today.
Christina and David did an excellent job of finding this kitty at the shelter!
