On a chilly summer night a little stray cat showed up near the Koyangi house. Rumor must have spread that this is the right place to come if you're a cat in need...
Clearly this little girl knew where she was heading!
If you know anything about Lena it won't surprise you that she couldn't resist to bring the little one indoors and take care of her.
"Aww, you must be starving! Don't worry, I'll bring you some food, and you find yourself a nice and warm place to sleep tonight."
This night it is Bharu's shift to guard the food bowls.
Hm? An intruder? In our territory?
He follows the unfamiliar smell to the house door, preparing for a fight against a new rival, and sees... woah, it's just a baby! A tiny kitten! Well... that changes things. Clearly this little one is no danger.
Bharu is relieved and introduces himself to the newcomer. And if you didn't believe in love at first sight between cats, these two are the living proof that it DOES happen.

I'm sorry I can't stop -
And it's not only Bharu who is in love with the little girl, who by the way was named Valla. Everyone in the household loves her!
Look how tiny she is!
I could go on for ages like this, Valla is just that cute! No wonder Lena couldn't resist taking her home.
To make this short update not only about Valla's arrival here are also some moments from Lena's and Feli's day at the summer festival. If you remember the last chapter Lena has promised to spend time with her daughter without the cats once a week and this was their "human time" this week!
Yeah, a water balloon fight! So much fun!
... eww! Water!
Seriously, why did nobody warn Feli that water balloon fights involve water?!
Clearly, this tragedy completely ruined Feli's day. Lena tries to improve her daughter's mood by offering her to get a tiger face paint, but Feli is still pouting.
"Eh... it doesn't even look like a real tiger. Even I could have done that better!"
What a truly terrible day!
Maybe roller-skating is more fun then? At least it doesn't involve cold, wet water.
The pretty girl next to her is Blanca Shepherd, one of the children of Benjamin Schmidt and Hailey Shepherd if you're familiar with the Appaloosa Plains townies.
You'll get to know them closer in the next updates, since Feli and the Shepherd kids are really good friends.
Finally! A smile on Feli's face on this terrible summer day!
