Well, something unexpected happened on the farm. We got another new cat just six weeks after adopting our one year old orange tabby Cheddar! Meet our new little one, Dr. Z! Dr. Z was born on he farm this spring and is about seven weeks old. He’s all black but for a white spot on his belly. He loves to play and snuggle and is such a joy. We decided to take him in when he was left alone by his mama cat on our porch for the better part of the day. He immediately bonded with Cheddar when we brought him inside, and the two are inseparable. They eat, sleep, and play together all day long. He’s just the sweetest thing. Also, even more good news is Cheddar is so much happier now that he has a friend. He’s no longer meowing as much and loves taking care of his little brother. We are just so happy!
Because Cheeps and Tummy are senior cats and because Cheeps has cancer, Cheddar and Dr. Z will never meet the editors in person. Enjoy these photos of our new addition!

More about the novel:
Emily Dickinson and her housemaid, Willa Noble, realize there is nothing poetic about murder in this first book in an all-new series from USA Today bestselling and Agatha Award–winning author Amanda Flower.
January 1855 Willa Noble knew it was bad luck when it was pouring rain on the day of her ever-important job interview at the Dickinson home in Amherst, Massachusetts. When she arrived late, disheveled with her skirts sodden and filthy, she’d lost all hope of being hired for the position. As the housekeeper politely told her they’d be in touch, Willa started toward the door of the stately home only to be called back by the soft but strong voice of Emily Dickinson. What begins as tenuous employment turns to friendship as the reclusive poet takes Willa under her wing.
Tragedy soon strikes and Willa’s beloved brother, Henry, is killed in a tragic accident at the town stables. With no other family and nowhere else to turn, Willa tells Emily about her brother’s death and why she believes it was no accident. Willa is convinced it was murder. Henry had been very secretive of late, only hinting to Willa that he’d found a way to earn money to take care of them both. Viewing it first as a puzzle to piece together, Emily offers to help, only to realize that she and Willa are caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse that reveals corruption in Amherst that is generations deep. Some very high-powered people will stop at nothing to keep their profitable secrets even if that means forever silencing Willa and her new mistress….
