    Jason, The B&W kittie is Molly Taco alias "The Rat" She got her name because she skirts the kitchen like a rat, under the toe kick.

    Great going, Cin!

    I love them both, but...well...the rat rules, of course. Even from silk...
    By the way, we're still waiting for the detail on the latest avatar!
