Well we got Luna two weeks before my 15 year old cat Cassie was diagnosed with cancer and had to be put down. It was really rough. DH2B's Dad wanted her and planned on her in the house but his girlfriend "layed down the law" in his house. Ugh I could smacked him BC he was head over heals for that kitten. Luna is great. I'll have to try to sneak a picture of her tomorrow assuming she holds still long enough. We call her Houdini. I think she's about 14 weeks smart as a whip. And learning manners but she's a kitten and there are lots of rules to learn. Where and what to scratch. What to play with. That no matter how wound up we are when Mommy picks us up its time to stop. No getting on counters. No biting. Claws are not for bear-hugging Mommy's leg. Etc just normal things. She is spotted not striped and is very sweet when she wants to be. And she has already learned how to ask to get up when she wants something (like in the bathroom sink for a drink spoiled babies I know) a big improvement from jumping halfway up my shin and dragging her claws down.
