Meet Ripley

This is Ripley.

Full name: Ripley Furiosa Woofstonecraft. She is the first female in our household since Kelly joined it, so we decided she had to be named after a feminist pioneer. After considering Susan B., Elizabeth Cady, and Shelley, I suggested Ripley (which may have occurred to me because the first volunteer who helped us at the SPCA was named Ellen) and our friend Carrie suggested the rest.

Of uncertain parentage, but clearly related to something orange, Ripley weighs in at about 40-odd pounds, which is under her fighting weight, so we'll be working to pack some protein into her. Dixon, Ian, and Adriana have all met her and given their approval, so we'll hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
