Thank you so much, Anne.  And today I was going to email you to let you know how happy we are with Trixie, who is now named Abla, Arabic for the oriental version of Juliet, of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.  It is a name my husband loved and, I'm sure, would have given her had he been here.
 
I think I had a feeling that she and I were meant to be.  And I am very grateful to you and to Amber and Tiffany for "supporting" me during what seemed like an infinite period (only two days!) when we could not be sure she would be available.  This was the first time I had looked for an animal on petfinder.com (our farm having no dearth of dogs or cats,) and  as soon as I saw Trixie's photo I clicked it.  And the rest, as "they" say, was history.
 
Many thanks, as always, for your kindness, empathy and patience, and best wishes from
