Summary: Kara buys a cat.
"So what's going on between you and Captain Boomerang?" Courtney Whitmore asked as she and Kara Zor-El left the food court at the mall.
"Honestly? I have no clue," Kara replied, ditching her paper cup into a nearby trash can. "He has a thing for me, I have a thing for him, but then there's this whole deal with Power Boy and -"
"Power Boy is hot."
"I know!" Kara giggled, turning a little red. "But I really like Boomer. He's a great guy, if he could just get beyond the fact that he thinks I'm jail bait. In any - oh my god that's so cute!"
"What? What?" Courtney tore her eyes away from a pair of pants she'd been looking at to follow Kara's point of view. She noticed that the two girls were in front of the mall's pet shop. Kara held a mewling kitten in her hands, her eyes bright as she petted the kitten between its head. It was a little orange thing with a few streaks of a paler, almost yellowish orange. It barely bigger than the palm of Kara's hand.
"Power Girl has a cat similar to that," Courtney remarked. "This fierce little orange thing. It doesn't like anyone."
"Well, this little munchkin definitely likes me, don't you boy?"
"You aren't seriously going to buy that, are you Kara?"
Courtney dropped her voice. "Superhero."
Kara shrugged. "Like you said, Karen has one."
"I think she's going by Kara now."
"Whatever." Kara waved her hand, dismissing Courtney's last sentence. "C'mon, we'll go inside and pay for the little one and get some stuff. He's too cute not to get."
Courtney shook her head. "This is so totally an impulse buy," she said, following Kara into the store. "What are you naming him?"
Kara stared at the cat for a moment intently, trying to think of a name that really suited the cat. "I don't know. I'll think of a better name later, but for now, let's call him -"
"Citrus Joe? Tangerine Tomcat?"
