As promised, here I am, back with some good news. Meet my new babies! As you know, we very sadly lost our beautiful Morris and we have been missing him like mad and our home just didn't feel right without a cat. So, yesterday, we picked up these adorable little bundles of fluff (and when I say little, they are tiny, especially the one on the left). They are both boys, brothers and are 6 weeks old (I am now a little worried that they are too small to leave their Mum, but I was assured that they are). I shall make an appointment and take them to our vet tomorrow to have them properly checked over.
As we didn't know whether we were getting brothers or sisters or one of each, we had terrible trouble deciding on names for them. The little one (did I mention that he is miniscule?) quickly got the nickname Little Pickle for obvious reasons and despite me suggesting other names (such as Sidney) I have been over ruled, and Pickle it is!
For ages, the other kitten was referred to as "the big one" - bless him. He really isn't big at all, only compared to his little brother! Eventually we settled on Arnold as his name.
It's so lovely seeing them playing (and fighting) together, they are so funny. We very briefly introduced them to Tilly (our Spaniel) today, and she is such a good girl that she refused to look at them so that she wouldn't be tempted to chase them. They did little arched backs and Arnold even hissed at her (Pickle tried and made the face, but no sound came out bless him).
Loads more scrapping opportunties - I can feel them coming on already!
Hi friends and family! I'm Carole, married to Phil since 1991 with two children, one dog and one cat. We live in a lovely part of the world, on the south coast of England. I love most things crafty, especially papercrafting, sewing and cooking! I am very lucky to be able to do most of these things on a regular basis.
