This must be the longest non-blogging period I've ever had apart from hospital times. I have various things to tell you but they pale into insignificance in the light of what happened yesterday.
We went here...
We went to the Centre for two related outdoor
kittens, or at least cats under four years old, and no ginger,
marmalade or all black ones. I decided we needed to move house so we could accomodate a few dozen cats from Moggy mansion and the separate isolation units..
There were so many to fall for and want to take home.
But the first one we both fell for was Pippa - no photo sorry - who would have had to be an outdoor cat and the proximity of a main road to our house meant the Centre would not let us have outdoor cats. Pippa would also have had to be on her own and we really wanted more than one. She also was not suited to being with a dog and Jo would like to get a dog at some stage.
So, we went to the Centre for two related outdoor kittens, or at least cats under four years old, and no ginger or marmalade ones.
But the next ones I fell in love with were Annabel and Mac.
And we have ended up reserving two older indoor cats (Miss Annabel is six and Mr Mac is ten) who are not related, though they have lived together (indoors), all their lives and of which one is marmalade. That's life! We have reserved them and subject to us receiving a satisfactory home check they will be with us at the end of next week. So here, at last, we are able to introduce the two folk who will hopefully grace our home for some years to come. Fingers crossed it all goes well please.
