Introducing Flora and Harriet

 

The Minx’s first word, when she was around ten months old, was ‘ca’ and ever since she’s been asking us for either a cat or a dog or (though not as frequently) a sibling.

Since we decided that a sibling was definitely NOT going to be provided, she was fobbed off with vague promises of a pet ‘when you’re old enough’, which turned into promises of a ‘cat when you’re six’.

 

Moo

 

The Minx turned six in the middle of this month, and we soon realised that she would not let us postpone the fateful day a moment any longer and we signed up to get emails from cat adoption agencies.

Last Thursday we unexpectedly heard of a kitten adoption event at a local shelter and after meeting them on Friday night brought home two small grey kittens on Saturday. So my weekend was spent somewhat differently than I had anticipated and our house has already turned into Grey Gardens.

Here they are – Flora has three white socks and a white bib and Harriet is completely grey.  I am realising that cat photography makes kid photography seem like a walk in the park.

And as you can see someone is absolutely besotted.

    Nell was besotted, too, for at least a week, with Panda, Charlie, Bernie and the rabbits. She still occasionally sends them a postcard….

    Ah, pets. They add a lot of life to the house. May Flora and Harriet become valued elements of your family life.(This written as my cat, Wikileaks, attempts to sit on the keyboard.)

    Grey Gardens — ha! I would have been tempted to call them Big Edie and Little Edie. Congrats on the new family members. They are adorable and the Minx looks over the moon. :)
