Mad Cat Lady – Starter Pack
Hello everyone. How many cats does it take to become a mad cat woman? I ask because we have two new furry additions to the Abrahams household, bringing the total number of cats to 4.
Welcome Bert and Ellie
I’ve wanted a new kitten for quite a while now, but it took a little while to talk (nag and pester) Mr A into seeing things my way. The plan was initially to get just one, as kittens are not cheep these days. However when we first visited the kittens home when they were just a week old I knew we would end up having two.
We initially chose two little ginger boys, and had decided to call them Bert and Ernie.
But tragedy struck at 4 weeks and one of the little boys had a fatal accident in his water dish. When we went to see them again at 5 weeks the cat lady told us of the accident and gave us the option to either have the deposit back for the one boy, or chose a different kitten from the litter. They had a pure black kitten, and pure white one and this gorgeous little tabby girl. It was a bit of a no-brainer, we were hooked at first sight.
After waiting another 3 weeks till they were old enough to leave mum, we finally got them just over a week ago.
Initially we were going to stick with the names Bert and Ernie, but our little tabby girl just looks too delicate to be and Ernie, so a few days ago we renamed her Ellie.
I did worry a little in the weeks before they arrived that the appeal of having kittens would quickly pass and I might regret spending so much money on them (you know the way you really really want something, and when you get it, suddenly its a bit meh). Luckily thats not the case. They are friendly, confident and I can happily spend hours just watching their antics. Great for me, not so good for the housework.
Have you got a new pet recently? What pet would you get if you could have anything?
