Back in April we had to say a very say Goodbye to our lovely old cat Misty, who was the good age of 16 and a half, she was much loved and missed terribly by us all.
Merlin sitting up, Loki is lying down.
We had said that we would not have another cat, well my husband did anyway! My son and I had other ideas, so after a lot of discussion we thought of getting an older cat, and definitely no kittens!
Loki, he was so small.
Merlin was tiny too
My son Joe and I went to various Cat Sanctuaries with no luck, especially as we were looking for a long haired older cat.
I like lying on shoes and playing with them.
I like my Mum’s knee
Finally we paid a visit to our local, very lovely Kingsdown Cat Sanctuary. I had already been in touch with Clare,the owner, asking about a long haired older cat, but there were none available. My son thought it would be a good idea to ‘go and see’ anyway.
We were looking at a couple of tiny kittens when one of the helpers pointed out that there were two more kittens in the pens on the other side of the garden, we went to have a look and I was handed a beautiful fluffy black and white kitten. It was love at first sight on my behalf, so we asked about adopting him. Clare wanted the two kittens to be adopted together, and we just could not say ‘No’.
Merlin and Loki have now been with us for about 6 weeks, they are adorable kittens, and have made our home feel complete again.
Here is looking forward to another fun filled 16 years or so with our fur babies
