So, whilst I may not be at the bloggers’ party tonight, I can live up to one other blogging tradition – yes, at long last, a post about kittens! I just know that this is going to make Vaughan jealous.
This week, we went down to the RSPCA cat rehoming centre at Hastings and put our name down for these two "poor little fellas". They’re going to make it, Rolf.
This one has been named Monty by us.
He’s completely mad, a total livewire. He’s bound to wreck the place.

This one has yet to be given a name.
no name yet
She’s much more quiet and retiring, in marked contrast to Monty. We reckon that, once we have her here, a name will come to us.

The RSPCA will send out a visitor to check that we’re ok to own cats, but since we’ve already passed the test with another animal rehoming charity within the last week, we’re confident that it will just be a formality. In fact, we’re so confident that we went out and purchased kitten food, a litter tray, litter, a new cat flap (now fitted), a scratching post, a basket, a carrier and assorted toys today.
This is going to be fun.

  1. Jealous? JEALOUS??!!! You don’t even know the half of it. Not just one kitten, but TWO!!! S’not fair.


    They’re lovely. And I think if you’re calling one of them Monty, you might perhaps consider calling the other one Rommel, or something.

    PS: If you ever need a kitten babysitter. *Sigh*

  2. Damn you Vaughan! I was going to suggest Rommel as well.

    How about Samantha? Shortens nicely to ‘SAM! WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU, SAM?’

  3. You have no idea what you’re in for-I think. It’s great you’re taking on two. One of mine has decided after a couple of years the litter box is NOT for her. :~) She does number 1 on a towel in front of the bathtub and number 2 wherever she happends to be standing or fleeing. Where I am no one checks out folks before they get an animal. If you want to pick up 25 cats all in one day you can! How about “Shadow” or “Dusty” for names?
