Charlie received a very special surprise today.
His very own kitten.
He's named her Katy Cleopatra.
She's only about 6 weeks old, and was found abandoned on the streets a week
ago. She'd been given in to our vets, and when Del saw her photo he was
the one who suggested we take her.
Her sweet pointy little face got to him, and he couldn't resist giving her a home. And who better to give her to than Charlie.
And hopefully it might stop him asking for a little brother or sister perhaps?
Sorry kid, your destined to stay the youngest child in the family, but here have a kitten to boss around instead.
Already we see her naughty cheeky personality coming out, she's a real handful and so very confident. Her time on the streets has turned her into a tough one I think.
How are our other pets taking her arrival?
Our dog Trooper just wants to
play with her, but as he's a million times bigger than her, he's being very careful and not pushing it yet. I think he's letting her warm up to him first. She even takes his bed and he just lies on the cold tiles next her. His eyes follow her everywhere. I can't wait for the day I find them snuggled up together on his bed.
And Merlin, our 15yr old cat, just ignores her and walks past with disdain, probably thinking "Humans! I never gave permission for another cat to enter the household. I shall show my disapproval by ignoring everyone".
