I was minding my own business quietly starting to sort some seeds out in readiness for planting up when Rat-a-tat, tat the front door went and there was Eve my friend asking for a helping hand or so I thought. So I pottled over, as you do, and she handed me a small animal carrying case. When I peered inside there looking up at me was the most delightful little bundle. Eve has only just gone and acquired a kitten, a beautiful tabby kitten - she thought a little boy, but wasn't sure; handed him to me when we got into her home and said here you check, you are used to cats. A quick peek quickly corroborated that he was indeed a little boy. That was it, he hid behind my long skirt, scaled my legs, bit my finger and then fell asleep on me. He was gorgeous, and needless to say I have had a severe case of kitten envy. Apparently he was one of 6 kittens, the last born of the litter, but so loving - well he fell asleep on my lap in the end. But I seem to have a soporophic effect with cats and kittens. When I got home, Squeak landed on my lap had a good sniff and hasn't moved far since. She has been hogging my lap and imposing squatters rights I think. No doubt I will see the kitten who I think is going to be called, well at the moment anyway, Pickles later on when I see Eve. Kittens and Cats melt my heart at the best of things. But its nice to have a cuddle and a little play; I settled him down, got him eating and drinking, all it will take now is a little time and patience and he will be more than okay. I left Eve with instructions as to what to do, she has never had a kitten before. But Pickles was absolutely gorgeous. My heart melted.Needless to say the seeds will have to wait until another night for sorting.
Hope you have all had a lovely day and evening.
Catch you all soon
