The Kitten Has Arrived!

After deciding on the kitten that we saw at the rescue centre, we had to go through some formalities to ensure that we were the right kind of people to provide a new home to this Kitten.

We had to provide some character references from friends and employers and then send them back, in the meantime the Kitten was to undergo a check-IMG_0579 up from the vet to make sure she was fit enough to leave the centre.

After a phone call from the centre confirming all was in order, we arranged to collect the Kitten, she didn't seem phased by the journey home and seemed quite relaxed when she reached her new home.

We let her out of the travel box and she soon started to wander, we kept her in just two rooms to start with while she found her bearings.

It wasn't long before she started to play just like a proper kitten!

A Dog! we meant a Cat!

Did i say in an earlier post that we were getting a dog?

Well it seems that we have had a change of mind.

Like most families we have always had some sort of pet in the house, the most recent one being a guinea pig called Henry.
Unfortunately Henry had a growth and had to be put down.

This of course gave us a reason to re-evaluate our pet position and how much work and effort we felt we could cope with, after remymany hours of thinking we all agreed that the best option was a cat.

So off we went surfing the web for a rescue cat, the first and most obvious place was the local Blue Cross rescue home that just happens to have the perfect companion, a young 4 month old Kitten called Remy.

Remy has not had a good start in life, with the fact that she was abandoned almost immediately and put into a rescue home, then suffered an umbilical hernia which needed an operation, an of course then neutered early.
as a result Remy has a nasty abdominal scar as well as a mental scar!

Anyway we hope to bring Remy home next weekend and start allowing her to live life as a loved kitten in a good family environment.
