I've had a very exciting few days as I've adopted two cats, Lucky & Phoebe. I knew when I lost Abby in May that I would have to get another cat, preferably two so they could be companions for each other while I'm at work. I took a few days off work last week just to have a break & also because I was ready to look for my cats & I wanted to have a few days at home with them so we can get to know each other.
I went to the Animal Aid shelter at Coldstream on Tuesday to visit the cattery & see who might want to come home with me. They have a lovely website with lots of photos, videos & information on the cats (& dogs) available for adoption. I was looking for older cats as I know they can be hard to find homes for but I really didn't have any ideas except that I didn't want kittens.
They came home on Thursday & spent the first afternoon exploring the house & getting to know me. They're a bit wary of each other. There have been a few spats but they've also rubbed noses a few times & I'm trying to give them equal time so I hope they'll get along. It's lovely having someone to talk to & it's been great to have time to get to know them a little. We haven't ventured outside yet, probably next weekend. I can't wait for some warmer weather so I can get some photos of them in the garden. It's just as well I'm going back to work on Monday, I could quite easily stay home all the time with these two to play with.
