I took Pips and BB in to the vet's for their annual check-ups and shots today.
I walked in with two cats... and out with three....
Meet Lila, a seven week old kitten - possibly with Siamese or Himalayan in her - mum cat was a stray brought in to the vet clinic, where she had five kittens on April 20th. Two like this, one brown tabby (like mum) and two greys. All rather fluffy. Mum cat is a medium haired cat so I am hoping Lila will be the same.
I have been toying with the idea of getting a third cat... someone for Pips to play with... someone a lot younger than BB, who really hates Pips' rough housing around kinda play. I've hummed and hawed about it, because it seems every animal I take home ends up costing me a fortune.
So I am keeping my fingers crossed that Lila will be hail and hearty and not cost me anything other than routine healthcare.
She is just so damn cute! She purrs up a storm, rubs her tiny face all over mine, and gnaws on my fingers. Very cuddly little thing!
Now Pips just needs to get over herself and quit all the hissing and growling. I would imagine in a few weeks they will be ripping around the house, playing and running and getting into all kinds of trouble! And hopefully leaving BB to relax in his dotage.
