After a long (not long at all) discussion between the family members i.e. Mr. Gattino and myself we decided to adopt another little cat. We found out that Arthur with the time gets frustrated because his female companions don't want to play with him anymore. Lisa with her 16 years still plays but not with him, she prefers us. Pookie, yes from time to time would allow him to run after her, but then she would suddenly stop, turn around and give him a hiss and a slap in his oh so surprised face. Not to talk about Kim who doesn't even know what playing is.
Now to avoid that poor Arthur will become an old grandpa before time, we decided to provide him with a playmate ! And for the first time in our life, we choose Internet to find the appropriate partner ! (like some humans do).
First we wanted to go to our usual animal shelter but it brakes our heart to see all these unhappy animals ! Coward as I am I choose the easier way : Internet. I put one advertising :
Want to adopt female kitten, black and white for companion to my cat Arthur (spayed)
The latter is very important to mention otherwise people think I want to have a birth machine for kittens. Already the first reply was a hit ! A very young couple and very surprised by the fact that their darling cat had become mother of 5 (!) babies ! answered. 3 were already "booked" and from the remaining two I choose (on picture only) this little thing above. A black and white girl.
And today I will drive about 20 km to have a look at our futur family member ! (Report will follow of course)
But now the big question ! What name to give ??? Please help us, otherwise there will be a divorce for disagreement ! We thought about ROSIE. Do you have a better idea ?? All suggestions are heartly welcome !
Poor (or happy ?) Arthur doesn't know yet what is expecting him ! From mid June on it's finished with naps and lazy times !
My friends now look at me with admiration ! I am the first one who adopted via Internet ! Nobody can reproach me that I don't go with the time !
