This is Biscuit. He'll be ready in a few weeks. Our current girl Cookie purrs like a tractor at his photos and was super excited when I brought her toy kitten home smelling like him.

Oh what an absolute sweetie! is he black, or grey?

TheCatOfAthenry Mon 01-May-17 21:29:30

Black, but has a sort of stripy looking head and grey tinge? Both parents are black (not deliberately bred, just happen to know who Daddy Cat is!).

Our girl is playful, think she may have been spayed while pregnant in the shelter, and very maternal with her toy kitten, so hoping she'll adapt well.

Awwwwwwwww. Look at that gorgeous tiny wondrous face.
I'm so excited for you

They're both so beautiful. I'd live a cat but unfortunately it wouldn't be appropriate for one member of the family. eyes prey-driven terrier type dog resentfully

We had a cat called Biscuit. He caused chaos in the vet's waiting room when his name was called ....

Ooh lovely !!

TheCatOfAthenry Mon 01-May-17 22:14:24

We'll have to call the next one Dreamies.

I don't mean to piss on your chips OP but you sound a bit naive. Cats are solitary animals and your other cat is not going to "purr or be super excited" when you bring another feline into their territory, quite the opposite in fact. Please make sure they both have their own space, especially the older cat and be prepared for the possibility that it may not work out.

I would LOVE another cat with all my heart but don't want to risk upsetting the one I have already.

Cute kitten tho!

BoldKitties Mon 01-May-17 22:21:21

Oh what a beauty! How exciting. We have three wee HellKitties and they are amazing. The older one doesn't like the younger two so we keep them separate. She's a solitary soul. The younger two have gotten on great since the day we brought Big Boy home. They play fight a bit but can usually be found cuddled up together grin. I'd happily add a fourth to the mix (our local shelter have dozens of kits needing homes) but DP is adamant that three is enough. He's probably right. But I just love looking after cats. Ours are all gorgeous, cuddly, lovely little beasts. Hope that your new arrival settles in well. And please do keep the pics coming!

Thanks Lottie, I'm well familiar with cats and their ways!

Older cat is a recent rescue who enjoyed company in the shelter. She's also a shadow cat who likes to be with us, more so than most cats I've had.

It mightn't work out, of course, but I have had very sociable kitties in the past, who were very excited by new arrivals.

Certainly little Cookie comes first. She has plenty of space. Hoping for the best, but open to problem solving too!

Ahh! If he appears to have stripes, these are called Ghost Stripes. Apparently it's when the tabby gene is very dominant in black cats, although they will usually disappear within a few months.

He looks like Dobby.

TheCatOfAthenry Mon 01-May-17 22:25:08

BoldKitties, I think they'd like a fourth! Maybe you could convince your DH with some Dreamies?

19lottie82 Mon 01-May-17 22:25:43

Best of luck OP, they may turn out to be best pals, you never know how it will work out but I certainly hope they will be smile

As I said I would adore another cat, but my Pippa is certainly king of the castle in my house and I don't think she'd take to it to well grin

Thanks Lottie, I'm well familiar with cats and their ways!

Looking at photos, appreciating what is shown in them and purring in response is not one of them, to be fair. grin

Ginlinessisnexttogodliness Mon 01-May-17 22:31:38

Gorgeous kitties!
Here's my newest of three, the week we brought her home

Awwlookatmybabyspider Mon 01-May-17 22:32:11

Who Dobby

ghostyslovesheets Mon 01-May-17 22:35:17

Meh - I have 5 cats and they get on fine - not best mates but no fighting and a fair bit of cuddling and liking

Cats like company - your kitten is lovely - I think his name is Trevor

TheCatOfAthenry Mon 01-May-17 22:37:34

That's true Dixie! She does, however, go looking behind the tv whenever the Felix ad comes on. Might be anthropomorphising her, but she's so full of personality. grin

She's still so kittenish herself I think she'll tolerate playfulness, and the house is full of high places especially for her.

My vet friend has given me great advice, and I'll always find the time to play fetch with her. Hopeful, perhaps naively, I remain!

ghostyslovesheets Mon 01-May-17 22:39:15

look how stressed my cats are in a multi cat household!

TheCatOfAthenry Mon 01-May-17 22:40:22

Ghosty, they look simply distraught! grin

ghostyslovesheets Mon 01-May-17 22:43:14

it must be very stressful!
