Trying not to get too giddy. Going to see a rescue cat this afternoon.

Our grumpy old family car died last summer. DS (then 6) in particular was devastated, he adores all animals and had had to "make do" with next door's hamster and my mum's dogs 200 miles away.

I always said I'd love a tabby. We'd rather have a cat than a kitten. A year old tabby girl popped up on our local Blue Cross FB page the day after we git back from our Easter break. On paper it couldn't be more perfect. Really trying to keep calm and manage the DCs expectations that "she might not like us". smile

Gorgeous cat

DS is over the moon. He's being so kind and gentle to her. He's like this grin.

How lovely!

We collected a rescue tabby boy a fortnight and I must admit I had a little cry, my heart was bursting for him!

Enjoy Meg's first few days with you!

MidnightVelvetthe5th Sun 10-Apr-16 15:33:41

Squuueeeeeee she's so beautiful! smile

BikeRunSki Sun 10-Apr-16 15:50:13

She's having a good explore and is getting less and less nervous and more and more confident. The DC are being brilliant. I've got them sitting down nicely so that she can come to them.

dementedma Sun 10-Apr-16 15:53:06

Ooh, she's lovely. Our boy is now stretched out on our bed like a huge furry rug and very chilled!

NuggetofPurestGreen Sun 10-Apr-16 18:14:48

AHHHH gorgeous. So jealous. I want a cat! (or several).

Papergirl1968 Sun 10-Apr-16 19:49:59

Oh my goodness, she's the spitting image of my boy. Hope she brings you as much joy as he has to us. Congratulations!
