Evening all, this is a new thread all about gorgeous Heidi, following on from the thread started by Gatekeeper.

We answered her thread call to give this tiny kitty a new home and we drove from Devon to Durham and back in 24hours to do so...

Now Heidi is settling well at our place after being looked after perfectly by Gatekeeper, and this thread is all about the new life of a very little and brave cat with the bushiest tale known to catkind!

If anyone can link to the original thread it would be much appreciated smile

Perfect @StewPots smile

StewPots Mon 27-Nov-17 19:37:05

So here's how today has been....

She has played, explored, eaten, chirruped, mewed and meowed her way through the day, charged about non stop leaving no stone unturned and then slept for a hefty 3.5hours under the dining room table smile

Hopefully I can upload the pictures smile

I've been following sweet Heidi's heartwarming story, so glad to hear she's settling well 🐾

I followed the tale of the travelling tail.
So glad she is home safe and sound. it looks like you will be very happy together.

StewPots Mon 27-Nov-17 19:42:15

Yay! Pics uploaded smile

We are hoping she doesn't try and wake us as much tonight but her being a cat and all I don't hold out much hope smile

I've never seen a cat so confident from the off! I was convinced that she would be hiding in a box or under something until at least Wednesday but nope. Straight round everywhere this morning, no messing, no hiding, just running about chirruping away to us all.

She's been my shadow all day, but even when she went upstairs by herself she's been calling me to come up smile

Hehe @TheSassyAssassin Can't actually believe I managed that grinthanks for your help though!

Wolfiefan Mon 27-Nov-17 19:43:48

Yay! She sounds and looks completely at home. Destiny.
You're her person!!
And that tail shock

StewPots Mon 27-Nov-17 19:44:13

And thank you @Alwaysinmyheart for linking the original. Couldn't figure that bit out confusedgrin

TheSassyAssassin Mon 27-Nov-17 19:45:39

They'll be no stopping you now! (my first proper thread ended up in Classics and was also an animal rescue story. MN can be a really very kind and uplifting place) Heidi looks very contented in the pics bless her. Glad she's had a good first day smile

Thank you! Shall be watching with interest.
Stray cats definitely seem very affectionate. Like they spend the rest of their life saying thank you!

Fluffycloudland77 Mon 27-Nov-17 19:46:37

She does look very happy, some cats are just instant cat. Mine was an instant cat & hasn't changed.

The tail is magnificent.

StewPots Mon 27-Nov-17 19:47:22

Hey Wolfie smileyeah I know right?? It's even more insane in real life.

We are trying to figure out her heritage because her confidence is setting her apart somehow. Plus the density of the fur, darkness and thickness of her stripes and her little collar as well...she has a ring of proper tuft on her neck like a mini mane.

Any thoughts? MIL says she reckons there's Norwegian Forest Cat in her somewhere.

overnightangel Mon 27-Nov-17 19:47:50

@Stewpots I reckon if you charged admission to see her you could retire by Christmas!

GlitteryFluff Mon 27-Nov-17 20:02:33

She's just adorable

Vinorosso74 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:08:15

It is a lovely tale (tail). She is a gorgeous cat-those whiskers and flood ears. I am cat broody.

StewPots Mon 27-Nov-17 20:08:20

@overnightangel gringrindon't...Christmas will be...interesting! I may charge entrance fee purely because I have a feeling my tree will get battered and I'll need to replace it grin

Vinorosso74 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:08:56

Floofy ears (bloody autocorrect)

TheABC Mon 27-Nov-17 20:11:15

Wedgie or a bit of Maine Coon. Does she like playing with water? Mine likes to drown his toy mice in the water dish.

If she does have a bit of Big Cat Breed in her, she will keep growing waay beyond the standard kitten age.

Well done Heidi for getting such a lovely new home. Oops, I have something in my eye. smile
