Names please

Ooooh, squeeee!

One will be Sirius. The other will not be Terry no matter what DS2 says!

Maybe Phineas, Orion or Idris.

Oh they are beautiful 😻😻😻
It is impossible to only go and have a look at a rescue, the law most definitely states that you must adopt whilst therewinkgringringrin

Too adorbs! I like Phineas.

SoupDragon Mon 12-Nov-18 17:19:45

I considered Regulus but it seemed so inferior to Sirius. Although not as inferior as Terry.

Yes. I got away lightly with two. If I'd taken the children there could have been about nine!

Remus! (Although maybe he’d get species confusion). Or Severus.

Gosh they look identical to the pair I adopted last week! Mine were already at home with me in my foster room so it was only a matter of time until they became officially mine, haha.

Ooooh! I'm jealous!

Gorgeous. Have you got any others at home? They are stunning.

And this is why I cannot set foot near a rescue. I would come home with some 3 legged ancient unadoptable cat and Ollie would be "WTF hooman? I'm your ONLY cat"

I suspect SoupDogg may be a little put out but he did grow up with cats.

Our previous cat died suddenly at the start of July.

I have ordered different coloured collars for them.

I'm not a big fan of collars and hopefully they'll grow up to be somewhat less identical! They both have the same coloured eyes (amber) so that's no help.

in my foster room

Do you mean "in the room all my cats are in before they all become mine"?

I would have been the same, even without my children! When we chose our 2, DH was with us and was the stern voice of reason. I'd have loads if I could.

SoupDragon Haha, in fairness I've fostered a total of 11 kittens and 2 mums this summer and only kept these two. wink So that's not tooooo bad...

Sparklingbrook Mon 12-Nov-18 17:45:32

I went over to see Sparklingcat 'just for a look' Ended up borrowing a carrier to bring her back and stopping at Tesco for some cat food. hmm

SoupDragon Mon 12-Nov-18 18:22:37

My children are ganging up on me and trying to push through "Captain
Raymond Jacob Holt" for the kitten that isn't Sirius. 🙄

I took DD then 3 to look at a lovely friendly girl who the rescue thought would be ideal.... She obviously fell in love with a cranky boy who hissed at her and had been returned more than once...

After a fortnight hiding in a cupboard comming out to eat and toilet only - he attended every bedtime story and monster hunt before bed until his last day.

He was the most perfect cat we could every have.

@twinkletoedelephant aw that is lovely. He was obviously meant to be yours. Love stories like thatsmile
