on the first weekend of the holidays, we went to our neighbours house. She is a veterinary nurse and she takes home the kittens in the weekends to look after - and we were lucky enough to visit them! She had 6 kittens the first time, all tabby and all so darn cute. We got to hold each one, and I got to one kitten and she said 'she is the naughty one' but she was calm and she slept almost the whole time we were there. When she woke up she looked me straight in the eyes and pt her paws on my face; now as you can imagine, as a cat lover like me, i fell to pieces! I remembered her that whole week, as we were trying to convince my dad to get one.
The next weekend, we went again, and 5 more kittens had arrived, so now there were 11! I had to hold the same one though, and she was as adorable as I remember. Somehow, dad said yes to us getting one, and I was nearly in tears! my mum and my brother could see how caring my kitty was, the others climbed all over you and wouldn't stop moving and playing, so everyone had a hold and we decided she was the one.
The next day, we went to pick her up. She is now 6 weeks old, as light as a feather, and completely adorable. She has little naps throughout the day, after her mental sessions of running around sideways like a monkey, and jumping over things and chasing a toy I made for her. She still doesn't really have a name, so suggestions would be great I guess! My family likes the name leeloo because it suits her, but I'd like to see what you guys think!
So, welcome to the Larkin family kitty cat!
