Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, and we hope you all have a wonderful New Year too! Enjoy your holidays, and keep safe and healthy!!!



These are the newest additions to our family. The kitten on the left is Coco, who is a gift for Lachlan's birthday next month, and Bella is on the right who is Isabelle's early Christmas present. The kids both chose their names on their own, no help from me (unless the choice was really bad), but I think they chose them appropriately. We actually contacted a woman who had 5 cats, and all of them had had kittens, so she was in desperate need to find them a home, so we chose 2 instead of 1. They are actually sisters so they play well together and chase each other other all day, and now they have started purring. Bella was actually a bit constipated when we got her, but she is over the worst, and I think trying to fend for themselves amongst 20 kittens was a bit much because they were absolutely starving when we got them. I immediately bathed them when we got home because they looked a bit dirty and unclean, the poor babies. Coco is just a hyper kitten, but loves a good cuddle and will let you know by the loud purrs how much she likes it. Bella is so tiny, but she can defend herself when they are both wrestling each other. The kids are happy, and we have not forgotten Ruby. I printed out photos of Ruby for them, and they have their photos in a large frame in their bedrooms to remember her by. I feel as though we have saved these kittens and given them a better life, as they are so different in just a few days of being with us. I will have some FO's for you after the holidays when I return, and I should be back after New Year's Day. I am going to try and take the kids to the beach on New Year's Day if it is not too hot, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I shall see you next year and please keep safe on the roads!

Enjoy them and your children tomorrow! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
