What an overexciting day so far!
I pootled off to the cat refuge with a vague idea of seeing if two cats there who needed a joint home might like to come and live in mine. Sadly they took one look at me and said they didn’t think much of that.
So I prospected further and am now in a deciding period.
Three old boys – one 18 and the other two 16 – just arrived in the refuge after the death of their owner. One has a poorly ear now under treatment; one has been dematted so looks a little odd; the third looks remarkably fit for his 16 years. Refuge is sending more details of all three, including medical, so I can assess how realistic it would be to look after them all. They are sweet beyond expression and terribly snoozy.
Option B: A single boy, aged 4-6-ish, a gorgeous pale-gold colour and timid but gentle. needs 1- 1 care or I might simply have all four!
My current plan is to take the oldies if it seems feasible, the single if it’s not.
Calling all cat people – what would you do?
