Another Cat Post... Sorry!

Well, actually I'm not a bit sorry.

If you have no interest in cats, I suggest you ignore my blog for a week or two. I have two new kitties, and I guess that I'm smitten enough to want to show them off to the whole world.

If my stats go down, so be it. Of course, you might miss the amazing photo posts I plan to do for Blackfen's Quarant'Ore, which starts tonight.

The kitties arrived earlier today. I allowed them time to explore on their own, as I had stuff to do. When I got back in, I fed them... or, rather, I attempted to feed them. Neither of the cats was interested in eating. As Monsignor Furretti is a little on the thin side, I wasn't very happy about that. However, the two little furballs have had their jabs this morning, and have been microchipped, and I was warned by their carer that they might have upset tums today.

They did. Mind you, the cats are so small it was hardly a problem. Somehow they looked bigger in the shop...

I thought I might be distracting them, so I left them in the kitchen by the food bowl, and went to sit down in the living room. Within two seconds I had been followed in. One cat jumped up onto my lap, and the other lay on my shoulder and arm. Both started to purr. And then they went to sleep.


After half an hour of sitting still, I had to get up. Cardinal Catzinger wasn't impressed, but he accepted my apologies (in the form of chin-tickling) and the two cats are curled up on the armchair - taking up less space than Sylvester did on his own - while I'm typing this. I did manage to get a photo or two...



I am just a little reluctant to go out...

*sigh*

Aren't they lovely! I lost my cat earlier this year to old age and associated ailments. I do miss a feline presence...

Love them!
And really love those names!
They will bring much joy to you, of this I am sure.
Thanks for the pictures and stories;
you'll never lose me on animal stories (...and the STORIES I could tell!:-))!

Warning: This close to Halloween black cats (at least on this side of the Pond) have been taken for various (& sometime nefarious) reasons. You might want to keep a close eye on them until the celebration(s) have ceased.

My only concern is the strife which will arise between them once they're old enough to have realized the difference in rank between a Monsignor and a Cardinal . . . :)))

Oh, they are gorgeous!

Please do keep posting about them. I'm a serious cat-aholic myself. : )

Yes, I'm a confirmed Roman Cat-aholic...

I'm just playing with them both after getting back from the Quarant'Ore devotions at Blackfen...
