The Kitten Formerly Known as Melman

now answers to the name of Bob. Well, being a kitten, he doesn't really answer to anything, but that's what we're calling him. Bob is a bit of a Rum Tum Tugger.

Today Bob discovered that toilet lids aren't always closed. Fortunately, Mr S was there to fish him out and dry him off.

"Milton" is evolving into "Martin", which may or may not end with that. As Eliot reminds us: "The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter, It isn't just one of your holiday games...."

Martin is lithe and lively, seems just a bit more thoughtful than Bob, but perhaps that's his (relatively) advanced age.

The newbies are too cute! I got my mum a cat when I was in Maine. She's 3 years old and only weighs about 3 pounds. Her name in Punkin. Mum resisted at first but I wore her down. Now I get daily updates on what the cat is up to now! :-) Congrats on your new furbabies!

Nu slaaf van abessijn Siera, en halfsijn-kinderen Jikke en Stuiter(kwam in stuitligging, ook wel genoemd: abuizen (van de buurtkater ipv de dure kater)
