A few weeks ago my daughter asked if I would foster a couple of kittens to give a lady who runs the Consett Cat Rescue service a break. She hasn't had a holiday in 6 years and wanted to visit friends in Australia who are elderly.
I liked the idea as I would love to have cats again but worry about they will outlive us or the worse alternative that I will have to have them put to sleep. I had such a horrible time when I lost Oscar didn't think I could face it again.
So Finch & Freda arrived 3 weeks ago & made themselves at home immediately. They were lazing among the ironing in the photo above watching me iron.
Here Freda is enjoying lazing on our bed.
and Finch in hers.
They have entertained me a lot especially when they race up & down the stairs like lunatics at night. They do like a play fight now & again.
They love wool & have stolen the crochet poppies I made a few times.
I'll be very sad to see them go in a few days, there'll probably be tears but I made them a blanket each to take with them.
