Morning my lovely crafty friends & bloggers, hope you're all well.....sending hugs to those that need/want them.
You might remember I had great crafty plans for the weekend? I should have known really, cos me & plans just don't seem to go together lol! So there we were on Saturday, all sat around the table eating & waiting for Ant & Dec's Takeaway to start when we saw one of the cat house's moving....Lola's trying to get comfy, we thought.....5 minutes later the house was still moving so we had a little look........and there were 2 kittens.........then there were 3! But Mama Lola wasn't done.....after cleaning up her babies & having an hours rest out came 2 more!! Oh my, she's the coolest cat I know....I thought I had my babies easy at home on the sofa but Lola....wow, no fuss. no messing about & she's SO taken to motherhood....she's amazing & I feel so proud.....I do love our cats!
Look how tiny they are! All seem to be thriving & Lola's such a good Mama.
Now you won't believe what's coming next.........a few weeks ago a little black & white cat turned up at our home. The cutest cat, she has the prettiest face & she's so affectionate......and she didn't want to leave. My boys did everything they could to try & find her owner.......door knocked, advertised, the police, posters....sadly it seemed nobody was missing her. James took her to the vets sadly she wasn't chipped.......but she is pregnant! So now she's adopted us as her carers there's no way we're gonna let her down......we'll love her as our own, look after her & her babies but as soon as she's ready after the birth she'll be off the the vets because we ARE responsible pet owners & she will be neutered alongside our Lola bear.
We did think maybe it's not our right to do that but as no one has claimed her we found that if we gave her over to a shelter she would be neutered anyway......and if the vet is happy to do it given the circumstances (and he is) then we're happy to pay for it.
Rightio my friends, lots to do today so I'll say bye for now, have a lovely day & I'll see you tomorrow.
