Thanks for all your nice comments since the arrival of our kittens. They are certainly keeping us on our toes. At the moment they are mainly living in our kitchen and utility room, so it’s a bit of a (nice) ordeal to make a cup of tea.
They are delightful, although Ginny who was an only kitten tends to playbite/scratch harder than Harry, who is soppy little thing, so we’re working on it. They are eating well, mostly getting on with each other, and are prodigious in the poo department – not having had cats for six years, I’d forgotten about that!
This afternoon, they’ve been to the vets for their first lot of jabs, plus flea/worming treatments and a pro-biotic for Harry to help his digestion. My wallet is feeling decidely lighter, to be repeated in three weeks time – but they’re worth it!
We brought them into the lounge briefly this afternoon to enjoy the sunshine, and they were sweet, but Juliet had to follow them round moving things. They could however be distracted easily with a cat laser and a paper sack.
Next time we go to the vets, we need to decide whether to get them micro-chipped – probably yes, but £17 each.
Then we have the cat insurance question. Do we use Pet plan, Tescos, or any other provider or just wing it and cross our fingers? Your advice on this matter will be appreciated.
