Thank you for all your welcomes
Paula - You may regret asking more about Amber and Kaddu! But here goes............
Back on September 2013, we gave a friend a lift to pick up two cats as their owner could no longer care for them, the cats were Amber and her assumed sister who was given the name Sky. Amber was heavily pregnant and we offered her a home until she'd had her kittens, it was decided it was better for her here than at my friends due to several reasons one of which our house was quieter and their house was a mad house.
Before this, I'd been thinking about a cat but hubby was adamant that he didn't want a cat, he had no problem Amber lodging with us til she'd had her litter but as far as he was concerned that was it! Within 2 days she'd got her paws well and truly under the table and he was forced to eat his words admitting that he couldn't turn her out
Two weeks to the day since we collected her, we'd been out for the day and we came home to find her giving birth and struggling, I sat down with her, removed the kittens umbilical cords and dried them off for her. I think they'd been coming quite fast as she wasn't having time to clean them all before the next one arrived. Hubby was heard to say something about that I wasn't to get attached to any of the kittens as none of them would be staying. Several weeks later he was forced to eat his words again as Kaddu had decided that our house would suit her very well thank you and that she had no intentions of moving out!
Well thats them, 5 years later we wouldn't be without them and they are our family, some people have children, not for us thank you we'll just have cats!
