The latest addition to my growing family

Those of you who follow me on Twitter would know by now that I took impulse buying to a whole new level, and came home from grocery shopping one day with a brand new kitten. My reasoning was simple: He was cute and my current cat is getting weird from being alone too often. I cannot be home all the time to keep her company, so I thought she might like a new friend as a Christmas present.


She is currently sulking in my study, a room she wouldn't ordinarily set foot in unless I am in there with her.

He is sleeping by my feet, oblivious to the death stares she is sending his way.

At least she has stopped growling at him for now. Everywhere I went in the house, they would both sprint after me. Then they would have a spitting match at my feet. Urgh, it's like being single at a night club all over again!

So by now the writer within me is perking up and saying: Hang on, maybe you can use this for in your story. What a marvelous idea! My character is, after all, the daughter of a farmer and would be no stranger to the foibles of cats.

Or maybe my heroine can come across a crazy cat lady on her journey? Or maybe not, that may seem a little close to home...


  1. Been there, done that went shopping for plants once and come home with a suppossedly pregant kitten. As it transpired the kitten was neither pregant nor female but he was exceedingly plump because everyone assumed the former. Poor Molly, he always longed to return to his prior condition of extreme well fedness. ps love your cats we have a few as well(several actually)

  2. Ooh, I only just saw this comment. To be honest, it's one of the best spontaneous purchase I've made because he's so sweet, and it's nice to come home to a friendly fur ball after a long day. Your cats are gorgeous too!!
