I do hope it works out Mark

it would be really nice for you to have a fit younger cat after devoting yourself for so long to your oldies and sickies - perhaps Kylie agrees

I take it D has been converted?

I think D was converted from the second he saw her! :D

Yes Helen - I see the likeness. The nose especially! :)

I just realised why Ingrid always looks older in photos. She automaticlly squints when she sees the camera. She often looks much more kittenish normally as her eyes are rounder :) She still has a baby squeak though :D

Keeping everything crossed, it sounds like it's going ok, could be a lot worse!

That girl is made for loving, isn't she. What a cutie. Thinking of you all. Kisses and fusses to all three of your babies.

She is a sweetie. I just want to tickle her tummy - would I end up wearing her or is she a cuddly cat? She certainly looks a cuddly cat.

I don't know, it's still technically correct - she was a VERY short term foster, then after about two days she'd found a home! ;)

Yes - I think her 'fostering' probably lasted all of 5 minutes :)

Ingrid was helping me change the bed. I tried to distract her with a catnip banana. I ended up with blood on the pillowcase protectors! :)

PS - She had her 2nd jabs this morning. She has gained 500g since she has been here! (now 3kg)

She is a little madam with poor Dom. Despite being twice her size, he takes the beating without retaliating. He just looks hurt :( - poor boy!

What a gorgeous face. Full of innocence with just a hint of the mischief that lies beneath :D

She's done well with her weight.

If I am going upstairs, Ingrid often follows me. She normally hops through the gap in the bannister on the 4th or 5th stair. Yesterday I noticed that she had to do a little wiggle to get through. Looks like she is going to being walking round the long way going forward :)

Just a quick one of Ingrid showing off her new bed (£5.99 in Home Bargains :) ) There was a whole batch, but iphoto seems to be losing my photos :(
