Isn't she gorgeous? I was so surprised that we got her, I'm still pinching myself now .... hubby wasn't too keen on cats you see. We used to have a cat called Misty and we got her before we had the kids and. She was 13 when we had to have her put to sleep and she wasn't the friendlist of cats, not a lap cat by any imagination. That was around 10 years ago and the kids and I have been asking for one since.
We were thinking about getting another Hector ......
.... we found a breeder but as they were a working kennel they dock all the tails and wouldn't be able to give us a puppy with a tail on, so it was a no go! For me, it wasn't meant to be and I kind of flung a throw away comment about getting a kitten instead and think how much easier it a kitten would be and how much cheaper a kitten would be (£840!!) and how it will catch the rats that we always get when the farmer cuts the fields etc etc. Surprisingly he said yes!!
Then we had to find one, not as easy as you think as it had to fit in with us being away for a weekend and the kittens being ready to come from their mother. But, we got there in the end and I am sooooooo happy with her. Even hubby likes her and I often find him watching her with a smile on his face. She is super cute though, so it's not hard.
I can't tell you how nice it is to have a cat in the house again and it makes it just a bit more homely. Especially when I go upstairs and she is curled up on my bed. #heartmelts
If you're wondering about her name, one of the fairies in Sleeping Beauty is called Merryweather and when ever I've
gone on asked about a kitten, she was always Miss Merryweather, just the same as Hector was always going to be Hector.
The kids have shortened it to just Merryweather, but that's fine.
Anyway, got to go as I need to help hubby build my sewing room .......................... eeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!
