We have a new kitten!
It is manx (no tail) and has my absolute favourite type of coat - white with specks of tabby randomly spaced.
My mother has called it ‘kate’ which I can’t get used to (I can’t help feeling like I’m addressing a human child when I beckon it) My first thought for a name was ‘motorbike’ because within seconds of meeting it it was purring like a motorbike.
I got my camera out on that night, and after a few failed attempts to get the damn thing to focus I got the ‘warning - battery exhausted’ message. The spare battery was in another room, and it was late already, so I decided pictures could wait.
Then the next time I saw… kate she looked like a sleep-deprived frail old-age cat. She’d had her injections you see, and the vet had made a total mess of administering her ear-medicine. So the stuff was all over the cat’s head. She was not looking her best for photographs.
What with my camera’s utter crapness for indoor photography, you might have to wait for pictures.
BTW - ten weeks old she is.
