We were asked if we'd met Sally and Mac on our last visit. We didn't remember seeing them but they'd only just been moved from Maternity to the viewing area this morning. They're 6 months old and a bit older than Emily was hoping for, but we went to view them anyway. She fell in love with Sally (the tabby). When we asked if we could see her we were told that they wanted the two cats to housed together. Hmmmm........
I called Jon to see what he thought of that and he surprised me by saying if they were the ones Emily wanted, and I was alright with it, he didn't mind!! So, we agreed and asked to have a visit with the kittens. We were taken into a side room and spent about 20 minutes with the kittens and one of the staff members - who explained about integrating them into the home and introducing them to the other animals. After the visit Emily was more keen than before. We have a home visit arranged for lunch time tomorrow (because when we got Charlie and they did a home visit, we were in our previous house) and if that goes well, we can go straight down and pick them up!
Sally and Mac Mac was more reserved and happy to watch from the outskirts
We did get to pick him up and have a hold; he's so soft and cuddly
I think he wondered what the thing in front of my face was (the camera lens probably looked HUGE to him)
Emily got to hold Sally (who is likely to be renamed Bellatrix Echo Bronte !!!)
My friend Helena was holding her here and didn't want to be in the photo ;o)
This shot is just to give you an idea of how big they are, they're still quite little at 6 months
Love the little tip of her tail! This little lady was quite inquisitive and had a good look at everything that was going on the other side of the door.
PS. Mum and Dad, I know what you're thinking, you'll just have to bear with us on this one ;o)
