After the sad loss of Millie and Hector within such a short space of one another we were not in any hurry to get another cat, but it left poor Molly very unsettled. Just over a week after we had lost Hector our amah came to me and said that her neighbour had some kittens. I was very reluctant to commit to anything because I still felt it was too soon, but I said I would go and look, but when I went with her we couldn’t find the kittens. I went back several days later with my husband and this time all four kittens were there, and we were immediately smitten. Two of the kittens stood out, one a little grey and white boy and a very pretty little multi coloured female. The female was the first one who came to greet us and seemed the least timid of them all, she was also the prettiest, so it wasn’t really difficult to come to a decision.
Molly is only five months old and not fully grown but she seemed large in comparison to the little kitten, who spent most of the first day trying to hide in various dark corners. It didn’t take her long to settle though and within a couple of days they were playing together and racing all over the house.
We named her Suzie after our friend Sue who’s birthday it was on the day we got her. She is quite a different character to Molly, very sweet and gentle and she likes to curl up on my lap when I am sewing or doing stuff on the computer. She can stand up for herself though and she and Molly have great mock battles.
It didn’t take long for the pair of them to start invading my sewing studio and turning everything upside down.
