My poor children haven't really had a pet. We have cows and chooks but nothing you can really cuddle and play with in the garden. We have toyed with the idea of a cat or dog for ages. Mr Eight has a range of allergies which we thought might be an issue of we got a pet. I'm also not a fan of dog poo where kids play and have always thought cats might eat the blue wren families in our garden so we have never got around to adopting a pet.
Last night the husband took away a cow to sell and came back with a black kitten.
Valentines present apparently.
Its on trial. If allergy boy flares up it may have to go back to where it came from. Its a friendly, placid little thing. If he passes the test I think we will get an old bird aviary and shut him up at night and hopefully the wrens and him can co-exist.
Cat in cage....not birds.
I've wasted the better half of a day giving it two baths to get rid of fleas. Now its all de-bugged I can see some potential sewing time on the horizon. Miss Muff is obsessed with it. A piece of string with a scrap of wadding tied to the end, they will be busy together for ages!!!
