Just to let you now how Abbie and Archie are settling in. We were both so upset when we lost our last old ladies within a month of one another. But when we saw Abbie and Archie we knew they were perfect for us.
They are both doing really well and seem to be finding their feet and moulding us to their needs.
Archie is a complete cuddle monster and can't get enough fuss and attention, while Abbie is a bit shy and likes being in her cat cave and snoozing, however she is just coming out of her shell and starting to demand a fuss. Archie's daily dilemma is who's lap to pick and wanders between us until he decides and then collapses in a purring furry heap. Abbie loves her food and if we are even a moment to slow in feeding her, boy do we know about it, which has earned her the nick name of screech! She is such a nosy neighbour and when she isn't curled up snoozing she loves sitting in the sunny window and keeping an eye on what everyone outside is up to.
They have been so good since they have arrived and got to grips with using their tray and finding their favourite places to sit. Archie has started to go out into the garden for a wander around and Abbie is loving digging in the veggie beds, (great for getting rid of the weeds). At the moment they are having great fun chasing spiders, daddy long legs and playing with the cat nip mice I made for them. Archie has a mad five minutes and gallops around, skidding round corners and mewing to himself. Abbie just supervises from a safe distance! Far to elegant for any of that nonsense.
It's so nice to come home from work and see two little faces sitting in the bay window (like book ends) waiting for me to come in. Archie is normally so excited when I get through the door that he shivers all over including his tail and tells me all about his day, while Abbie tries to herd me into the kitchen to feed her. They seem to be very happy at home while we are at work and have the run of the house.
I really can't imagine being without them now and think they seem really happy,we look forward to many happy years of sharing the sofa with them both !
I'm sad to see that Snowy is still with you, he was Abbie and Archie's neighbour and was such a character. I hope someone will come along for him soon.
Thank you for our lovely cats !
Neil, Victoria, Abbie and Archie.
