Sam went to his new family last week. They thought very carefully about the decision to adopt a new kitten, as they only recently lost their previous cat, whose brother Kasper was feeling a bit lost. But they fell in love with Sam when they met him, and I’m sure he will enrich all their lives.
Sam, now called Alfie, is a lively little character, always looking to see what mischief he can get into next! During his stay with me he had an interesting technique for drinking water – first he scooped some water out of the bowl, then he stood with his front feet in the bowl and drank from the bowl. Then of course he walked all over the place with wet paws!
Incidentally, several people have asked me to write something about bereavement. Both people and animals feel the loss of a loved member of the household – I’ll give it some thought and post an article.
Thanks very much for the pictures. We’re starting to get a few of him now that he’s settling in. L… has decided to call him ‘Alfie’ after trying out a few names. He’s been wandering about making himself at home and keeping us amused. Kasper (our other cat) is getting used to him and I’m sure they will be firm friends soon. I’ll send you some pictures once they are downloaded.
