Double the pussy


double the pussy, originally uploaded by Ampersand Duck.

The amount of pussy in our household has increased dramatically today (that's just upped my (temporary, and disappointed) visitors, I bet!). Meet Mr Pooter and Mr Padge, our new family members. They are almost identical -- Mr Padge has a small white patch on his tummy, but that doesn't help when you're glancing at them, so they have different colour collars.

We went to the RSPCA to get one cat, something to break the doldrums in our house, and came home with two, which makes me feel like someone who goes to the hospital with tummy pains and comes home with a baby without knowing they were pregnant. Suddenly the house is full of life and movement and the dog being scratched (he learnt pretty quickly who is boss, and it sure as hell ain't him) and we're all watching where we walk. It's fun. And very therapeutic.

I know it's not right to have favorites, especially this early, but Mr Padge is taking to me very quickly, and I him. Mr Pooter is much nervier, and tends to hide in corners unless his brother is nearby. Mr Padge keeps looking for me, and doesn't seem to mind the dog so much.

I'm such a cat person. I'm so happy. My old cat died about a year ago, and I've been looking forward to this day for a fair while. Hooray!

I'm scared at the google traffic that this will attract :)
