Meet Sammie, our new kitten.
I fear you may be seeing quite a bit more of her, if I can get her to stay still enough for photos. She thinks the phone is a new toy and walks right up to it and sticks her nose on it.
Both photos were taken with my phone but I’m hoping to get some better ones with the camera once she’s settled in a bit.
We’ve been thinking about getting cats again for years. We had two before, but lost them both to old age-related problems within a year of each other. I wasn’t ready to replace them straight away and since then, we’ve been renovating the house and doing other things that caused us to put off having more cats.
We decided to start looking once we got back from our holidays so I’ve been looking online for just the right cat. We wanted both a Bengal and either a Maine Coon or a Norwegian Forest cat. Not necessarily pedigrees, but with a good mix of the breed in them.
Yesterday I spotted an ad for an 85% silver Bengal and phoned straight away. We fetched her home a few hours later. She’s about eleven weeks old and is affectionate, playful and very demanding. She’s a bit skittish still but we’re introducing her to the various rooms in the house gradually and she’s starting to find her feet.
We’re both completely smitten with her.
