I really am going to bed early tonight  
But first, two very quick notes:

Cuddles the kitten has been visited.

Mon and Cookie both needed their shots updated this week, so over to the vet they went. Cookie was doing her usual 'They are killing me finally! I knew it was too good to last!!' freakout, so we got her in and out as quickly as possible, while Monster was more relaxed. She is usually like a rockstar at the vet: 'Hi! Hi! I'm here, here I am, yes, you can touch me. Do you have any chicken?' This time she was a bit less relaxed, mostly because the airconditioner was broken and puppy playgroup was on in the other half of the waiting room, so we were uncertain about whether or not she and Cuddles the vet kitten would be able to meet.

But when she made it into the surgery, she calmed down and was more simply put upon than stressed. So the vet nurse brought Cuddles in to meet her.

Now Monster is not a fan of cats who are not Cookie. We assumed there would be hissing, and were more interested in seeing whether or not Cuddles would freak out as we know that she has spent practically no time around other cats. Cuddles was held by the nurse and Mon was on the table, with two of us guarding her.

What actually happened is that Cuddles was very unsure about the whole thing; not freaked out, but a lot of looking around going 'Where are the cage bars??!' Monster actually did some calming down sniffing and reassuring noises and was very gentle with her. Mr B and I did a lot of eyebrow raising.

If someone else comes to adopt her in the next fortnight, we will just keep looking, as all three cats' vaccinations need two weeks to be in sync, but if not, KITTEN!

And the other important thing: HAPPY BIRTHDAY delvino! I completely forgot to bombard your phone with texts today, and goodness knows my brain is full so I will probably forget again tomorrow, but I have been thinking of you and knowing that you are almost certainly having a fab day because you are surrounded by awesome ;-)

Yaaaay, kitten!

Adam mentioned a kitten recently. I told him I was vetoing any more pets until all human children are toilet trained!

I followed that tale with rapt attention. It seems only yesterday that you only had one cat, then adopted the one who is now so important to the other. Cuddles being timid and unsure might make it work, like older cats get along with puppies/dogs maybe I don't even know good luck
