Now they’re thriving and very bored with foster care – really looking […]

Introducing …

… two new feline fosterees, staying with me for a while to recover from losing their guardian and fending for themselves for a few months. They remind me of feline friends of mine from years gone by – Granny Weatherwax and Inky – tho they are much younger – around 6 years we think. Both […]
