May I introduce you to....

Ginger and tabby kittens on the stairs

... well, we're not quite sure who as they haven't told us their names.

Ginger and Tabby* arrived yesterday and have been busy exploring their new home. Stairs are quite new to them as they spent the first 12 weeks of their lives in a bungalow. They're not very talkative yet, though we've had purrs from one and chirrups from the other.

NAH found them via a fellow volunteer at Midsomer Norton. He'd taken in their mother - only a kitten herself at around 1 year old - not realising she'd been 'seen to' already by the local tom. Whilst he'd enjoyed their antics, he knew it wasn't a long term option for him and was looking to rehome the pair together as they've bonded really well.

We adore them already.

The kittens explore the kitchen

* = these are the names they came with. We've toyed with Buster and Keaton as their new names, but we're not sure. I suggested Mac (for the mackerel tabby) and Sandy yesterday. The search for their 'proper' names continues...


  1. Oh what sweethearts VP! I see lots of fun and mischief ahead for all you ๐Ÿ˜„

    1. They were quiet when they arrived Anna, but now getting into their stride mischief-wise :)

  2. How sweet, but choose names with care, my then young kids named our current oldest cat Splodge! due to her markings, she is a very stately elderly lady who we now mainly call mama as Splodge is not really a good name for her!

  3. We inherited a cat from my niece, who the little girl had called Sparkles. He was ginger and white and did, sparkle in the sunshine. Cats are very particular about who they talk to - and I think they talk more if we talk to them. But then Thomas can talk the hind leg off a donkey, while Zoe only utters in protest when STARVING!

    Lovely to be able to keep the pair together in your home.

    1. I love the name Sparkles! Their current names are Spot and Skipper - we talk to them a lot :)

  4. They look like gorgeous bundles of trouble!

  5. So adorable!

    I've got 2 rescue cats - Sugar and Silky.
