Did you guess Right?

I hinted at something special happening in the household in my last post, which i hasten to add was far too long ago.  Well there has been absolutely no knitting!  In fact I had to hastily sort out a plastic lidded box to put my knitting wares in.  This is something I have been meaning to do for ages.  It only held fabric which can go anywhere. I have managed a little sewing and a third rag doll is on her way once I sort her hair out. It is being as recalcitrant, (I so love that word) as my own hair can be.

Right!  On to the reason I have been quiet..........

This little lovely is called Mango.  She is 8 months old and we have re-homed her from a lovely lady who`s cat is her Mum.  Sadly Mango and her Mum do not really get on, so she has come to live here with us.  She is mostly very good, all toilet where it should be and happy to let me sleep all night barring night one.  Obviously, still being a kitten she has her very mad moments but on the whole after a week is settling in just perfectly.
  It has been 13 months since my beloved Mr. Pip had to be put to sleep, and around 8 months since we lost little Tubby to suspected brain tumour.  These little fellas, along with their brother Felix (cant find a pic of hime but will update when i do) who has been gone a while, left a huge hole in our lives and I am sure little Mango is going to go a very long way to, not replace them, but certainly fill the holes.  BTW she came with her name and I was going to change it, but I think it has finally rolled off my tongue enough to stick.


  1. what a cutey, bet mango will bring lots of joy and entertainment to you. I know what you mean, they don't replace but forfill a hole/need, I have a rabbit shaped hoole thats currently filled with 2 fab bunnies but i never forget those who came before. give mango a big love from me!

  2. She's adorable and I'm sure she is lots of fun:)

  3. She is lovely - I look forward to many more posts on her antics!!

  4. Awww, she is lovely! :o)
