|The birthday felines - Fluffy, Twiggy and Shelley curled up together in bed|
If you've been following me for a while you might have read my posts about how I "inherited" my cats.
It started with the 2 females who used to pop around when we bought our house. Both had pink collars and looked well fed. I used to pop little notes on their collars to see where they belonged, but I never got a reply. A short while late we discovered they were pregnant and then they both gave birth to 4 kittens each, on the same day, just outside my son's bedroom window. A week later we brought them inside as it was cold and wet.
Five of the kittens were adopted, my son wanted to keep one of the male ginger cats - "Fluffy", and then we kept the 2 "ugly" tortoise shells that didn't get adopted - "Shelley" and "Twiggy".

The mothers have unfortunately died young - "Mommy" in March 2014 mauled by the neighbour's dog, and "Baby" in February 2015 with liver cancer.
So we started with 2, then 10, then 5 and now we have three!
Happy 11th to my babies!
