She is here!


This is Tulah!







Now I ask you how could you resist a face like that???
She is a one year old Scottish Fold. They are the laziest breed of cats and are perfect for inside living. Billy only wanted another Scottish Fold for this reason ( we didn't want to add another native killer to the environment). She was looking for a home as an inside cat as she is too small for breeding. She was desexed last week and then hopped on a plane and flew a few thousand miles before arriving in Cairns on Friday.....




She seems to have settled in really well and last night slept on the bed next to me so my empty space has been filled. Not forgotten, but filled. I didn't anticipate such a quick turn around, usually there is a long wait for this breed but the need was there so we filled it.

She is not a kitten and she has been desexed so I don't have to worry about any of that and she is so affectionate, just loves to be stroked and tickled under the chin.

I think it is a good match....




The boys have nicknamed her 'Cammo Kitty' as she just happens to be the same colour as the kitchen lino! LOL Good name I think!

  3. She`s a wee cracker and since she`s clearly affiliated to Scotland I think she should have a lovely Celtic name!

  8. In my short life (ha) I have learned that the only cure for companion grief is to supply yourself with a new one. There is no disloyalty in this at all - rather an affirmation to the buddy you have lost that he has made a place in your life that is deeply important, and in leaving it,has left you with a great aching need for him to be there. So you find someone who can come and sleep by your bed and accept the stroke of your hand - because your old buddy made it necessary. And with a cat - lazy is such a virtue. If you have any left over, send it to me for the pups, will you?

  9. Welcome to the new member of the baa knit family! Fate plays a huge part in our lives sometimes - our dog Sam was found the day after our 12 week old puppy died from a heart defect. I must blog about that some day, I love cats - we have 2 and may buy another kitten for my 11 yer old for xmas - she adores them. Your new baby looks well settled already!

  12. Isn't Tulah lovely! I love the idea of a cat that doesn't kill, very good characteristic isn't it, and I'm impressed that was one of the reasons you got her. She looks like she's settled in really well after her long flight, that's a looong flight! She's gorgeous! Love Vanessa xxx
