I would like to introduce the newest member of our family. His name is Purcey….because he Purrs!
We’ve had him since last Saturday but first visited and “chose” him 6 weeks ago – it’s been agony keeping him secret (just in case anything went wrong). Dad was a Ragdoll and Mum was a Ragdoll/Maine Coon cross so hopefully he will be big and fluffy and soppy!
This was Purcey at 3 weeks old…
He is as adorable as he looks and Ben and I are besotted – Ben especially as he’s never had a kitten of his own before 🙂
The girls are not too happy with Purcey – Ziggy (little Miss Confidant) has done a lot of hissing and growling and is now ignoring him and coming around to the fact he’s here. Kitty (Miss”I’m scared of my own tail”) is a worry. She has gone from being frightened of being outside to barely coming in and staying out all night – it might be exacerbated because of the heatwave but she’s terrified of Purcey and runs off as soon as she see’s him 🙁
She’s still coming back for food and cuddles so all body parts are crossed that she’ll get over it.
All my “cat friends” say the girls will sulk but come round – I’m hoping that eventually they will mother him – long way from that right now.
Purcey has a lot to live up to, following Thug on my blog but he has already proven himself to be a photogenic little poser 😀
Just look at this ridiculously cute pose…
Or this arty pose with a feather..
I really do still miss Thug and Mewsley, even with Kitty and Ziggy doing their best to cuddle me. Purcey is a ginger tom-cat to remember Thug and named Purcey (because he purrs) in honor of Mewsley (who said “Mew”) 🙂
Purcey just encountered Kidsilk Haze – buried his face in the center of the ball and purred – that’s my boy 😀
Unfortunately, waggling knitting needle are irresistible to him so my knitting may be curtailed over the next couple of weeks 😳
He’s worn out now and having a little sleep – more from Purcey very soon 🙂
