Our new little chap is settling in very well. He is impressively confident, stomping round the house as if he is ten feet tall, shouting and eating anything he can get near enough to (in addition to actual cat-food, he has so far tried a pea, some brussels sprout leaves, yoghurt, a freshly-made chocolate-orange fairy cake and artificial Christmas tree).
Although he is so small he would come off worse in a fight with a cowardly guinea-pig and doesn’t even depress the keys on my MacBook, resident cats Florence and Willow are afraid of him and have spent all day hiding.
I still haven’t re-named him; I haven’t yet found true inspiration. Among others, I have considered the following themes:
- 2012 Olympic champions
- the festive season
- chocolate (he is a chocolate tabby-point)
- Greek mythology and ancient history in general
- P.G. Wodehouse
- Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings
Tweet or FB me if you have any genius ideas, because we can’t keep calling him no-name.
