Before we made the final decision to keep kittens, I spent ages working out the cost of them, both in financial and time terms. There was one thing that I forgot or didn't realise. That thing was how much fun and happiness these two bundles of fur have brought to all, three generations, living here.
Of course, we've been reading a few related books:
The tale of Tom kitten by Beatrix Potter
My pet kitten by Honor Head
Alfie and the birthday surprise by Shirley Hughes
Mrs Katz and Tush by Patricia Polacco
The little kitten book by Elizabeth Martyn and David Taylor
Hairy Maclary's Rumpus at the vets by Lynley Dodd-about a dog as well as various other animals but fitted in well with visiting the vet for immunisations. For anyone who has read the book, our visit to the vet wasn't quite like Hairy Maclary's!
