Miscalculation and some cat books

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!


  1. I think I would be totally distracted by new pets, if I had any. They're so adorable! How lucky of you to be able to have them.

    1. They certainly are a distraction! Interestingly, they don't seem to want to be around the children while they are working. Perhaps because they aren't in the warmest place in the house.

  2. Regarding cat books, have you read Derek Tangye’s book “A Cat in the Window”? The author was definitely a “dog person” rather than a “cat person” – until Monty arrived!

    1. No, I haven't. One of my aunts really likes his books. I will ask her if she has it.
