Oh, is Terry Pratchett a cat lover? I assumed as much from Death's disapproving "I suppose you like great big dogs" in...er...Wyrd Sisters, I think. And also Death's general love for kitties. And he did that cat book, of course. Duhhh...
I never twigged before now. I am a stoopid.
Well then, I will announce it here! I'm getting a new kitty! He's black and he's called Bertie and we're not allowed to take him home until the 28th of September, though we're sorely tempted to kidnap him. He'd just fit in a pocket.
Our last kitty was a wedding present from my brother, also a Maine Coon, and the most beautiful and affectionate cat in the world, and sadly had to be put to sleep at 21 months old (!) because he had a very aggressive cancer in his mouth and throat
I think that was the hardest thing I've ever done - the vets *make you say it*, which is quite understandable but still pretty rough.
Anyway, who wants pictures of Bertie?
