The kids have been on about wanting a kitten for ages. I wasn’t so sure but eventually said yes, we’d get one after our holiday. As I’m involved with West Oxfordshire Cats Protection I knew that they had lots and lots of kittens to rehome so I mentioned to them that we might be looking for a kitten …a couple of days after we got back from our holiday I had a phone call! Teddy was local to me and looking for a new home …
We went to see Teddy and everyone fell in love with this energetic little black and white kitty. The deal was done and I found myself bringing him home that day! The kids were over the moon but our other cat Chester wasn’t impressed – especially as he was already feeling sorry for himself as he had an injury and had to wear an anti-scratch collar for a few weeks.
Anyway, Teddy (silly name!) soon became Socks and after a gradual introduction and a little bit of animosity, within just a few days Chester was beginning to accept his new housemate.
My friend Mark came down the weekend after we adopted Socks and made this lovely film!
