We have another new member of the family. Meet Batman.

There was no way we were getting another kitten. The present cat incumbent Pannucci rejoices in being an only cat and has come into his own following the demise of the previous two during the last year. He is bossy, talkative in the extreme and makes Ozzie's life hell on occasions.

But we keep being offered kittens . . . .

Batman is our first completely black cat. His mother is, apparently, a pedigree. A pedigree what? Josh (who procured Batman) didn't ask.

So far Batman and Ozzie are friends. More or less.

Batman and Pannucci are not. But we've had him less than 24 hours so we have a while to go before we reach a verdict.


  1. Congratulations! We lost our last cat a couple of weeks ago and have decided to be cat-less for the first time in 36 years. I'm not sure how long it will last while people keep showing me pictures of kittens though!

  2. Sorry to hear about Lucifer Sue. He'd had a good innings though.

    Maybe a cat will adopt you . . . .

  3. He is very cute! Funny how they adapt to being only children. We've realised that we will never be able to have another cat because Miss Urchin would not tolerate it.

  4. He looks very sweet. Love the fact that he's found his way up into the bookshelves already.
