I decided to give Purdie and Oscar a bit of the limelight since G-Cat had a page all to himself! lol. Here are my Babies.
Purdie came to us luckily through a phonecall to the local cattery when I was looking for a kitten. The lady told me there were no kittens ready to be rehomed at that time but a beautiful small cat was looking for a new home, as she had become destructive ripping carpets and scratching at doors because she hated being home by herself. Her owner was rehoming her as she lived in private accommodation.
I popped over to see her in her own home and dropped to my knees on the carpet when i saw her. I fell in love with her instantly. After several hours I took her home! It took a lot of time and gentle persuasion for her to come out from behind the couch and trust us but eventually we got there. I made it a house rule to always leave the doors open and she never once scratched.
Purdie was rather posh when we first got her and would look down on everyone even turning her back to us and raising her head! Very funny to watch. She will be 9yrs old soon and is doing well for her breed, she is ballinese. I am sure whoever named her "Purdie" did so because of the sheer volume of her purr! It transpired that this home was to be her 3rd! and it will be most definately her last.
Oscar was chosen at the cattery several weeks later when Purdie had settled in, as this was to be company for her aswell as a promised pet for my wee treasure. Oscar in fact chose us .He stared at my wee one and she was really taken with this and decided he was the one.
He was certainly a character asa baby, swiping everything from any surface in front of his paws! My fags and lighter was a favourite at that time. He grew into a medium sized tom but never showed aggression at all. he actually acted gay and everybody commented that he "minced" instead of strutting, but I didn't care if he was gay or straight. He was my boy. The funny thing is, he is more "manly" now he has been neutered! Strange boy! lol
Purdie and Oscar are a team and get on like a brother and sister. I would be lost without them.
Take Care, Back Soon. xx
