WARNING: Kitty spam ahead!!!!
Friends, I has a sad 🙁 .
Miss 27 has been living with us for the past 6 months, since her marriage broke down.
Now she has moved into her own apartment near the city (no easy feat given the tight rental market and almost non-existent vacancy rate at the moment!).
We will definitely miss her – but I will also miss her two kitties, Maisy and Egg. (She used to have four, but her ex has custody of Annabelle and Delilah 🙁 ).
I’ve really gotten to know these two floofy angels over the past few months, and discovered their sweet personalities.
Meet Elizabeth Egg
In case you were wondering how Egg got such an unusual name … when she was a kitten she was *ahem* rather flatulent, and the smell was just like rotten eggs!
You’ll be glad to know she no longer has that problem, but she IS very shy and makes you work hard for her affection.
Even though our daughter adopted her when she was 21 – when Egg was just a baby – I’ve hardly ever seen her because whenever I visited, she would hide in the cupboards. I would always make a point of stopping to look for her for a quick pat, but that was the extent of our relationship.
Egg has slowly grown to trust me, although she is still often to be found under the bed or couch. But she also loves her bed, as you can see.
What else can I tell you about Eggy-Bread, as I affectionately call her? She LOVES being brushed, if you tap the brush she usually comes running!
We would sometimes lock Miss Fleur away and allow the new kitties to go for a wander around the house for a bit of exercise. Eggy approved of the new rug and couldn’t wait to lounge on it. Apparently blue is one of the few colours cats can distinguish, so no wonder she loved it!
Meet Maisy Mouse
Miss 27 took one look at Maisy on the RSPCA website and fell in love. Yes, she arranged to adopt her even before meeting her, a couple of years ago – it was meant to be. (Her ex never really took to Maisy … says it all really!)
Maisy demands affection but don’t even think about patting her belly, LOL. She loves to give you head boops and snuggle up next to you if you are sitting watching TV or lying on the bed.
She was always the first to greet me when I visited Miss 27’s rooms.
Unlike Egg, she isn’t fussed on being brushed which is a bit of a shame because it would definitely help her keep her gorgeous long fur free of knots.
She has a li’l snaggle tooth which sometimes sticks out though I don’t think you can see it in any of these pics.
Maisy gets a bit jealous when you give Egg pats and love, and begs for your attention too! Whereas Egg is more aloof – she won’t come to you if you’re petting Maisy, so you have to make sure you give Egg attention first!
Both Maisy and Egg have the daintiest little miaows, which surprised me because I am used to Miss Fleur who can be quite vocal and
And these lovely little floofs have loud purrs, which I love. Poor old Fleur’s is almost inaudible, although Seth has quite the motor mower that gets going when I pick him up and cuddle him!
A week or so ago I drove them over to our daughter’s place. It was very sad, but happy at the same time as they were reunited with their mum and going to their new home.
They already have their favourite spots in the new place – Eggy loves looking out the windows, while Maisy appreciates the soft couch.
Gosh I miss these bebes already!
But at least I still have Fleur and Seth 🙂 .
Do you have any grandkitties or grandpups?!
