Yoni kitten

April 16th 2009

We got a kitten on Tuesday!

I’ve wanted a cat since I was a tiny girl but my dad’s allergic so I was never allowed, so I’m pretty excited. I posted an ad on Gumtree on Tuesday morning and luckily the perfect little guy needed a new home right away (due to an allergic owner who was sad to see him go). He was mewling away on the cab ride back but he’s been a really good boy and is settling into his new home well.


He’s 4 months old so still very little, but in 2 months he’ll be three-quarters of his adult size. As you can see he’s a pretty tabby with a white nose, tummy and socks and spotty, almost Bengal-esque markings on his back. We named him Yoni (yo-knee) after the frontman of Why? which is a bit geeky but it’s a cute cat name, no?


He’s had a really good first week settling in, sniffing round the flat and finding his favourite spots. He loves to sit on his tree and gaze out of the window and his favourite games are nipping your toes and dashing along the corridor at full pelt! He loves the mousey I knitted him and loves mauling my handmade sock monkey, too.

I’ll try to limit the squeeeee-cat!-ness on this blog but if you like that kind of thing, I’m sure my flickr will be regularly topped up with photos.

    Oh My Gosh! I can’t see the photos cos silly work have blocked anything fun, but I am excited to see them when I get home!
    Alex and I get our little tabby kitten in June when we arrive back from Primavera! I’m so excited, I’ve visited her a few times and she’s so adorably tiny (I saw her at 4 days old – she’s a friends cat’s baby). She has no name as yet and we’ve taken to calling her Nanocat for now. Kitten excitement!!
    I plan to knit some toys too! I hope you and Yoni are very happy together xxx
