Hobbes is currently staring me down with his big, bright, blue eyes. His eyes are so expressive and often it’s easy to guess what he is thinking (or plotting) behind those beautiful windows to his soul. Right now, they are saying “I’m bored. Play with me.” Actually, they almost always say that 🙂
So it’s been decided. We are getting a new kitten from Hobbes’ breeder. A litter was born just after Christmas and one of the kittens is reserved for us from Christmas the year before. Right now the kittens are tiny little bundles of light fur. Some of them are seal points and some of them are flame points (like Hobbes), but right now they look pretty similar. The breeder posted a video of them:
They’re so wiggly and wobbly! I love how the mom just plops down right on top of them.
We had requested a seal point but the only seal point available in the litter is a feisty male who sounds like he’d love getting into trouble with Hobbes. So we asked her to find the cuddliest one of the bunch, male or female, seal or flame point, and that’d be our last feline addition.
So when we get back from Africa, our kitten will be ready to come home!
