In my last post I said I would share some news with you on how Frankie’s been doing since his sister Missy died. I think he misses her and he seems to be lonely; he’s meowing a lot and wandering in and out of rooms almost searching for her. We have of course been showering him with attention but I feel really guilty leaving him home alone every morning as I go to work. So, rather than having him spend the rest of his life home alone til we finish work every day, we started thinking about getting another cat. Then, kind of out of blue, our vet told us about a little kitten who was found abandoned in a car park, it all fell into place. We went to see her and, of course, took her home!
So here she is, little Lexi! She’s about 8 weeks old, and she’s tiny! Her colouring is actually very similar to Missy’s in photos, but in person Lexi is a little bit darker with more black and grey.
(Sorry about the quality of the photos, she barely stays still for 2 minutes so it’s hard to get a good one of her!)
So far Frankie doesn’t really like her, there has been a lot of hissing, and then he runs away from her and hides up in my room. I’ve never introduced a new cat to an existing one before so I’m not really sure if this is normal?? But he is slowly getting better and the hissing is decreasing each day, but I think it’s going to take another week or maybe more before they’re “friends”. Lexi meanwhile seems oblivious to the fact that she has taken over Frankie’s turf! She’s just happy to play with anything and everything she can get her paws on. Here’s hoping it all settles down soon, I’ll keep you posted…
