our little visitor




















This week, we are looking after a friend's kitten while she and her husband are away on holiday.

This is little Claudia sleeping against Paul's hand. I haven't got her colouring right, but it is a first attempt. When she's awake, she's a hyperactive bundle of cute playfulness and mischief. We think our Jakey wants to play with her, but our other cat Lottie, is not at all pleased and is staying well away. Below are some pictures of Claudia in the flesh. The one of her in our kitchen shows just how tiny she is!!





















To see her sneaking up on Jakey, go here.
