The little girl was so excited she kept the dad awake all night chatting away...
The kittens (three of them) all found good homes. The cat then went on to have three other litters, with lots of interestingly named kittens... Some of the best names were:
- Fantastic Dan And His Super Sonic Cows (courtesy of The Teen)
- Miaow (Courtesy of Teen Two)
- Joe Pineapples (The Teen)
- Blinky (The Teen)
- Private Snowball (a totally white cat) (The Teen)
- Barry (Teen Two)
- Mort (Me!)
- Smelly Cat (yours truly)
- Deadlock (Teen Two)
- Oreo (Mwa)
- Crunch (Me too! G*d I am good at this!)
- Buitiful Kitten (You guessed it... Mini- Teen)
- Spot (the one with the view) (I want to swap bedrooms with her, but she just won't let me!) (that's mum)
- Pingu ( He does kinda look like a penguin...) (Well, what do you think? Yes, it was me! Who else? Honestly...)
And there's so many more than that...
Of course, we all know the grand total is 36. Not joking. We kept one from the first litter (Fantastic Dan), two from the second (Spot and Blinky. Unfortunately one Christmas he died... The family next door ran him over. A very sad Christmas indeed for all involved...) and one from the last (Miaow). Then bad things happened and we had to move!!! We couldn't catch all the cats, so Spot moved in with the next door neighbours (the good ones on the other side, not the muderers), Dan is still terrorising small children who live in the small part of London by the pond. Mrs T was taken to the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, who also take pets in and they will let you adopt them for free) with a large donation. Another very sad time for all involved.
Then one day a pond lady came and gave us Miaow, and the RSPCA were closed so the little girl spent the night in the kitchen with her. After that they realised even though they lived in a rented house so couldn't really keep her, they could hide her from the landlord (if only they'd figured that out earlier!...).
Then they moved into a house with a roof terrace which had a hammock on it. It was very fun there, and many more cats were born. Currently they have eleven: 6 new kittens (there were 7 and they would be called the 7 Dwarfs, but one is now sleeping...), Miaow, Smelly Cat (who left yesterday!), Pingu, Barry and Buitiful Kitten.
Mini-Teen (for the record, year eight is NOT mini!)
P.S. what is up with American Thanksgiving???
