Your Hammy is so cute Karolina!

And Teddi and Ralph couldn't look more relaxed if they tried. I'm sure your other two will be more calm when they can see the newcomers and Suss them out a bit

Takes time and is stressful getting there though.

Expensive! but worth it obviously. Just frightening what you commit to when owning a cat. I don't remember it being that way when I was younger, but then I wouldn't have been the one paying the bills. . .

I know, especially when they can live till they are 20.  These two are only 21 months old so we are in for the long haul.

Well hopefully at least, my last two cats have died relatively early :(.  Especially the one in my avatar who was only six.  I still miss her.

Six is way too young. I've lost a couple at eleven and felt very robbed at that.

Here's to a nice long, expensive life for these two cuties!

Gorgeous cats. My black and white lived to 24. Be a lovely clay project in some of those poses

Well Sylvia, you are very right.

I'm going to have to rethink my set up of where I can clay.  With 4 cats, there is one in each room and I've never seen so much fur.  I spend half the time pulling it out of my mouth so there's no way that claying would work.

Oh dear, what have I done?

Well I think so far it's going pretty well.  Just call me the cat whisperer :)

Still the odd hiss and swipe, but nothing major.

They look very relaxed together - amazingly quickly too

So it's been six weeks.  Polymer clay is on the back burner though as the fur situation has been terrible.  I've just got round to completely cleaning the conservatory as there are no soft furnishings in there for the fur to collect so should be able to use the table.  A bit chilly in there still when the sun goes in.

The cats are all getting on ok.  The smallest one is still a bit twitchy, but I've bought a massive cat tree and she sits right on the top of it and I think she feels safe there:

Teddi is still an indoors only cat but I've been taking him outside on supervised trips as well as on a lead and harness that he isn't too keen on.

However, this can't be right surely?  -
