After the tragic road death of Java, our beloved Burmese cat, we knew there would be a replacement at some stage. For us, living without a cat is not an option, but we thought we’d wait a fair while. Then we learned that Java’s breeders, Bob and Nicki MacKenzie, had a new litter from the same parents Java had. At the same time we had an email from my brother Peter, who last year lost a teenage Burmese (also hit by a car). He and Doris had agonised over whether to get a replacement straight away, but decided to anyway. Peter said they were very glad they did and advised us to consider it. So this afternoon we called in and looked at the kittens, which will be available to take away in August.
Here’s the litter of kittens. Ours is the light coloured one.
The deja vu part of this post’s headline is that I wrote something very similar only a year ago.
