This I really wasn't expecting. Yesterday afternoon Corinna went out with Helen, and came back not just with the little orange ball of fluff that I wasn't expecting for another ten days, but also with aforesaid orange ball of fluff's sister. We now have one elderly cat, one two year old boarder, and two kittens.
The kittens are not sure what to make of Prudence. When they see her on her feet, they hiss and spit and arch their backs. However when Prudence was lying on her back in bed last night, all they could see was a row of nipples, and being babies they soon latched on (despite the fact that Pru has no milk to give). They spent the whole night cuddled up together, but when they came downstairs this morning, the hissing and spitting resumed. I will keep you posted.
PS: The orange one is still called Captain Frunobulax the Magnificent
