My SiL has taken on two new rescue kitties. Above is the Rt Hon Merlin. He's about 1 year old, very friendly with soft silky fur and a gentle purr.
This is the shy but friendly Miss Kitty, she is the size of a 6 month old kitten but is actually 3 years old. She spent most of the evening under a table but seemed to like M, she gave his hand a severe washing.
One of their two original kitties - this is the tiggerish Mr Boy, he is soooooo slinky. Rosie his sister was AWOL.
And of course this gallery would not be complete without a bit of border love - here's the Rubster.
