Originally we decided to name the kittens Blue and Pink – one because they had deep blue eyes and the other because Little Sir decided Pink was a good name for a girl kitten. Thankfully, after a few days of realising that I just couldn’t call ‘Blue’ and ‘Pink’ in the garden, we settled on Margaret and Montgomery – which quickly became shortened to Maggie and Monty – perfect names for these little kittens!
We decided to get our two little Maine Coon cross kittens when we discovered that our beautiful tabby cat, Tinkerbell, had FISS – a type of cancer that was incurable. She’d been with us for almost 6 years – since she was a tiny rescue kitten, and it was so unbelievably heartbreaking to lose her so early on in her life.
We had a good few months with her where we got to say goodbye and give her loads of love and cuddles, but towards the end we starting thinking about our other cat, Boots, who had never lived as an only cat. After talking it all through, we made the decision that we would get a kitten and, after searching online for a reputable breeder, we found our gorgeous kittens!
They genuinely bring such utter delight to our lives. They have delightful personalities! Monty is like a little meerkat – he spends his whole time with his head cocked to one side, watching and listening – then often pouncing on a piece of lego that takes his fancy! Maggie is the intelligent one – she knows what she wants and definitely doesn’t hesitate to boss me around until she gets it!
