I've double-checked, and I'm pretty sure no one else has started a new picture thread. Let's start of with some kitties, shall we? Just over two weeks ago we adopted two cats from our local Cats Protection shelter. They're either sisters, or mother and daughter. Here's 14-year-old Lizzie: She's a very sweet little kitty who just wants a comfy couch to sleep on and the occasional scritch behind the ears. And here's 13-year-old Lucy on my 12-year-old son's lap: As you can see, she's made herself right at home. If there's a lap available, she's on it if she's inside. She's still quite active for an older girl, and is enjoying exploring our back garden. Now if only they would stop hissing at our poor dog, who only wants to be their friend!
