After vacationing in Ireland, then a road trip, then family arriving from Australia, followed by a month-long road trip to Colorado (and Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and Oregon), then the return of the Aussies, then cat sitting the adorable Murphy... (whew!)... we've started the hunt for a kitten or two.
It's been a bit over six months since we lost our last cat, James. She was an American Shorthair, with the swirl pattern on her coat, but was much bigger boned. So I think she probably had some Maine Coon in her; they have the same patterned coat.
But this wee girl is pretty cute. She and her siblings were in an old stable block on a farm in Ireland. Escape artist? She'd fit right in at our house!
