It's Elementary My Dear...

Hello Everyone,

Meet our newest addition to our family, Watson! Yes, as in Dr. Watson from Sherlock Holmes.  We are fans of both the kitty, the characters, and BBC show.


If you are regular readers of my blog you know that 2 of our kitties passed in 2011 and we had our dearest Pavi as the only kitty left.


We really thought that Pavi would be our last kitty, but the hubs thought that Pavi would really like a little brother.


All of us loved the idea!  We called the local shelter and they actually had 3 kittens at our own vet.  So we went a few days after Christmas and spent an hour with all three.  Such a difficult decision, because we knew we could only take one.  We would have loved all of them.


We decided on Watson, who is playful, sweet, has a very timid meow, and loves to sit in your lap.  He is 9 weeks old so he has a lot of growing to do to catch up to his big brother Pavi.  Right now they are getting used to each other.

By the way, his name was Spice when we picked him up and knew it had to be changed.


Hmmm... it looks like Watson might just like fabric too! 


Until Next Time...

Lovely to meet you Watson, what a handsome boy you are!! I'm glad to see that Mum is training you up to be a great lover of quilts! Have fun in your new family I look forward to seeing more photo's of you and your new brother! xo

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Watson. If we got new kitties right now, I'm sure my 14-yr-old daughter would name them Sherlock and Watson (we have an orange kitty that could be Watson's brother, named Weasley, so you can understand her other literary favorite...). The daughter knows that the contemporary version of Sherlock debuted in the UK last night (won't be on PBS here for a few months...). I'm sure she will be looking for YOUTUBE videos of it today!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

With a name like Watson, be prepared for lots of investigation going on.
Very sweet little guy, who I am sure will be a wonderful family addition.

What a sweet kitty, and glad he found a new home with you. I had one, then my son left his here, then Moki showed up one day, lol. We lost Dora this year, so it was nice to have the other kitties to comfort me. We always have kittens at the shelters.
