Rosie is the new member of our family, a gorgeous black tortoiseshell! Here she is just after coming home from the shelter - looking pretty relaxed and chilled out! Help Save The Furry Ones is an amazing organisation run by amazing volunteers, and our charity of choice. Rosie had been with them for 12 months ... so I guess it was time for her to find her furrever home ;)
We wanted another small animal to be Frankie's playmate, since Charlie just gets grumpy when Frankie wants to play. After looking at rescue small dogs, and realising how much competition there is for them, we decided to get another kitty, preferably an adult who had been at the shelter for a little while. Rosie is between 18 and 24 months, so not much younger than Frankie. They are still checking each other out, but I think they will be very good friends ;)
I took this pic just after they met ... Frankie was curious, and though Rosie hissed a couple of times, she wasn't too bothered either. Charlie is another story - she's been growling, but not as much as when we got Frankie. I'm hoping that Charlie calms down, and realises that Rosie will get Frankie off her back ;)
