Our very good friends from The Netherlands, Katja, Fafnir and Snuitje have "adopted" a new kitty. Here is what Auntie Katja wrote:
The picture shows Loetje (formerly known as Kareltje) whom I had neutered last friday. He was given 'a clean bill of health' by the vet (FIV/FeLV tested and negative !), had him vaccinated also because I hoped he would accept 'shelter' inside when it gets colder again (in a few months)....... Well, that went differently as planned: the night before and after his operation I had him locked in in the bathroom, but the next day I put him outside again (it's beautiful weather) and he refused to leave, sat the whole day meowing in front of my window.... Of course I fed and petted him, but left him outside during the night. The same the next day and the day after. He only left the garden for a few short walks and in the night he slept under/in a car because tuesday his coat was full of engine oil again...so yesterday after work I let him in again and he stayed the night. He is lying in my lap at the moment :) Faffie doesn't mind much but Snuitje is very scared of him...so I feel a bit guilty towards her. But I have the feeling it's going ro work out okay. Though I don't plan to leave them together when I'm not there yet: today I had the day off, but tomorrow when I leave for work he has to stay outside for the day.
We are purraying that Loetje gets to become a permanent member of their family!
