Purr fect...

First and foremost, don't think that this Web Log is going to turn from Ports' witty and incisive views on the world into Ports' Kitten World. But since our new kittens Boo and Barney arrived on Monday they have done everything that you would hope a kitten would do with one exception. They haven't purred.

Now this is perfectly understandable since the poor little suckers have only just been taken from their mother and been introduced to an entirely new environment and a totally new Mum and Dad. But it was lovely this evening when Ali, Me and our mate Glastonbury John were chatting away and I started rubbing Barney's neck. Out of the blue he just started purring. John, Ali and I just grinned at each other as he purred away. Now we know he feels safe and at home :-)



It has to be said that Barney wasn't purring in this photo but it brought a lump to my throught when the little fella started going for it. I'm sure that little Boo will feel the same way soon.

Blimey, your cats sound vicious. It actualy went for your throat? No wonder there was a lump in it!

I made em purr Mr P. A little chucky under the chin was all it needed.

Your are quite correct Mr Hoover, you were indeed there when Barney first purred.Boo took a couple more days but now they purr all the time. Little tarts :-)
