Sara's cat, Fang, just recently produced a litter of four - three identical females and one lighter male kitten. Their eyes have just opened and they're starting to move around on their wobbly little legs. So precious.

Meanwhile, over at Rob's house, their latest addition is a remarkable Bengal cat. Rob is the reason we didn't have cats while the kids were growing up. We learned early on that he was allergic to them. When he and Cindy decided to get a pet for the kids, Rob visited the SPCA and rescue agencies and systematically handled different breeds of cats...just one breed a day...to see if his allergies reacted to them. And they did, he was allergic to all except one, the Bengal cat. When they decided they could safely have this type of cat, the one he handled had already been adopted. So they contacted a breeder who had the perfect cat for them. She's a year old, spayed, and family friendly. So she's now a part of their family. And she's beautiful.

She looks like a little leopard, such beautiful markings and she moves with the stealthy grace of a jungle cat. She's a small, sleek cat with the silkiest fur I've ever felt. Sometimes her breed is called cashmere bengal, and I totally see why.
Maybe when Lloyd and I finally stop travelling and moving around we'll get a cat of our own and I'll happily become a cat lady. There's always something to look forward to :) In the meantime, as we visit our children and grandchildren, we'll enjoy our grandcats as well.
