Life with Rolo and Monty

Rolo and Monty are settling in really well. They’re becoming tearaways who love chasing up and down the stairs and around the hallway. When they duck into the kitchen and switch from carpet to lino, they need full opposite lock as they drift around the corner!

When they wind down, if I’m not sitting on my spot on the sofa, they like to occupy it. I think I should take that as a compliment! Here is Rolo in occupation. He looks a fraction worried, which isn’t his natural expression. He’s a very self-possessed little pussy-cat. It’s usually Monty who can look a little worried.

When they get tired, they love a lap, so here they both are in Stephen’s lap.

Here is Monty by himself in Stephen’s lap. This is a typical Monty expression. I’ve also managed with the help of my computer to bring out his striped nature. From a distance, he looks black, but he isn’t. He’s got more and more grey showing through and we think he will grow into a dark tabby.

I took another picture of Monty which I was going to include here, but it’s worthy of a separate post all to itself, so watch this space!
