I am still waiting to get two rescue kittens and am hoping to go to Battersea next week, as well as visiting the local CPL again. The thing is that due to another thread on this site that I have been following this week I am now really hesitant about getting a cat from a rescue shelter. I really want a ginger and tabby kitten as this is what my DH and I grew up with. I am now afraid that I will get attitude from the staff for having such requests and am not sure I can deal with it. The lady from the RSPCA didn't think it odd at all and just noted my requirements when she came for the home visit, but after some of the postings in the other thread I am wondering whether not everyone will be this way. I am starting to feel like a real b*tch because I am fussy but this doesn't mean I can't provide a loving home to a cat. I had our cat for 16 years and up till now I resisted getting another cat because I was grieving, we were not settled, and then because our son was too young. On another note, during the home visit the lady from the RSPCA said everything was fine and then text to say she would call when they had the right kitten for me, but I was never officially told we 'passed' the home visit, as other people seem to have had. Should I take her text as a 'yes' or should I call to ask?
