    Hello all, meant to do this sooner but forgot with all that has been going on. Thorin has now been with me for 7 weeks, which has flown by! He is still cuddly, vocal and very playful and can be a little terror at times, which I think Boots would agree with :Hilarious He still loves his food has gained around 100g per week since I've had him :eek: He was supposed to be neutered a couple of weeks ago, unsurprising it got cancelled, so will look to rebook as soon as I can. He had a little supervised step into the garden today, but was a bit scared! Will definitely not let him out properly until he's at least one and maybe not even then.

    Boots is still not overly keen but is more comfortable with Thorin, she's now back to sleeping on my pillow, whilst he tends to snuggle up to me. She has been a very clever girl and learnt to use both the cat flap and microchip feeder recently.

    Awww Hi Thorin :) So lovely to see you. Glad things are good, Jojo and hopefully Boots will warm to you more as the weeks go by.

    Lots of love to BLC "Stormzy" ;) xx

    Hello, thought it about time for another update! Thorin is now coming up for 8 months! He's double the weight he was when I got him and is heavier than Boots (she's a petite 3 kg)! He can still be a little terror at times, but such a cuddly softy too. He still likes to jump on Boots so she isn't overly keen, but tolerates him, seems happy and hasn't run away yet! Thorin is finally going to get neutered tomorrow, it was delayed due to lockdown.

    Hope everyone and their furries are keeping well x

    Lovely to see you again Thorin, how you've grown, look at those legs :eek:. Hope all goes OK tomorrow, I would say it will keep him quiet for a while but it probably won't ;)

    Hi Baby Stormzy :)

    I know, I know, you are too grown-up for your baby name now. Thorin, you are looking amazing. Jojo, I hope you are enjoying him being in your family. It's lovely to see you xx

    Ohh gorgeous boy!! I hope tomorrow goes well. I’ve always taken time off work so I can be around when ours have been neutered in case they are a bit groggy or sore. However all of them have erupted from the cat box and rampaged around playing as though nothing had happened to them. Hopefully Thorin will be the same!

    Apologies now for any home wrecking @Jojomomo :oops:

    Thank you! I'd already booked this week off, so the timing has worked out well. He still had lots of energy to bounce around during the night despite missing supper, but was rather cross with not getting breakfast then being bundled into the carrier!

    I'm hoping that was just RD being naughty! :eek:

    Thank you! I think he is gorgeous but know I'm biased! I can't believe how much he's grown but think he's still got a kittenish face :Cat

    I'm loving having him part of the family. Having another feline to cuddle during lockdown has been most welcome and he's even started being quiet when I work from home :D

    He's home, all went well. He cried all the way home and for a bit afterwards, then proceeded to check everything in the flat was still in the same place. He unsuccessfully tried to wash down there with the cone on and is now crashed out me!
