    His sister, Matilda, is still with us. As she was mourning him badly and refusing to eat we had to get someone to keep her company much sooner than we'd have liked, a rescue kitten named Sophie who's been with us a year. We're lucky: for unrelated cats they get on well, although Matilda is both 'top cat' and 'daft old bat' in Sophie's eyes. We're going to have to get a third cat soon as Sophie can't be an only cat and we don't want to get forced into rushing it as we were after Stephen. We might not get lucky twice.

    We are going to see a new kitten tomorrow. He is adorably and overwhelmingly cute. We now just have to make sure he can get on with the other cats.

    Wow, cute indeed. Here's hoping he stays like that.

    Could the kitten pictures go to a new thread? He is truly delightful, but the Lemon cake thief, chicken stealer, dead bolt thrower and bundles of fine qualities that was Spike deserves his own thread.

    Are Spike and Stephen the same cat? I have a lot of nicknames for my kitties, so I'm assuming that's one of Stephen's. What's this about lemon cake thiefdom? Nothing will surprise me after seeing that picture where Stephen single-handedly escaped his Elizabethan collar.

    He was Spike, and spikey:D. 'Stephen' was his internet name, but since he passed his real name's kinda coming out. Hard to have a memorial with the wrong name on it:confused:.

    I know. It was something CIAS and I argued over, because most people who knew him called him Spike, but most of the web knew him as Stephen, from the blog.

    It's pretty hard this time of year, because everything brings back memories. Like making the mince pies and in my innocence leaving the lard out to soften when the doorbell rang. After all no cat would eat lard, right...? Cue hurried rush buying new ingredients - on Christmas Eve.
