Thanks for popping in. Our friend Gina – she who found the little ginger Toms we adopted – sent me a photo this morning, with a message:
Happy Found Day to the Vikings!
Yep. Ragnar and Erik were found a year ago today, abandoned and frightened.
I remember seeing Gina’s post on Facebook. She was looking for a home for them. After speaking to Dave, I reached out to her. “Can we have them, please?”
And the rest is history. Ragnar and Erik, our little Viking orphans, had found a home together. Gina wanted to find a home which would take both, and we wouldn’t have wanted to split them up! That was such – SUCH – a good decision! We drove up to Middle England to collect them – and a year on, they are still inseparable, still brothers and best buddies, still beautiful.
They are pretty much identical. Sometimes they play fight – and the fur do fly! But mostly they are very affectionate to one another and protective of one another. Especially if a neighbour’s cat ventures into their kingdom! Then look out!!
Just imagine if we had split them up. Doesn’t bear thinking about. If one ventures out alone, after a while the other one gets agitated and hovers around the back door. Who knew that identical twin cats would be that attached intuitively.
And they’re proper creatures of habit. They fall in with our daily routines like clockwork. In fact, if we’re a little late to Telly time and a Log fire in the living room, which is how we spend our evenings, then Erik sits at the door to the lounge and waits for us
In fact, Ragnar has come to find me! Look!! Little purr machine!
Must be time for lunch!! I never saw myself as a mad cat-lady, or a cat-mad lady either! And to be sure, I really am not. But these two have stolen my heart. They are wonderful.
Happy Found Day !!! Happy Found Vikings Day!!
Love and Hugs
