New Addition to the Family Home.

Forget Britany Spears, let me introduce you to Chilly the Persian. Eight week old tom cat, colour is referred to as champagne. Chilly is currently hyperactive in one hour spurts and then sleeps for three or four hours at a stretch.
When we were in the UK we used to have two Persians, a brother and a sister and we had them both for fifteen years unfortunately old age catches up with them and they went to the great cattery in the sky. We held off getting any more cats until we had settled in here in Gozo.

We saw an add in the Malta Times and took our first trip to Sliema in Malta. We did some shopping, (that is the royal we) met up with a fellow expat for coffee for the first time in person to share relocation experiences, us from London and Ilene fresh in from the U.S.A. Ilene's blog can be seen here.

And now the pictures.

Looking very angelic.

Very impolite.

About to pounce on one of those huge Gozitan killing ants.

A very good impression of a gremlin.
