So yesterday we welcomed a new little man into our family. His name is Basil and he is 4-5 months old. We adopted him from the RSPCA and already he has made his way into our hearts. As I type this, he is snuggled into Toby's side on the couch as they have a Sunday nap together.

Since Sandy's passing, we've spoken about getting another cat. We've missed having a pet in the house and both of us would like for Tilly to grow up around animals. Of course we've had to be careful about bringing in a new animal with such a young child so we were in no rush.

It was sunny yesterday and we had a morning free so we decided to venture to the RSPCA, not expecting to find a new pet. We went just for a cuddle. I've had my eye on their website for a few months looking and 'Toby' (Basil's name before we renamed him!) didn't look appropriate from his 'bio', however on meeting (and falling for) him and later talking to an adoption officer (who said he would have suggested him for us) we decided to put him on hold until today. We were back in 3 hours to bring him home! Lucky though that we put the hold on because a number of groups inquired about him after we left and asked to put holds on top of our hold in case we chose not to adopt him. The officer said that he was a perfect fit for our family and that we were unlikely to pass him. He knew us well!

So here he is... and expect to see lots of this snuggly boy in the future!
