Déjà Vu All Over Again!

I love the quotes of Yogi Berra, and one of my favourites is..
"It's like déjà vu all over again"
and I think it is the perfect title for todays post.

Those of you who have been following the blog for some time will remember how we ended up with a cat by the name of Diego.

...Creeps in on little cat feet.

Smitten by the Kitten!

And how him and our bunny rabbit, Larry, have become best buds and playmates.

The Cat and Bunny Show

Well it seems we have a new addition to the family. Her name is Bindi and this is her story.

Bindi (because of the dot on her forehead)

It all started when I heard Tao, the boxer next door, barking in an uncharacteristic manner.
Upon investigation I saw he had a kitten frozen with fear in the garden. All Tao knew was someone who wasn't part of his family was in his yard, so he barked at it. He wouldn't hurt it, and had no idea what to do with it so he decided he should just bark louder.

Once I got the dog to settle down, the kitten took off like a shot! While all this is happening I am thinking back to the day before when I saw our new neighbour walking down the street saying "here kitty, kitty, kitty" Ahhh, says I, this must be the wayward cat, and I should try and grab it.

So after some hunting we have found the kitten up a tree. With a little help from our ladder the kitten is rescued. It seems like it is 2 or 3 months old. A quick chat with neighbours reveals that the missing cat from the day before was a full grown black cat that was found almost as quickly as it was lost.

It looks like we have a new kitten.

Stay tuned for the Cat and Bunny Show, Part II

We will see how they all fit together, but so far Larry the rabbit and Bindi get along great.
Bindi and Diego will take some time, I think the term "Hissy fit" would be an appropriate description for that meeting.

Tonight's plan has them both in the den with us while we watch a movie, I have my fingers crossed.

One of the sweetest looking kittens I've ever seen.......she and the bunny look like they are "made for each other"

Thanks for all the kind comments!

Yes Larry the rabbit is a little round, I think we are similar in that area. LOL!

Diego and Bindi are coming along, slowly but surely.
