Fergus...

In November I acquired a kitten... (You see how much has changed since I last blogged)



Initially, I named the kitten Fergus, because it is a perfectly respectable name to give to a male kitten who was born in Scotland. Plus the kitten looked like a Fergus. I looked at it, and said - "Fergus"

So, imagine my shock when I took the kitten to the vet to be neutered, and they told me that she was a girl. :-) Haha, the people I got her from thought she was a boy, and I didn't question it, because I am the world's worst at sexing kittens. Ah well. It does look like she has testicles, but apparently - to quote the vet - "it's just a bit of jobbie"

So, yes - that's right - we mistook a bit of poo for testicles. It's all very funny, but it did cost me an extra 14 quid at the vet's... ah well. Fergus however has had to be renamed officially. Unofficially I still call her Fergus at home. I decided to change her name to Fergie - short for "Lady Sarah Ferguson" the long form of her name - which I use when I'm angry at her.

Ferg has been a real comfort to me at times, she's a snuggler - but she's also extremely playful. This is normal for a kitten I suppose. She's growing so fast now though - she's almost an adult. It's nice to have another soul in the house. She's lovely company. I'm glad to have her around.

You thought poop was testicles?

Haha... no she actually has a bit of brown fur around her girly bits that looks like testicles. I think the vet was just being funny...
