Well not exactly. Welcome to Belicious Honeysuckle Blossom(Honey for short) she was born on the 16th January 2014 at Otane, near Hastings, New Zealand. She is a Sealpoint Birman and just beautiful. Only 6 months old she was speyed last week and Derek will take her stitches out while I am away in Auckland next week (although we can only see one, we think she has taken the others out herself)
We had set our hearts on another beauty and although she had been promised to us, the breeders decided to keep her themselves for showing. This all happened within 12 hours of us picking her up.
But never mind Honey although second choice originally, we think it was meant to be as her colouring is better and she has a lovely nature.
We intend to take her away in the motorhome so we have some training to do with a harness. You should have seen her in our collapsible basket that we brought her home in. Hardly a murmur and she kept her eye on Derek in the passengers seat most of the way.
