Soon to be cat owner, hopefully

I went to the visit the Cat Protection League today, they had over hundred adult cats to look at, all cute and adorable.

After asking me a bit about myself, and what I wanted from a cat, they made a few suggestions showed me a dozen or so, but I went back the first one the woman showed me a part Siamese, called Jasmine.
She is a year and half old, I found her hiding under her bedding, but she came out and made a fuss and then purred like mad, when stroked.
Jasmine likes staying indoors so is ideal for a busy road, but as soon as I had finished looking at her a couple with 2 children took her out and seemed quite taken and so expected her to have gone by time I returned, she had not so I have reserved her.

The Cat Protection League do insist on home visits to check you out, this is arranged for Thursday during my lunch hour, so once that's sorted I expect to collect her next weekend.

Feeling very happy and wishing next weekend was here now

And a thank you to all those who have been looking for cats me especially Stephen who provided lots of leads, and Julie who provided useful links and sparked a interest in an adult cat rather than a kitten, I didn’t expect to be so taken.
