Jam the cat in her foster home on Saturday. Although she was gorgeous and sweet (and I probably would've taken her on the spot if I could've), we have decided that a special needs cat isn't the right thing for us, as we just don't have the time to give the cat the attention that it would need.
We're going to get two kittens, I think. The sight of James and a six-inch tall grey kitten staring each other out at the rescue centre won me over.
But if you do want a gorgeous black shiny cat who has just started to purr for the first time (arghhh! heartstrings!) then call the Mayhew Animal Hospital and ask about Jam.
