Hi Blaire - I feel quite privileged to be invited to be your friend! I promise to get an avatar up soon, so at least I won't just look like a big blobby question mark. Trust you've had some rest,
No, I did not know about orange cats being usually boys. I had a light orange boy hamster, when a child. He was very productive with the black fur girl hamster, making a lot of black babies
I do know little about the cats, I have only had hamsters and a dog. After she passed I just could not take a new dog.
Octavia is all grown up then. Good for her going out to see the world
