Not going to the ball - yay!

We just had a phone call. And we will not be going to Swecon this year (which is a shame, because bellinghwoman would have liked to show her friends the Stockholm she knows).

Instead, we shall - all things going well - be receiving a pair of kittens. One will be a Usual Abyssinian tom, and the other will be a Fawn Abyssinian queen.

(In Aby terms, Fawn is a pinkish cream.)

Unusually, the dam is US bred, though born in the UK. (Importing a pregnant queen must have been interesting, though - I'm not sure how the quarantine period compares to the length of feline pregnancy.)
