Security: Public
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.)

But of course.

I've been idly musing on the possibility of naming the male Tevildo, after the Lord of the Cats in Tolkein's Lost Tales.

This would be amusing, since the kittens' father is named Frodo Baggins.

(Names for the female are yet to be considered.)

If we do that, on current evidence we'd probably have to pay royalties to Christopher Tolkein.

We shall have to ask Crystalpaws how they resolved the problem.
