Welcome Onyx!

So we went up to the Animal Welfare Centre locally to visit the charity shop and ended up with a new cat... because there was this lovely old  gentleman cat, black to a hair, and purring firmly at us when we walked past his cage...
So his name is Onyx, which is a good name for a black cat, and moreover he was onyxpected....
We couldn't put him in the bathroom, it was the hottest day of the year and it gets HOT in there, but Onyx didn't care.  He just settled in.  We've had him 6 days now, and you'd think he'd been a member of the family forever, he's such a gentle old boy, and so loving.  He's taken possession of my bed....


and he and Mackie have a friendly rivalry to see who can make sleep and Olympian sport.
