    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    We have two sets of cats and barn cats. Our barn cats all came with the property we purchased. All have been spayed and neutered, but can't be house-cats because they all have the feline version of herpes. Very contagious, so they must remain as much-loved barn kitties.

    Then we have our two house-cats. Also much-loved, but never go outside. They are both British Shorthairs...and we are crazy about the breed - and the best part is, I'm not allergic to them!! They are affectionate, but not clingy....funny without being hyper active....and I just LOVE their round faces!

    We would like to add a female to our cat-crew....and we're having trouble deciding between these two females (will be spayed - we don't breed).

    The breeder reports both are uber friendly and confident - typical of the breed - (despite the photo of the black-smoke kitten).

    Which one do you like????

    Here is the blue and white female:

    Here is the black smoke female:

    They are both darling, but I'd go with the black smoke female.

    Usually, when I am thinking about adding a new animal, I let them choose me. Of course, I am usually drawn to color first, but usually the animal I "click" best with are not the prettiest at all! LOL

    Oh dear... They are both adorable! It would kill me to have to pick just one. [​IMG]

    But if I were to really work hard on narrowing my preferences... And if I were you, and if I considered that Tugger is a solid gray, and Frosty is a solid black... And... Well, it's not working! [​IMG] For color cuteness I'd get the blue and white -- it looks like she has a little tiny beard with that blue spot on her lower lip.

    I'd go w/ the black smoke, since you already have a gray.

    I would get both (easier on kittens probably) but if I really had to choose I would probably take the grey and white one or just see which one likes me more.
