As most of you know, the Tiddlers aren't officially ours but we look after them for a flighty young neighbour.
When she moved in a couple of years ago they were both very small puss cats - you hold them both in one arm. Hence they aquired the name 'The Tiddlers'. They were both about the same size and loved playing together and chasing each other about. So we always assumed they were sisters.
Well yesterday Neighbour told me that Margaret is actually Billies mother
Apparently she had 2 litters before they eventually got around to getting her spayed.
Billie is from the second litter.
I was really surpsied to hear that Margaret is a little momma. It's like when a character in a soap opera finds out that their sister is really their Mum
BTW, neither of them are so tiddly any more - especially Billie who is bigger than her mum now!
