Batman's story

Batman is the son of my Squidgy-Jerry and lovely Lucy and is an adorable combination of both his parents.  He is a sweet, silly and sociable boy who caught my eye when he was only three days old and his ears popped straight upright - hence his nickname Batman!  I'm never very good at parting with kittens who name themselves... I adored his brother Opie too, but fortunately for my sanity Opie went to live with his uncle Kush (and my friend Dawn) in Cumbria, so I still get to see him at shows. 

Once Batman had an archangel pedigree name it didn't surprise any of my friends that he didn't quite manage to leave home.  He has the squidginess of his dad and spends a lot of his time dangling upside down in my arms with a goofy grin on his face.  When he isn't larking around so much he shows 'that' look around his eyes that I just cannot resist.  Batman doesn't really believe in taking life that seriously though - watching him playing with younger kittens I think he would like to stay a kitten for ever, darling boy.
