I'm being given an 8 week old kitten

It's something of the "Moggie" variety.

It's Mum/Owner refuses any payment, so my question is:

What do you think I should give her, goodies or cash and in what quantity, as I have no experience in this kind of thing?

My grandson, who lives in London, recently paid £80 for a "moggie" kitten ...... and there were plenty that were much more expensive. Don't know where you live but that may give you a basis to work from, whilst remembering that kittens may well be cheaper in your area.

I must say that I was horrified at the cost but thinking about it that probably says- more about my age than anything else.

The choice of cash or goodies depends on your knowledge the lady who gave it to you.

give her a thankyou, she'll be happy enough the cat is going to a good home.

btw what kind of "goodies" lol..... :P

How about a nice bunch of flowers to say thank you

round here you couldn't give them away. Dogs are big business though.

Got to pay people to take them away here.

You should go round her house every day, use her kitchen as a lavatory, tear her wallpaper with your fniger nails and pull the curtains down by trying to climb them.

Ample revenge :D

Seriously, if she won't accept payment she will refuse cash. Much more difficult to refuse a gift that somebody has taken the time to choose and buy.

As to the value of that gift, make it too expensive and it could devalue her kindness towards you by making it a transaction. You know her so it's got to be your judgement call.

I'd give her an 8 week old kitten.

It's a tom, black and the runt of the litter.

I think a couple of bottles of wine might be appropriate.

Does that make sense?

Yes wine would be a nice idea, providing she drinks wine that is, or a nice box of choccies.

Send it back to her stuffed and mounted.
