Look at his beautiful set of blue eyes.....sooooo seductive, eh?
Last weekend, we visited his family home in Hornsby, a suburb north-east of Sydney. It's about one-hour drive from my home. Aunty Z and Uncle M, Casper's parents, invited us to an ANZAC Day barbeque. It's an Australian tradition to have a barbie in the backyard whenever a patriotic holiday like Australia Day or ANZAC Day is celebrated. Well, we even hold a barbie on Eid. It's the way it is here.
Aunty Z and Uncle M prepared a lot of food and many guests also come. Including my other set of future in-laws - Aunty If and Uncle Is. Phew! Lucky Pingu didn't tag along.
My future parents-in-law slaving away at the BBQ set.
Apparently, the barbie and the other guests were just a ruse. It was actually a good opportunity for us kids to get to know each other better. This is what we called a "supervised" date. Brad thinks otherwise, though. He said it's a date that's PG-rated.
Must say that Casper is kind of the quiet sort.
Hmmm....and very pally pally with Dad...he seemed to enjoy sitting on Dad's lap.
My Mama said another plus point for Casper, compared to either Pingu or Rajoo, is that I can nag him till kingdom come but he won't bat an eyelid. Why? That's because he's hearing impaired. I thought it was noble of Aunty Z and Uncle M to adopt a "special" cat that the RSCPA will surely put to sleep as no one else would want him.
Mama said she may give special discount to Casper on the "dowry" part. Hmmmm.... can he afford me? I'm high maintenance. purrr....meow!
