Well the first tribble, one of the girls, was re-homed yesterday. An English family drove up from the Mayenne to see the orange five and the daughter chose one of the girls. Kinky One, or maybe Kinky Two (no one's quite sure, least of all the tribbles) left nestling in the arms of a young girl and, knowing the limpet-like powers of both kinkies, is probably still attached now.
A bit of a wrench to see her go but we tell ourselves it's for the best. And if we don't, Gypsy does.
Had another enquiry this morning - this time for a boy. So things look bright in tribble futures.
