  • I had to consider bookcases vs. bookshelves and even buy a new crockery cabinet as the one I have has magnetic doors and my cat would open it and toss all the china out. I almost wanted to send links of glass cabinets to Simon for his ships 😂

  • In one case, my cat chose me. She was very small and had been taken to a shelter with her sister. She followed me around, snuggling up to me and obviously liked me. I asked if I could adopt her and they said she had a sister, so I met her too. She approved of me too and I took the two home. That was 1994. Both passed of natural causes in 2010 and I miss those beautiful girls! I have Loki now and he reminds me of the sister; a very large black cat who is super sweet (except he's a rough and tumble boy who's a little more aggressive.) In a cute way. 💕

  • My first cat was a stray that had taken to the warehouse where I worked. Most of us didn’t mind but the boss when he saw her told us someone had to take her or he would drown her in a bucket so she came home with me in a cardboard box. Driving home she escaped a sat on the steering wheel hissing and trying to scratch me as I was driving on the busy dual carriageway 😳. She went on to live with us for many years we named her Polly as she used to like to sit on my shoulder like a parrot 😊

  • I love how Simon's cat immediately demands for food. I had one who did this all the time, but she was on a diet for being overweight. She did shed her weight and became a lot healthier once she was introduced to being outside. She thrived being an outside cat, and I think she needed it. She belonged to my aunt, and was kind of dumped onto me - not that I'm complaining. Tanzanite was a good cat.

  • OMG this is so much how I got my cat Marzia. The only difference is that I came out with scratch marks cause there wasn’t a plastic glass between us and I could pick her up. It took her a long while to get use to me, now she tries to follow me around including when I’m in the bathroom. Everyone else she’s still skittish unless you’ve got food then she’s your best friend.

They claw the furniture and I have fabric to recover but not now.....this home is theirs and they feel safe here. I say to everyone out there adopt a 🐈. You’ll be happy you did!!!!!😻❤️😘
