Today is my rescue cat Poppys birthday. She is 10 years old, and has been with me for 11 months now. we are in a routine now and it works well. She hops on my bed at about 7am and gives me a gentle hint by pushing me with her head. When I take the hint and get up she leads me into the kitchen where she has her breakfast before I get my coffee!! then out into the garden. She usually spends most of the day pottering about wherever I am indoors or out in the garden and if any windows are open she has to get out of them rather than out of the door. She is very quick and has bought me the odd present of a dead bird. Evenings she will hop onto my lap and push either my book or my knitting until I put it down and we concentrate on having a cuddle and stroking. We are both happy with our lives together and she loves to be fussed by family and friends.
Happy Birthday Poppy, lots of Dreamies and chicken for you today. xx Val
