When I mentioned canine friends yesterday I felt certain some would feel I overlooked their best friend(s) Felis Catus better known as the CAT!
Not so! Along the years our daughter adopted every wandering feline (some which cost us a notable sum in Veterinarian fees!) as well as other assorted homeless 'pets'.
Our house soon evoked a remarkable resemblance to Noah's Ark. That and the constant rains where we lived must be why ex-RAF hubby often mumbled about finding those 'blasted' blue prints...(Must be that British humour!)
We have however only recently adopted our very own Felis Domestica. Like most of our pets she is a 'rescue', (this time from a nearby shelter!), and she came with her name: Maira.
Maira gets along well with our Corgi which is a blessing of course!
Their playful antics often includes a tag game which Maira wins by a long shot: MacIntosh has not learned yet that he looses if she 'tags' him and thus keeps running around until eventually the cat's long nails strikes at a tender spot...After which all is forgiven and they rest side by side...
As for favourite feline friends around the globe they include Slow lane life's Scooter, Hamish, Millie, Lottie and Catkin amongst others!
