Itty Bitty Kitty

 One of our friends asked us how long me and mum have been together.  Well mum was lucky as she got me as a little 8 week old baby back in 2006.  This is my first night at home with her on the 30th of December 2006.  Mum had grown up as a girl always having pussy cats round the home.  The first cat she got to have that was all of her own as a grown up was the lovely Puss.  Puss just wandered into her house in about 2000 and stayed.  But she got old and sick and mum was terribly sad after she passed.

She had always dreamed of a little grey cat and it was her first and only experience of going to a breeder.  The breeder was reputable, she was a vet nurse and took good care of her cats, and mum was so happy to be able to choose me.  All the other cats in mums life have been shelter cats and she has always loved them, but she knew what her heart needed and it was me!

 I settled in straight away and we have had a good ten years together.  Mum and I have lived in 3 houses together and although there is always a bit of drama and trauma moving, the important thing is that we are able to be together.
 We hope you like all of these photos - all from our first couple of months together when I was an itty bitty kitty.
Now I am a big 10 years old and mum and I are still happy together.

  12. I loved the photographs, Poppy, especially the first and last. You look a little apprehensive in the first, but also ready to trust. You and your mum were made for each other. Almost your whole life together...
