My new friend Cat

Hello all!

I am not known as an animal lover. Don't dislike them, but I don't get all soppy when I see a cat or a dog. If I was to choose my favourite pet, it would be fish. No fuss, they demand very little from you and they are pretty. I used to keep fish, big tank and all that, but at some point they started committing suicide. I'd come back home in the evening, and another fish would be lying on the floor. So, I patiently waited for them to extinct themselves and got rid off the whole thing.

Now, pet free, I only admire animals from afar. However, on one of my walks through the Village recently, I met a Cat that I rather liked. I recorded our very civil encounter here:

You rarely see cats in the Village, so when I spotted this one, I thought I'd say hello;

She was not having any of it; she was busy daydreaming:

And just as I was about to give up, she turned around and said hello:

Have you made any new friends lately? Hope your friendship lasts longer than mine and Cat's. I haven't seen her since October last year!

Have a happy week.

I agree with you. I love all animals but am not a big pet person. Maybe one day, but not for a while anyway. Hope you had a fabulous Christmas and that you had a great start to the Spring Term. Fifi

:) That's such an adorable post! Dogs are my favourite animals and my heart belongs to my pupster who is a cocker spaniel. And yes, I am one of those crazy people who can fall on her knees in front of a dog to say hello, get a kiss, play etc etc etc. I actually think once you have a dog, especially when you get him or her as a puppy, you grow to love them.

Oh love this cat! I was hoping you were going to say that you adopted it. I am so devoted to mine :) but I know what you mean about the freedom of being pet-free...

I have had pets all my life and I do miss not having any now. We have though decided that we cannot afford them now. Food, vets bills kennels if you go away......
Your friend for a short time is very beautiful. Diane
