One year on...

A year ago today was the day our home was first filled with fur! I had waited (perhaps not so) patiently for a week from first finding her until we could pick her up but this day, 12 months ago, was the day we finally brought Mabel home. 

To mark this special occasion Mabel has her perfect day all planned out.

She thought she'd start the day with some morning cuddles with extremely loud purrs and extra headbutts before breakfast.
This will be followed by an action packed day of hiding in boxes, sitting on clean washing, lazing on the bed, jumping in the sock drawer and watching the world go by from the window.
A little bit later she'll play out in the garden with her friends 'the chickens' from next door, climb a tree, have a special dinner, a nice long brush and a sleep in a shopping bag.


Just over a year ago The Boyfriend was still trying to convince me that getting a cat would be a good idea and I was still unsure to say the least. Well, that year has flown by and now I can not recall what life was ever like without her. I have totally fallen in love with her.
She's a furry fledged member of our little family and has fit in to our lives so perfectly.
I feel so lucky to have her and she makes me laugh every single day. By my calculations that's a whole years worth of extra laughs and smiles that I would never have had without her.
Life is more fun now she's around.

Thank you gorgeous, fluffy, little Mabel.
(The best idea The Boyfriend ever had!)

Just wanted to... a quick little post to say... it's a whole year today since we first met fluffy little Mabel.

a helping paw

We recently decorated the bedroom and, as with any other household job, little fluffy Mabel lent a helping hand paw.

Her list of jobs was as follows:
  • oversee wall painting (between cat naps)
  • make sure everything stored away in new boxes under bed is in good order
  • check carpet is strong enough by giving it a firm scratch
  • check each one of the new drawers is sturdy
  • test new wardrobe is nice and comfy on the inside for an afternoon snooze
  • push every single curtain ring off the table on to floor one by one, making sure to hide one of them under a rug
  • watch innocently while humans search for 10 minutes for lost curtain ring
  • check curtains once they are up by having a good tug on them
  • give the window blind a few swipes
  • run off at double quick speed when window blind then knocks a (luckily closed) tin of paint off the windowsill 

She was a very busy girl! 

Then, just when she thought her list of jobs for the day was finished, she had the difficult task of rolling around on the new duvet cover and pillows to make sure they were up to standard. I'm presuming they all were up to her very high standards because once she had got suitably snuggled and cosy she didn't move from that spot until breakfast time. Well, it's hard work making sure your humans are doing everything just right.
