||Seven years, five months old|
is Sammie and she is my baby. She adopted us after her owner died when
she was eighteen months old. We ran a B&B in St Ives, Cornwall and she saw the
vacancies sign on the door and thought she'd book in. She was very popular
with the guests and often appeared in their holiday photos. I also worked in
a craft market locally and Sammie often walked to work with me and sat in the
shop window enticing the customers in.
We now live in Hertfordshire and she loves her new home. There are lots of
birds to chat to from the window ledges and pretty flowers to sniff in the garden.
She has many favorite places around the house to sleep but especially likes
her furry igloo when my lap isn't available! She is an excellent hunter and
particularly likes it when there is a full moon. She can be a very curious
cat which sometimes gets her in to trouble. You always know when she's been
up to mischief as she has an awful lot to say for herself when she finally reappears!
She cannot wait for us to come home from work each day and gets very cross if
we go on holiday, refusing to speak to us for at least ten minutes on our
return! She does like it though when nanny comes to look after her as she
brings her knitting and it's great fun to pounce on the wool as it comes out of the bag!!
Sammie is a very special cat. We are so lucky she chose us and we love her very much.
