This week has been tough, but I have learnt a lot about the realities of animal welfare and how to help creatures in need. But this week also made me miss my own cat, so I have spent most of this weekend curled up on a sofa at my parents house having lots of snuggles with my own little Nightfury Kitty. (I call her my Nightfury because when curled up she looks just like Toothless!).
This is Jinx. This was a photo of her when we first brought her home, nearly 10 years ago. She was the runt of the litter and to this day is still pretty small for a cat. But this was her, next to her water bowl and food bowl. And she could easily have curled up in both of them quite happily.
To me, there is no better sound in the world than that of a purring cat. Especially when it comes from a sleeping cat that has curled up on your lap and is purring away like a little car engine. The only thing that makes it even better is when it’s raining outside, you have a big fluffy blanket across your lap and a comfort film playing in the background.
