It was back at the beginning of July that we first caught sight of a certain 6 month old kitten who had been rescued by the RSPCA. She had been found several weeks before wandering the mean streets of St. Annes, and it took her all of about 5 seconds to capture our hearts from her little pod at the rescue centre with that lampshade collar around her neck and her pink paws pressed up against the window as we passed by. Naturally, she's very much the undisputed queen of the household, and has been almost from the moment she arrived.....
I'm hopelessly biased, of course, but I think she's a very pretty cat. It seems I'm not alone, and I'm pleased to say that our Minou is fast becoming something of a poster girl for the RSPCA: if you visit RSPCA-pix.com and click on "cats", you may just see a photo of a certain tabby kitten. Should you so wish, you can also purchase prints, mousemats, mugs, t-shirts and fridge magnets all displaying her pretty face.
I'm as proud as you like, but do me a favour and don't mention it to the cat though, eh? She struts around the place as it is.......
Credit also due here to a wonderful, talented photographer.
Now: would it be too much to get a t-shirt emblazoned with my cat's face?
Yeah, you're probably right.
