    My last post was a sad one, about a month ago with the death of my lovely Burmese Bruno.

    I know it’s a bit soon, but I want to introduce our new little girl. I’d never usually get another pet this quickly, but life has been heartbreaking lately. Besides Bruno, we lost my father’s sister in October, and my mum’s Alzheimer’s deteriorated to the point we could no longer cope and she’s gone into a care home. Then only days after that my Dad died unexpectedly. Six days before Christmas.

    I felt we really needed something to bring a little light back into our lives, I saw this little girl advertised by a reputable breeder. She had already been promised once, but then something happened and they had to give back word. She was already 4 months old; on impulse I rang.

    She’s a lilac Burmese and is very loving, playful and totally bonkers when the mood comes in her. We still need a name that does her justice though. It’s so long since I posted photos on here, I’ve forgotten how to do it, but I’ll have a play and put some on.

    Kittens are such fun but completely bonkers at the same time.

    Thank you for your lovely messages. She's a little ray of sunshine, peeking through the dark clouds. It's been a long time since we had a kitten, and even longer since we had a little girl; our last three cats have all been boys. Here she is .... excuse the slightly mucky eyes.
