  1. Bought MM a lovely bed, it was ready for her when she arrived, she never used it, instead she kept her toys in it. It was only slept in once, the evening we took in a stray before taking her to a rescue centre. She slept in it!

  2. I think my older stray kitten is an Italian.. He loves to roll his Rrrrs in his meows. He don’t meow like my other kitten, he rrrroar or rrrreow..

  3. I love kittens, even if they do keep me awake lol. They crack me up! We have 2 litter boxes and they use one for ummm let’s call it number 1 and then they jump in the other one for number 2! They both do this. I think it’s funny. Salem also has a few times a day that she just goes totally nuts and is flying through the house like a crazy cat. Nothing is safe at those times. I gave up on having curtains for now.

  4. Love!
