My Perfect Companion

I sought you out and you were brought to me
Looking lost and a little shy
Your preferences were a mystery
I had to start from scratch.

How to understand your little purrs
How to listen to your heartfelt sighs
How to brush your long fur
What toy you loved the most
(Mr MacDoonagoogle)!

Nearly four months you’ve been with me
A sumptuous eternity
Today you turn eight years old

Today I dedicate this post

To you my perfect companion

Happy birthday my glorious Charlie!

And a happy Fourth of July to my American bloggie friends!

Have a cracking Sunday everyone!

Happy birthday, Charlie!

It takes time to learn about a new pet. Last time, I kept treating my new cat like the previous one, but she's completely different.

I'm glad you found another cat that makes you happy.
