A Meg moment

A Meg moment
Originally uploaded by ** Robyn **.
When we came home from our last trip to the UK in January we realised that it would almost certainly be the last time that we could travel. With this in mind and remembering the lovely moments that we had with the kitten, The Demon, at Headland Warren Farm, we both independently decided it was time to get another cat.

Off to the RSPCA with the idea that the cat would choose us, rather than the other way around. That is exactly what happened when this little minx emerged from a hiddy hole and stood at the wire of the enclosure, demanding to be taken home.

In the 6 months that Meg has been a member of our family, she has become very important in our lives. She keeps The Poet company during the day when Number Two Son and I are out at work. In the afternoon and night, she keeps me company, mooching around my feet while I watch TV and work on the computer and sleeping at the foot of my bed during the night. I'm not sure that I could do without her anymore.

When the boys were little I would bring them something, usually a little book, home for them when I went shopping. Now I do that with Meg. I thought she would love the lamb's wool offcut in this picture. I put it in front of the fire where she loves to lie, now that it is cooler. Meg sniffed it, picked it up with her teeth and fought with it then tossed it aside. Now she has decided it is nice to lie next to it.

The little bear was meant to replace one of my own that Meg keeps stealing to play with. My bear was a gift from Number Two Son's girlfriend; a souvenier from her trip to Scotland. She still steals my bear and rarely plays with her own.
