A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.
Ernest Hemingway (author)
Today, quite by chance, I came across my cat Princess’s Pet Passport and discovered it was her birthday. She was born on 7th July 1993. The name Princess suited her well. She expected, and got, lots of attention. The above quote is highly apt.Princess was a big grey tabby born in Athens. I don’t know why so many cats in Athens are huge! When I first saw strays roaming the backstreets I was amazed at their size.
Unfortunately, she died many years ago. She never did make the journey from Greece to the UK which is why those of you familiar with my blog ‘Quarantining in Corfu’ have never heard of her.
But, a pet lover like you will understand, she is not forgotten. And the same applies to her mother Valentina who was such a character!
The above photo was taken when Charlie was recovering from a blockage caused, as I discovered, from eating a new plant on my balcony, which had fibrous brown leaves. Princess was keeping him company as he was naturally very sorry for himself – having just had a lifesaving operation.
Anyway, memories, memories flooding back.
Sending greetings to all cat lovers. Enjoy the company of your puss today.
