Ever since the day we went to the RSPCA, to see if there were any cats needing a home, as we had a vacancy, and Tom climbed up my sleeve to my shoulder and meowed in my ear saying "Take me home with you" he has been my special baby!! As a kitten I think he thought I was his mother as he used to lie curled up on my lap and suck his own tummy whilst kneading his paws as cats do. He did grow out of sucking himself rather as a child grows out of sucking its thumb but he still comes to me for a cuddle and he just has to be loved.
He is a master of relaxation and can make himself comfortable anywhere. Look how his little toes curl with happiness!
Such a trusting little animal - tummy all ready for a rub! Try it with his sister and you'd get your hand bitten but Thomas rarely bites or scratches and then only if I overdo the play and he forgets I am not actually another cat!!
I went up to London as planned yesterday and met my friends at the Garden Museum in Lambeth just across the river from where all the student protests were taking place. I don't have any photos but am hoping one of the friends will e-mail me some of hers and I can show you later.a
Have a good weekend and many thanks to all those of you who have commented on my previous posts.
