On the first of November I took from the RSPCA a most adorable and beautiful cat, whom I have named Mia.
People said my life would be changed but I didn't understand to what extent. After all, it's only a cat!
But, first, was my allergy - cats have been known to make me itch like crazy!
So I went down to the centre and explained my predicament and they let me stay with the cats to see if I started itching. I spent half an hour with Mia but it felt like 5 and I didn't start itching - instead I fell in love. In fact, it felt like mutual love at first sight!
She is the most affectionate and adorable cat I've ever had the pleasure to know. And, unlike a dog, she's not needy and doesn't slobber everywhere!
But the reason why she is my salvation is because I feel I've finally, without really noticing it, closed the chapter called My Life With John and started on a new chapter called My Life With Mia. Instead of looking backwards, I'm looking forwards.
And the best thing about it is that John, being a cat lover himself, would approve thoroughly. :)
