She is deeply concerned with the ways of the mice—
Their behaviour's not good and their manners not nice;
So when she has got them lined up on the matting,
She teaches them music, crocheting and tatting.
I just love the thought of a cat who can crochet!
This week we have adopted a cat from the RSPCA, and named her Jenny after this fictional cat. She is approximately three years old, and hasn't had the best time in life so far. Her tail is very short, so she must have had part of it amputated at some point. She was brought to the animal shelter last October (almost a year ago) after she was found by the side of the road, having been hit by a car. She was badly concussed, but hadn't broken any bones. As she recovered, it became clear that she was deaf. There have been two previous attempts at rehoming her, but neither of them worked out. As we live in a very quiet area with little traffic, we hope she will do better with us.
