My little baby Buffy is 6 months old, can you believe it?
It feels like just yesterday I could fit her in the palm of my hand
but since then she has become a wonderfully cuddly, curious,
intelligent and strong young cat - with a perfect camouflage coat.
From the very beginning she was great with other cats and humans,
going only in the litter box and eating cat food, so both myself
and the family that found her think she must have had a human home.
(They asked around and advertised but no-one came forward.)
She is very vocal; she purrs, trills, meows and screams -
mostly when she isn't in need of anything, she's just communicating.
The last few days though, she has been making alot of extra noises
and I think it's because she's coming up on her first period in heat.
(I will take her to get spayed very soon!)
It took a while for my boy to warm up to her. I confess, I thought
it would be a bit faster since he loved my old girl cat so much.
But now he and baby Buffy play together every day and get along fine,
and once she gets a bit older she won't go crazy every time she spots him...
She goes outside for about 15 min every day, but since the weather
has been crap basically since she was born her roaming urges are still mild.
She's curious about the outdoors but it can't beat the dry, warm and safe
life indoors - but we'll see what happens when spring rolls around...
Right now she is stretched out across my lap for an afternoon nap.
Happy 6 months, my little darling!
