Those of you who read my blog will know that I have a very naughty kitten called Maisy who came to live with us in the summer. You may not know that we have another resident who joined us almost a year ago. After the sad and rather sudden loss of our cat Millie who came to us from Wood Green Animal Shelter, we paid another visit to that brilliant cat home to find another treasure. And we found Misty. She is a rare treasure, but has had such a rough time in the past that she was too shy to settle in a previous home. We brought her to our house as we are suckers for a sob story! And here is a rare photo of her!
I say rare because even after nearly a year the best we can hope for is that she occasionally ventures out of her basket. Since we got the kitten she has been better, especially because if she doesn't come out for her tea Maisy eats it in a flash!
However I can count how many times in the last year she has left the kitchen on one hand. She once came into the living room and sat on a cushion for about 3 minutes - it was really exciting and has not yet (unfortunately) been repeated. Maybe she will never get any better than this, and we will be living with an invisible cat for years to come, but as long as she seems happy we will keep on feeding and attempting to stroke her! After all Maisy is really enough trouble for two cats :)
