Minnie the Cat




Minnie is a mini-sized cat who lives in London, England.  She has a blue coat with subtle stripes, a very striking combination.  She recently moved and is still exploring her back garden.  Her first big goal was to climb Mt. Lattice, as the wood pigeons and a cheeky squirrel sit up there and taunt her.  First, she got in some climbing practice on a tree, then climbed all the way to the summit of Mt. Lattice.  She was doing fine walking along the summit, until she came to an area which was overgrown with vines.  This made for tricky footing and she slipped and fell, but she landed safely on her feet. Minnie's favorite toy is a small ball which is stuffed with catnip and has a few feathers attached.  She carries it around with her all over the house.  She enjoys naps in the sun and catching flies.  She makes her Feeders a bit anxious with her game of Bee Tag, but so far she hasn't been stung.  She has taught herself to play football (soccer) with a small ball, using her female Feeder's shoes as goals and she is pretty good at it.  Minnie has only been blogging since May, but she is a lot of fun to read.  At present her Feeders are off on vacation, so drop by and keep her company.

                                 Minnie was determined to climb Mt. Lattice,
                                 But she decided she needed some practice.
                                        So she climbed a tree
                                        With both skill and glee.
                                 Then she handily conquered Mt. Lattice.

I am feeling much better.  It was just a little digestive upset and it's all over now.  Thank you all for your concern.
