well, more specifially ava when she was a kitten ;)

when asked to recall your favourite pet stories, do you have one that is always guaranteed to entertain? one that’s stood the test of time, or that makes you laugh or think nostagically every time?

to be honest, i couldn’t say i have one specific memory or story about ava that stands tall above the rest. i guess, apart from one. cliche as it is, the first few days that we got her, as well as deciding her name. it was between rita, brenda (after my boyfriends nan), and ava. we couldn’t decide so put the names in a hat ava it was meant to be!

that tiny, cheeky, fluffy, ferocious bundle of energy. with huge absolutely crazy eyes that made us fall instantly in love with her.

i’ve written here before about how important i feel it is to take time out from your day – in whataver way you want, to relax, have fun, or generally take a little time to do some forward planning to save from future stress. some days we can all be good at it, and other times you feel like you’re non stop busy from the moment you wake. it’s good to keep yourself occupied and to feel like you have some purpose in life, but what is the point if you don’t take a little time to enjoy yourself, or to just relax for a bit?

well, a thing that is very very special in my life, and is actually a core part of keeping me calm and helping me to take a few minutes here and there to just ‘be’ is my lovely, cheeky little cat, ava. since being a kitten she has been an energetic and mischievous little thing, and now that she’s 6, she’s still the same …but definitely a bit more chill.
