March 10 – Hector and Mimi

Our Favourite Housesit

Hi from Gillian and Michael

We love Hector and Mimi, our Burmese cat’s housesitting charges. They are real characters. Hector is a dark chocolate brown cat with wonderful bright green eyes. He is bigger than Mimi who is slightly lighter brown and also has beautiful green eyes. They are both brilliant hunters and love to bring their catches in to show us. They have brought in lots of mice, some rats, a mole, a pigeon and yesterday even a bat. Actually, we aren’t sure if they brought the bat in or not but they were very excited about it anyway. When a little creature is brought in we quickly jump into action and remove it from the house but the cats get quite grumpy after we do that.

When we walk around the garden both the cats love to come with us. They rush around following us, climbing trees and laying down on the ground for another tickle. They sleep on our bed most nights and snuggle up all night making little snuffling noises.

They bring us so much joy and I really understand the effect living with cats can bring.
