I thought it was about time I got in touch to give you an update on the life and times of Pandora. Our feisty little madam!
She came to us after we saw her on the Barnsley website and fell in love with her. She had been named Jewel, but we felt that Pandora fitted her character better.
Pandora tears around the house like a whirling dervish at times and is always looking for something to play with; toes under the duvet are a good source of entertainment for her. She is proving very difficult to photograph as she never sits still for long! She makes us laugh constantly with her antics. We call her Panda, or Pan for short, both of which are actually short for pandemonium, which is what always seems to follow her around.
Julie warned us that she was very vocal and oh yes, she is certainly that. Always miaowing loudly and letting us know she is about, and none more so than first thing in a morning when she decides it is breakfast time. She jumps on the bed and parades up and down on top of us, waiting for one of us to react, if that fails we get a nose pressed onto our faces, when we ignore these attempts, she then throws herself against one of us and snuggles in purring and wriggling until we submit to her demands. Who could ignore that!?
She loves to play and no piece of string, catnip mouse, cat toy or scratching post is safe - she beats them all into submission! She is also a very independent little girl and loves having a cat flap. Although in the first couple of days she had the use of the catflap, she managed to get herself locked in to our neighbours garage overnight. She doesn't care what the weather is doing either, if she wants to go out in the pouring rain she will, although she isn't too popular when she leaps on the bed demanding breakfast at 5.30am, dripping wet through!
At present she is mesmerised by the frogs and frogspawn in our pond, I'm sure all the frogs have flat heads from her smacking them! (.....and yes, she did fall in once, and yes, she can swim and climb out again very quickly, and yes, we did laugh at her, and yes, she ignored us for the rest of the day!).
We feel very honoured to have her and we love her to bits. Thank you for finding her and taking her in.
