Mairead was 14 when she came to me in October 2011. She has always been a confident cat and knew what she wanted. Interacting with me or any of the younger cats just didn’t seem to be anything she enjoyed. So I gave her time to come out of her shell nevertheless I mostly found her hiding away. She withdrew further after her kitty friend Wesley passed away early last year. It then came as a big surprise when she decided a few months ago that cuddles aren’t that bad after all. With a new lease of life Mairead now claims her spot on the sofa, demanding cuddles, nose rubs and being brushed and on an adventurous day she might even get on my lap. I hope she has many happy years with me enjoying her newly found pleasures in life.
