(and sometimes the beast!)




Any regular readers will know we love our feline friends.  This one is no exception.  Mitzi is a Norwegian Forest Cat I met while staying with friends.  She's living with them for 3 months while her mother is away and has settled in well with their male Birman.  She's a very sweet natured, friendly cat and very beautiful as you can see.  She has the long feathered tail of her breed (not pictured, sorry) but I must say she doesn't look much like any of the examples of the breed I found on line.  Unlike my cats, which will shred your fingers given half a chance, she plays gently with sheathed claws.  I was tempted to hide her in my suitcase.
