Anyone who knows me knows I love CATS! I don’t think a birthday goes by when I don’t receive a cat card or gift. I even get cat adorned cards from Miss Marnie now! So, it goes without saying she loves cats too…
Not that she gets much choice as we have two feline friends: Pepper and Pinto.
When we brought Miss Marnie home from the hospital I was more worried about how my original babies were going to react and after an initial sniffing around they kinda of ignored her for months.
Now, she’s a toddler I would say they try really hard to ignore her. But, with her running around after them and them finding her toys a little intriguing they’ve all learnt to tolerant each other.
When you have kids and pets you really have to be relaxed – on more than one occasion I have caught Miss Marnie eating some cat biscuits (hey, if they are good enough for my furry babes!) and dipping her fingers in their water bowl…
So, I thought I would indulge my love of cats AND books and bring you my – I mean – Miss Marnie’s favourite bedtime cat stories.
