I could not let today go by without giving my perfect little fur baby a special shout out on the blog. One year ago today my sister drove Little Miss and I to pick up the newest addition to our family, Elsa Arya. Not one day has gone by where I have regretted my decision to adopt her. Although I knew from long before she was ready to go to a new home that she would be mine, and that I would have loved to adopt a cat from a shelter, I feel like she was meant to come into my life. She loves me completely and I don’t need to compete for her attention, even with LM. She sleeps on my bed, or at least in my room. She sits on my lap and keeps me company. I have cried into her fur and she’s stayed by my side on some of my darkest nights. She’s there when I come back off holiday, or even just in at night. Her favourite time of day is when LM has gone to bed and it’s just the two of us.
Although the old feelings of loneliness are creeping up on me now, which was why I got Elsa to delay the whole dating thing, but I still would never swap her for anything. No matter when I go in the world, she’ll be coming soon. She is 100% like a second child and I genuinely never thought it was possible to love a pet so much.
