Since getting Freya, Anna’s developed an amazing talent for spotting Leopard print items! (Of course we’re obsessed!)
So far, in a few short weeks from the local charity shops, we’ve got a leopard print cushion, hot water bottle cover, and get this – a fetching leopard print satin bed sheet!!! Can you imagine anyone buying that new? (outside the 70s of course) It’s great for 50p, but I’m not sure I’d ever put it on my bed!

Yes, I beamed, she’s a Bengal…
What a lovely start to the day.
It’s been a few days since her last “accident”, and I can categorically say that cotronella DOES NOT HELP AT ALL.

And she wee’d on the cloth!!

We’re still in the planning stages of letting her outside (read: we’re building up the courage to do it) and she’s actually remarkably good at wearing her harness.
We walked out at the front of the house yesterday, and she really seemed keen to go back in – although when I carried her out in my arms, she was fine and calm, but then, that doesn’t really count as excercise, does it?
We’re trying to take her outside ideally once ..read more
