Yes, this post is long overdue, I know! But I wanted to introduce you all to our new family member!
Why we got a new kitten
As you might know if you follow my blog or any of my social media, I’ve had an extremely rough year, with five of my pets passing away in the past few months.
I have always been a huge animal lover and I could not handle the house being so empty. My happiness is very much dependant on being surrounded by animals. We went from having six pets to just one in under three months. My husband and I had been thinking about getting another cat for a while, so then we decided that it was time. We started looking around on the Facebook pages of various rescues. And then we found Mavis!
So why Mavis?
Mavis is a rescue kitten. We got her from Catz R Us in March. I would highly recommend them if you are in Pretoria and looking to adopt a cat or kitten!
We specifically wanted to get a black kitten (gender did not matter), as I know that they are the least likely to find homes. I’ve always had a soft spot for the “rejects” that no one wants. I fell in love as soon as I saw her photo, and when I saw her name I just knew she was the one.
Mavis is the name the rescue gave to her and we loved it! She is named after Mavis in the movie Hotel Transylvania, which is one of my favourite animation movies.
What’s she like?
Mavis is extremely cuddly and needy! She will follow you wherever you go because she doesn’t want to be alone. She loves to cuddle, and now that winter is here she even sleeps under the blankets!
She always sits in my lap when I make jewellery – she loves being my assistant!
She likes to give people kisses, and almost never stops purring!
She’s also a little monkey and loves to climb trees!
She is incredibly full of energy and always wants to play. She drives my other cat, Rits, absolutely insane because of it. She loves to play with all her toys, but also enjoys playing with boxes. Currently she has 4 boxes lying around the house that she plays with. We can’t get rid of them because then she cries.
I honestly cannot begin to describe the joy she has brought to our lives.
She has her own Instagram! Follow her if your want to see more of her: @mavis_the_kitty_cat
Adopt, don’t shop 🖤
