Helen Daykin is a firm friend of this blog and has shared lots of pictures with me. This latest is the earliest I have yet seen of her with her first Siamese cat. I am guessing this is Midge, who we met in May here. They do look like good friends. My own cats steered clear of my two children when they were this size, in order to avoid drool, sticky hands and having their tails pulled.
Helen plans to send me a similar picture of her young daughter Pearl with her cat Bridget. Bridget has a fearsome reputation, so I hope there will be no unfortunate incidents!
