The delightful Lady Beatrice

I may as well start by introducing my assistant. The delightful Lady Beatrice. Lady Beatrice came to us as a 7 week old kitten from Battersea home for cats. Seven weeks is too young for a kitten to be adopted, and she was very scared and undersocialised. The people at Battersea do a terrific job as she was already potty trained and all she really needed was building up her confidence.
I read to her exclusive extracts from my favourite books, till she got used to my voice. Now she responds to her name, and she has a fairly broad vocabulary. (She knows ‘disappointed’ means she is doing something naughty, like climbing on kitchen counters, or doing her nails on my Chanel bag.

The delightful Lady Beatrice. – a true London cat. If you want to adopt a cat or a dog – look into one of the animal charities for a rescue case. http://www.battersea.org.uk/cats/new_cats_gallery/

when looking for a pet, Cats are generally easier to look after than dogs, but they still need love and attention, as well as regular vet visits, so do not underestimate the commitment. A kitten is adorable, but bear in mind that its basically a baby and you will need to devote the time to form his/hers personality. An adult cat, may be an easier option and the charities tend to have a few in desperate need of a warm welcome. If you live in a rented flat, check with your landlord that is ok to get a pet. They’d have to be heartless to say no…if you simply don’t have the time for the commitment, do the London thing and set up a regular donation to them. http://www.battersea.org.uk/get_involved/ways_to_give/sponsor_a_kitty_kabin/index.html Make it a generous one if you can -I always think its so cool to be generous, but a fiver a month is good too.
