42 Facts about Mabel

If you didn’t know already know, I have a cat called Mabel. She’s black, 7 years old and as you can see from the photo below; beautiful. She’s quite shy with people she doesn’t know (in fact she hides under our bed covers when strangers knock on the door or come round) but once you get to know her she’s lovely and she has such a great personality (when she’s not shitting behind a hoover -see fact #20). We’re totally used to her little personality but I know when I tell my friends about things she’s done that they find it hilarious so I thought it was about time I did a blog post about her. She’s definitely a unique individual and this will come apparent as you read on…

  19. It ended with a standoff and her hiding behind the TV stand, growling at Will
  20. She once couldn’t be bothered to go upstairs and use her litter tray because she was too excited by what was going on downstairs (she loves to be the centre of attention around people she knows and is comfortable with) and so did a shit behind Henry the Hoover.

  38. We call her litter tray the poop shack
  39. She loves to sit at the top of the stairs whilst I stand at the bottom and throw her squishy cat toy up and she catches it and then knocks it back down for me to throw again
  40. No, she’s not a dog but sometimes I think she thinks she is one
  41. She catches flies, spiders, moths and is my hero because I hate any kind of bug or insect!
  42. She’s the best cat in the world and should have had her own blog post sooner!
