A year ago today we adopted our sweet Trudy-cat. It didn't take us long to fall in love with her and it didn't take her long to fall in love with us. She is not as in love with the other cats (nor them with her) but she is one of the family and is happy to be here.

Resting on her favourite blanket
Trudy has decided I'm her BFF (best friend forever) and she follows me around the house when the mood strikes her. She isn't a lap cat, but she likes to be near me. She'll lie at my feet when I'm at the computer, or she'll sit at the other end of the couch if I'm on it.

She is a very social cat (with people). Periodically I'll feel a cat paw poking at me if it's time for pets or playing. She is the first cat I've known that really loves belly rubs. She rolls onto her back and demands them. She is so silly and fun.

Give me all the belly rubs!
We have come up with various nick names for her over the past year. There is Trudy-Bear, Trudy-Doody, Tru-dor, Trudinator, Big Gray, Big Grump, Tank, Pretty Eyes, and a million more that we make up while talking to her. We love her!

  1. Oh my gosh, great to see these photos. Tank, I love that name.

    1. Thanks! Sometimes she is General Tank. I love making up weird nick names for cats. :)

    2. We have dogs but they are Wiggy and Bug. Names I love. Though sometimes people name their pets real names that just don't fit. Or to me, they don't. Like Bob or Frank. I dunno, where's the fun in that?

    1. Thanks so much. We are happy she is here. :)
