So the lovely Beth has jetted off to Mauritius and has left her blog in some our capable hands! I’m Vicky from Lots of Love, Me. and Beth was the FIRST ever blogger I met, at an Adourable press launch. I’m so proud to have watched her blog grow from strength to strength, but the one thing that has remained largely prevalent on her blog is her love for her big, fluffy cat, Gizmo. I too, have a loveable, purring creature that takes over my house in the form of my cat Daisy – so it’s always nice to see a fellow cat-loving blogger.
So my blog post for her today is, why cats are the best pets.

3. Cats purrrrrrrrr
Oh how I love the sound of a cat’s purrr! It let’s us mere mortals know that our feline friends are happy, or hungry, or both. It’s such a comforting buzz that I frequently enjoying falling asleep to!
4. Cats are far funnier
Let’s face it, the Internet is filled with comical cat videos, and some of the most entertaining animal celebrities are cats (Google: Grumpy Cat, Princess Monster Truck, Snoopy the Cat, Lil Bub, Colonel Meow, Nala or Hamilton the Hipster Cat – to name a few!) It’s if cat’s know they’re comical geniuses, that they plan their comic timing, their slip off the counter, their selfie taking or smacking head on mirror the moments. I guess it’s not a dog’s fault – they are just bigger creatures, cats are just versatile you can put any costume on them! Continue reading
