I called her Maud.
Short for Matilda.
Having talked to the other villagers and knowing now that she’s been a stray for quite a while, we are not so worried about “stealing” someone else’s cat.
Two weeks later, after making herself well and truly AT HOME, she’s decided that the top of my head, on my pillow, squished between me and the headboard, is her new fave sleeping place. I haven’t the heart to move her. It’s the only time I hear her purr :o)
Though – I’m a bit worried about how much she keeps grooming my hair and face. Am I that untidy?
