Why my human loves me

Purr… My name is Sugar Minx. I’ll try and keep this short and sweet.  I just wanted to let you know that domestic animals play a vital role in society and we should be taken more seriously. I’ve been with my current humans for about six months and to be honest with you my job is exhausting but so rewarding.  I make sure I share myself around the family as I’m sure you know what a calming effect I may have on them. They constantly need my attention so I endure about 50 or so cuddles and pats daily.  The male elder of our family needs extra special attention (although he is still somewhat resistant to this).  I see him off to work every morning and greet him when he arrives home.  At night when he is asleep with exhaustion, I sometimes groom him, which he has now turned into a game of let’s hide under the sheets!

My humans in return do look after me quite well too.  When I first arrived in their home they took me to the vet to have me desexed and vaccinated.  Rumour has it that there are thousands of unwanted domestic animals euthanized every year due to irresponsible humans. My humans also ensure that I am kept inside at night so I don’t  hurt wild animals.  I know, to look at me you would think butter wouldn’t melt in my mouth but my hunting instincts are still strong.

So if you are thinking about getting a cat, remember it is a commitment for about 15 years.  I’ll keep you posted on my humans progress.
