May I introduce to you:
my most beloved and precious Lady of the House. Unofficial Head of State in my dwelling, cheerer-up in bad times and general scurrying-around sunshine.
We found her 11 years ago under a bush in Italy, abandoned by her mother, skinny, sick and hungry and we slowly pampered her back into shape. “Gattina” is just the italian word for “Kitten”, but meanwhile she’s a really heavy Momma, well nourished, self-confident, very cuddly and with a character of her own. We love her.
