Last Friday evening we “kind of” adopted Mimi. Mimi is a cat who belongs to one of the ladies who also rents where we rent. She spends a lot of time on set in Johannesburg, she’s a costume designer. There was another lady where we stay who was looking after her but she moved out which is why we now have Mimi.
David and I are quite excited about letting Mimi stay, even though she is very needy and has to sit on you all the time. I’m also secretly happy that she prefers David over me. There’s only so much of a needy cat I can handle. I also think she prefers David because he lets her climb all over him and he calls her all the time. I just push her away when I’ve had enough… She is wonderful though and I like having her around because she is very friendly and loving. I think “borrowing” Mimi for a little while will be good practice for us in the pet department and will help us decide if we really do want to get a pet.
