Britt Marie is a consistent companion, always finding a spot nearby to keep you company regardless of what you are doing or where you are sitting. She loves to lie under the couch or in a cupboard or on the carpet on the stairs and watch you work, cook, or relax on the couch. Her eyes may start to droop but if you move, a gentle mew and soft paw-steps will follow behind you.
Something about Britt Marie makes me think she is looking after us and not the other way around... until her playful mood strikes and a younger kitten personality appears.
Shoe laces, pipe cleaners, ping pong balls, ear plugs and running shoes are a big hit as playmates and amusement. A proud strut takes over when she has won her favourite toy from you in a chasing game that she is all too quick and clever at. Lately, her tail has been a source of great entertainment as she sits on the stairs and tries to catch it. This game is often interspersed with Britt calmly recomposing herself into the beautiful lady again, until, out of the corner of her eye, she catches her tail flickering.
Any hidden nook or covered areas is an immediate challenge Britt must investigate- under couches, in drawers, under beds and shelves. Anywhere she has not yet explored needs to be evaluated for potential future sleep comfort and optimal viewing of her care givers.
In the evening she sits and stares out of the window and much later will come to snuggle next to you in bed with the softest fur and a gentle purr. She won't stay very long - she is just checking up on you.
Coming home at any time or day or night, you will find Britt Marie running to greet you. In the morning, she will wake when you wake and accompany you through your morning routine, stretching and yawning whilst making sure you are on track.
Britt Marie will complete any household with companionship, a playful spark and furry love therapy. She really needs another cat for company.
