Summer is in full swing and it’s time to meet another gorgeous Pet of the Month! Let me introduce you to Ronnie the tabby cat, a handsome chap who loves a good catnap!

Good morning Ronnie.

Ah, yes, good morning to you.

How are you this morning?

Tired. But it’s almost naptime.

I won’t keep you for long, naps are very important. 

Indeed. Let’s get to it.

So, firstly, is it okay if I call you Ronnie? I have heard you have many nicknames.

Ronnie is fine. My humans call me all sorts of things: Bubbs, Bubba, Ron-Bon, Ronald, Ron…sometimes Nee-Nee. Honestly, the list goes on.

Sounds like they adore you! Do you get lots of treats from them?

I do. My favourites are those pouches of Dreamies, absolutely scrumptious!

Mmm, sounds wonderful. How would you describe your perfect day, Ronnie?

Simple. Eat, sleep – repeat.

Easy to please! Do you ever have any playtime?

I do, when the mood strikes. I often partake in a good lace chase, but on my terms of course.

Of course. Do you have any favourite toys?

Yes, one of Dad’s old laces. You can’t beat the classics!

You really can’t. Is your Dad your best friend?

Cats don’t have friends, just e-quaintances.

I see! Tell me, Ronnie, do you ever get in trouble for getting up to mischief?

There is the occasional disagreement over birdie watching, apparently playing with local wildlife is frowned upon.

Mmm, birds are friends Ronnie, not toys. 

If you say so. *yawn*

Right, I just have one last question and then you can nap away! 

Thank goodness for that.

Are you a good boy?

Of course, or so my Dad always says.
