I am writing to you from my bedroom. My cat Minnie is curled up on my bed purring very loudly. Sometimes she yawns and stretches her front paws out in front of her until her legs shake. She has pink paws and a big fluffy white tummy. The rest of her body is black and white just like a cow. In fact, when my dad is joking around he calls her "Daisy".

We found Minnie in a rubbish bin a few Christmases ago. She is wonderful, and I cannot believe any one would throw her away. The people at the Cat Protection shelter told us that sometimes people get pets and then change their minds, and that is why it is always good to really think about if you can look after an animal for many years before you get one.
