About Safi in her owner’s own words:
“My cat is called Safi and she is a brown Burmese. She oodles character and I must admit is a little madam. She is typical Burmese in that she is very affectionate, playful, a little clumsy and VERY vocal.
She will go out in all weathers, often coming in soaking wet wanting to be dried off, then she is back out again.
Fortunately she is not a prolific hunter, as I have a thing about mice and birds flying around indoors (not mice flying round but you get my gist. I have been known to call the neighbour to rescue me on several occasions from wood mice (twice) and a robin in the bath. )
Like Simon’s Cat food is top of her agenda at all times of the day. She has moments of madness where her tail puffs up and she charges around, if indoors from one piece of furniture to another.
In fact it reminds me of a game we used to play in the gym at school called pirates where you had to make your way round the apparatus in the room without touching the floor. I had a call from a neighbour after I had just moved to my current house which is in the middle of the country, telling me that Safi was on the barn roof next to their house. Apparently she had charged down their garden (with puffed up tail) chasing a pigeon, flew up a tree, and landed on the barn roof. When I went to check she cried and cried at me. She was such a townie she didn’t know how to jump back onto one of the trees to get down. In the end my neighbour climbed up a ladder and rescued her despite the fact that he hates ladders and heights. He is now her hero and always gets a special welcome.”
