A Message from Mavis

 


Hello, my name is Mavis.
 
I know Mum has been posting about me for days now, ever since by magic I found myself back with her and Dad, and home again.  She's told me all about the lovely people that have been leaving messages all about me and today, I'm here to say THANK YOU.
 
 
Every night I curl up in my bed, it's the same bed I used to have.   I have always loved my bed, sometimes it's this one and sometimes it's the one right next to the big warm thing that Mum calls her Aga.  Now and again I sleep in the other bed that it is in the cooler room,  the room might be cooler but the lovely warm furry cat that sleeps in there cuddles up to me, and together we are warm.  I like curling up in a little ball, and I can now my tummy doesn't hurt any more.
 

 
I have something very special that Mum and Dad have done for me.  It keeps me safe and reminds me that I shouldn't run too far away in case I get lost again.  Even when this is on my collar I can go and climb on the back of the sofa to watch Dad in the field, I can get to my water dish for a nice cool drink, I can go outside and sit on the grass or lie in the shade by the plants, and watch Mum and the chickens.  If I get tired I can get to any of the beds that I fancy a snooze in.
 
Sometimes I get a bit tangled, and end up sitting next to the table because I have gone round and round in circles, but Mum is never far away and she comes and does the magic thing that makes the special lead long again and I can go and join my sisters on the doggy bed in the sunshine.
 
I am never left alone on this for more than a few minutes and because of it I can choose where I want to go, it makes me feel safe and stops Mum looking so worried.  I don't like it when Mum is worried. 
 
 
So I keep coming up to her ..... and telling her I love her with my eyes.
 
I'm using my eyes here to say to everyone of you that has thought about me, and cared about me enough to send nice comments to Mum, that I love you too.
 
I have so much love to give .... you can all have a little piece.
 
Mavis xx
 
 
 
 
" Do you think she's finished yet " .....
 

 
" I don't know but I'm getting ready to go out!! "
 
 
" We're all ready Mum .... where are you? "

    Sweet girl!

  4. Lovely to see her sweet little face looking so trusting, do my eyes deceive me or is Suki looking a bit more svelte, maybe she has been studying camera angles and knows which is her best side. It is wonderful to see them all home together again.

  13. What a clever idea, that will keep her safe and sound. Her pictures made me think about how you did find her again, as if by magic. After all of her terrible experiences you walked back through the door to take her home where she is so loved. It must be like a dream to her at the moment.

  16. Huzzah! Mavis is home!! I missed your posts saying she had been found so it was a real delight to come across this. I am sure you are happy to have her back with you so lots of licks-and-purrs from the Feline Four here at the Dormousehold. Lovely that she is beginning to settle and feel safe again. We love Mavis!

  18. Sue, I don't know you or Mavis but from what I read here, but you made me cry again. How someone
    could even hurt this sweet baby makes me want to use a bat on them. Hope Mavis feels more secure,
    and you never have that worried look again. Cheryl

    1. We were supposed to be getting another Border Collie when Lovely Hubby gives up his day job, but now we will have to see. Four is a handful on my own, five might be cope-able with two of us!!

  28. Sue, what is the red 'dog line' called and where can I buy one? The chain which came with our soil spear is very rough and sharp, in fact it tore right through a pair of my trousers as I approached our dogs and got it wrapped round me. I would like to replace the chain with the sort of thing you have for Mavis. Thanks. She looks much better x

    1. They are from Pets at Home. We got one with the spike for the garden and the other we bought separately, it is 3 metres longer and allows her more access. It is really good like a tough reinforced clothes line, nice and smooth and untangles very easily. Well worth the money.

    2. Thanks Sue - I will definitely buy a couple of these (2 dogs) before we go camping next time. I may even buy the sort of spike you have - our soil spear isn't strong enough. However, I have no intention of ever going to another campsite with hens and ducks running up to the tent. Just too much for our dogs!
