Turn up the volume so you can hear Ella's voice!
We had promised Ella a cat for her birthday. But I had said to her that I wasn't sure of the timing of it. I had mentioned to my friends that I was looking to adopt a kitten, and one of them put me in touch with another woman who had a "very sweet little cat" hanging around their apartment block that needed a home. Street cats are quite common here (although not as common as they used to be) but they are not usually friendly. This little cat (we're not really sure if it's a boy or girl) is so affectionate.
