“When we adopted Wanda, she joined our other cat named Toby and a dog named Luna,” explains Sarah. “And the reason we chose her was because she was so cute. We liked her long fur and she seemed really sweet.

“Because of Toby and Luna, we introduced all three of them slowly, and so her adjustment to our home was gradual – but very much worth it. Not only do the animals get along fantastically together, Wanda love, love, loves them, sometimes sleeps with Luna the dog, and adores cuddling with us, which Toby doesn’t. To put it mildly, we all love her so much.

“Despite having a slight independent streak, Wanda’s very talkative, and enjoys playing with toys. Her favorite is this little penguin (we call it her baby), that she carries around the house with her just like a dog.

“She spends most nights sleeping with Toby. Why? She’s hard to sleep with because she lies on our heads!”
