Oh, To Be A National Trust Cat!

Last Sunday we spent the afternoon visiting the Wimpole Estate in Cambridgeshire. It's owned by the National Trust and has the usual beautiful period house, immaculate gardens and in addition to all that, an amazing farm.

Now you already know how much I love visiting National Trust properties and my complete love of cats and on the Wimpole Estate I was in my element as I found something which combined these two passions.


Meet Gina, the 14 year old tabby cat.

She spends her days sleeping on the gift shop shelves and occasionally, on warm days, ventures outside to the plant shop to snooze in sunny puddles.


She occasionally wakes up to have a look at the visitors admiring her or to give herself a little wash.

And then it's back to sleep, hoping that the visitors will leave her to sleep in peace.


Oh, to be a National Trust cat! 
That would really be a lovely life. x

  2. Oh she is absolutely adorable! I agree - it would be a pretty perfect life wouldn't it? Although, I expect blogging would be a bit trickier :) Gina looks identical to our cat that we had growing up - I think tabby cats are just lovely.
