Athena: Reminds me of you and me, Mum.
Marie: I know, sweetie. That's why it melts my heart so...
Athena: That's so sweet. Purrs xx. How about another video today?
Marie: Why not?
Athena: How about this trailer of the new series of the Supervet, which is back on our screens here in England on Wednesday. I know how much you love that show, Mum. I'm not so keen of course (and many kitties will understand this - just the mere mention of the word vet is super scary for us).
Marie: I know, sweetie. And I'm the most squeamish human ever to exist, as you know, but I can't help but love this programme. Noel Fitzpatrick is amazing and his passion for animals and what he does is extremely heartwarming to watch. He truly has an understanding for the human-animal bond.
Athena: I have to agree, Mum. With some vets I've encountered you just don't get that, but this man is different. He is so passionate about what he does (and he is very nice, I give him that) I suppose you could say he is an angel - an animal angel just like you and many of our pet blogger friends and lots of other animal lovers around the world.
Marie: I think he's remarkable and his staff are too - from what I've seen in the documentary. And I love watching how humans and animals love and appreciate him too. There is just so much love and compassion going round. It's incredible. Hey, Athena, I've just had a thought. Wouldn't it be great if we could interview Noel Fitzpatrick for this blog? I suppose it won't happen though, just as it can't happen with Ian Somerhalder and Jackson Galaxy. Oh, and James Bowen (and Bob of course!) and many other famous cat-loving humans. Our blog just isn't famous enough.
Athena: You mean I'm not famous enough? Come on, Mum. Don't let it get you down. I know it's Monday morning but look on the bright side. Our blog is getting so many new visits now! It'll happen. How could it not? I'm a beautiful goddess cat! I'll make it happen. And you will have your dream of a cat sanctuary soon, don't you worry about that. Now here's the Supervet trailer for the new series to cheer you up.
Marie: It doesn't really cheer me up, sweetie. I just hate seeing animals suffer. It tears me up inside.
Athena: But you are looking forward to watching, aren't you? Something to fill the void left on Wednesday night after your fave show Our Zoo ended last week?
Marie: Yes, you are right, Athena. Of course I am looking forward to it. It's only four episodes, though. It'll fly by.
Athena: Oh, Mum, you always find the downside in everything!
Marie: You are so right. But I can't help it, sweetheart.
Athena: Come on, Mum. Let me sit on your lap and give you extra purrs today. I can see that you need it. And then we can have a nice afternoon nap together to make up for my waking you up at 5am.
