Paws for Celebration




Happy Birthday to Poppy – twenty years old today. A much-travelled cat, she has settled into Dunfanaghy for her holidays. Her Facebook page gives the full story. There will be readings from her pedigree throughout the day. The Brown Burmese is described as actually being sable with golden eyes.

She has had a varied life. Her years in Portadown were shared with Rollo, our Red Burmese. He wasn’t streetwise so they were both indoor cats for that period. The countryside of Perthshire has suited her. She was almost entirely silent for the first part of her life. Deafness now makes here somewhat noisy. Her greatest achievement – with the assistance of her personal physician Harvey from Tay Valley Vets – was to give up being diabetic after some four years and over 4000 insulin injections.

She expects to have a quiet day today – receiving some friends and admirers. Perhaps a trip to the beach later on …


  1. Happy Birthday Poppy; I wish you many more years of happiness!

  2. She is looking well for a puss of that age . She has even got the sun for her birthday (where is this Irish “soft rain”). Give her a big stroke from me
