Hello folks & moggies,
My name is George, and my human has finally decided to take the plunge and put my picture up here on Moggyblog. Well, here it is and I hope you like it? As you can see they just caught me having a lovely rest on the living room carpet. Normally I'd be out the back keeping busy.
I have been at my new place just over a year now and am doing very well after my previous owner's girlfriend threw me out which was quite stressful as you can imagine. I have a lovely garden to roam around in and am very happy here - sometimes I bring my human a few little gifts from the garden which she does not like, no idea why - I spend ages choosing them for her.
Anyway, Have a lovely weekend,
