Throwback Thursday – MV

Meet MV, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

MV joined dad Carl and his family when she was just 4 weeks old. A local farmer had an influx of kittens and asked if Carl wanted to take one in.

MV is now 17 years old!

‘We took 2 cats from a litter of 4. Her sister (who is no longer with us) was called Tribble which was a really cute fluffy animal from 60’s star trek !!! (sad I know). When we came to name the other one we couldn’t think of a name – we were sat round one night looking at her as a kitten and I said the M (which lots of cats have over the eyes) is really pronounced and black and then it looks like there is a clear letter V going down each side and under her nose……and MV was coined.  She very often gets referred to as “ MV Puss” in the house!!

‘Since we moved to a new house last summer, she does like to have a lie down and sleep on the shower floor in the main bedrooms en-suite and has also developed the loudest meow ever!!’, says Carl.

‘Her sister, required many operations some years ago after suffering some really bad burns.  The bills totalled over £2500.  All worth it but…. I wish I had insurance !!’ adds Carl.

We are always on the lookout for #FriendsOfBuddies to feature in our posts. If you have a dog or cat, and would like to share their throwback photos, please email Becks @ Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
