The secret life of Dora and Mimi with Petplan!

Since Petplan are an official partner of the ace new movie The Secret Life of Pets, they thought it would be good fun if we were able to get an insight in to the secret life of our pets, so they provided us with a wireless motion activated camera with the ability to record on to SD card. We have our own cat Johnny but he’s not really up for behaving to camera, and we reckon he has a secret second family somewhere that feeds him.

Better, our friends asked us to look after their two kittens while they were on holiday for a week. We made the kittens a cosy little home in the room we rather grandly call the library- a sectioned off room at the back of our garage conversion/extension that has more books than you could possible ever need in it.

I’d fed the two cats and even played with one of them a few times but Dora was very elusive. She just wouldn’t come out to eat or even see what all the fuss was about when I was in the room.

Fortunately the night vision function on the camera worked brilliantly and I was able to capture Dora walking around as bold as brass in the middle of the night:

It was a relief to see Dora walking about and having a nose about because up to this point I was half convinced that Dora was actually an elaborate joke and didn’t actually exist!

The other kitten, Mimi, was much more playful though, and when she wasn’t sleeping, she was out and about having a right old prowl. I caught her on the camera coming out from behind the armchair, I reckon she must have been checking up on Dora!

While all this was happening, I’m fairly sure that we heard someone a few doors down call “Johnny”, which may explain while our actual cat is often nowhere to be seen!
