My Inspiration


Let me introduce you to my beloved Billy. I really believe he was God sent to me. He is a great example of how to live in the moment, bears no grudges, only eats when’s he’s hungry, exercises thankfully, enjoys life and is very affectionate, protective and sensitive.

A male in a million. (If/when I get a new Agony Aunt slot, I think he should be the Agony Uncle!) Billy is an absolute joy and I love him so much. He is clever and funny, loving and cuddly and a delight to have around. He brings such love and life with him and everyone who meets him falls for him!
