Penelope

This is reporter Michael Sibert's cat Penelope - who is half Russian Blue. When she was little, (this picture was taken in 2013), she used to spend most of her time on my shoulder.

Now she's much bigger, she's much more grumpy, but still loves a cuddle. She's also very forgiving with my 2 young children!
