Lisa from Swe Daisy Spaces suggested that I name the kitty Bella and that she may be from Italy – the home of Ballet. I had no idea that Ballet originated from Italy, aren’t you bloggers clever people!
I had a peek on wiki for more info and it turns out that Ballet has it’s origins in the Italian Renaissance Court where it was a dance interpretation of fencing. It was then developed in the French court before flourishing in Denmark and Russia. “Ballerina” was originally a title reserved for an exceptional ballet soloist in the Russian Imperial Ballet.
Bella is now with her new best friend, beautiful 6 month old Anna.
