Diamond Girl well named

I've always known my girl was a magical little gem who brings light and comfort when it is needed but I cannot believe I've lived with this beloved little cat for eleven lovely years and never noticed this hidden gem.

I was sitting one night fretting about some of the things that have been happening and sad, difficult decisions to be made. Magic was cuddled up against my leg and, when I looked down, I suddenly noticed this.....
She has a DIAMOND shape in her ear.....!
When we got her she had been named by the SSPCA cat rescue staff as she had been handed in at Christmas. Her name came from the Marks and Spencer's first 'Magic and Sparkle' advertising campaign. The name seemed to suit her and she answered to it so we kept it, and she has indeed been a magical, sparkly girl ever since.
How odd on that night when I was worried that she revealed her inner gem. Even more oddly, this year Marks and Sparks are planning to re-run the 'Magic and Sparkle' strapline....Spooky eh...?
