Vet time

– Why are you grumpy Pix? – You know why. – Pixie, I had to take you to the vets, it’s for your own good. – I don’t feel good. I had to go in a carrier, I saw a dog and I got prodded by a vet. – It’s all for the best, I …

Queen of the Boxes

– Hey Pix, can I have a box please? – No. – Please, I need one to put an order in. – No, stop taking the box! – But I really need it! – NO! They’re my boxes – I’m only taking one, you have lots left – I said NO! Give it back, give …

Catification in progress

We’ve lived here for a few months now and we’re finally getting round to sorting out shelves for the cats. Stage one is putting the wine boxes on the wall in the living room. These are wooden wine boxes that I got from the market I used to have a stall at. Lots of wine …

Cat Burglar

Anyone who followed my Facebook page will know what a rollercoaster yesterday was. Pixie went missing. We always keep our cats indoors at night so when tea time came and went and there was still no sign of Pixie I started worry. We walked miles up and down the area behind our house (a block …

Happy Birthday Pixie

Happy Birthday to my beautiful little Pixie cat. I can’t believe she’s 6 already. She is the cat who changed my life and made it so very much better. I can’t imagine where I would be without her. Tonight she will have a lovely tuna dinner. I love you Pixie. Here’s Pixie over the years …

Caturday

Hello, it’s Daz here again doing another guest post for Caturday. I thought I’d share some slightly unusual photos of our cats using one of my favourite photographic techniques – “multiple exposures”. I mostly take photos using film cameras, some of which have special buttons that allow you to take more than one photo on …

This is one of Pixie’s favourite toys, it is called Da Fur Thing (from the people who make Da Bird), you can get it here on Amazon. Ours is several years old, hence the lack of feathers, but the fun hasn’t worn off because Pixie still loves to play with it. Check out that tongue!

Crafty Cat Toys

The more money you spend on a cat toy, the less they are likely to play with it – or at least that’s how it seems most of time! Maybe that’s why our cats love this so much, because it cost nothing to make! Daz has been hoarding the tubes from the centre of toilet …

Oscar pays no attention to Da Bird or other cat toys. Scraps of fabric are another matter entirely! He loves them. Pixie being adorable as usual. Arty, stressed again.

Caturday!

I post a *lot* of photos of cats on Instagram. I can’t help it, they keep doing cute stuff that I have to share! If you don’t use Instagram I’ve now added a tab to my Facebook Page so you can see my Instagram photos there instead – yey!

Making the bed is so much fun when there are kitties around!! Pixie loves bed making the most and it takes twice as long with her help but we have so much fun! She loves getting under the sheets and pouncing on the covers as they move. Oscar, who has only just started coming onto …

Cat Dancer

I read about this toy in a cat book and had to get one to try it out. The concept is very simple, just a long wire with some bits of rolled up card type stuff at the end. The wire is really bouncy so it moves in a crazy way when you’re playing with …

It’s been rainy and horrible outside this week. When the cats can’t go out they get bored so we give them lots of catnip to play in. Pixie had a great time!

Caturday

Hi, it’s Daz here today. Beth is busy preparing for tomorrow’s market and asked me to share a few cat photos… You’ll be familiar with the first three. And this lovely little cat is Poppy- my mother’s cat…

New Toys!

I love getting the cats new toys. All cats are different so I think it takes a while to work out what your cats will want and even then you can buy them something thinking they’ll love it and they totally ignore it. I got these new toys from www.purrsinourhearts.co.uk and they’re great because they …

It’s been raining a lot this week. Normally Pixie is outside for most of the day but even she doesn’t like getting wet all the time so she’s done a lot of sleeping. Oscar has been helping out Daz with his work. And Arty, well no change there.

Happy Adoptaversary Pixie!!

5 years ago today this tiny, grubby little kitten came into my life and changed it more than I could have ever dreamed of. She was in quite a state after being kept in a rabbit hutch with her brothers and sisters and another litter of kittens, away from her mum. Many of them didn’t …

Caturday

It’s all about boxes this week. Arty is always in a box or on a towel. Sometimes we put a towel in a box for him which is his dream come true. Pixie likes boxes but most of them are too big for her as she is tiny. This is the first ever photo of …

Caturday!

This week I’m posting pictures that Daz took on one of his film cameras, I love how they came out!! The colours in the background are from a massive piece of patchwork I got at a carboot sale for £3. I just wish Oscar was in the pics too but he doesn’t really venture into …
