Introducing Molly

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram then you’ll know that last week we welcomed a new little kitty to our family. We thought we’d wait till we had a name before formally introducing her to the world on my blog. We were checking out the Cats Needing Homes page on our local …

Farewell Oscar

I write this with tears streaming down my face. Our beloved Oscar lost his battle with kidney disease on Sunday. We our heartbroken. He was, and always will be, a huge part of our family and we will remember him forever.

Black Cat Day!

It amazes me that cats are being judged by their colour but sadly it’s true. On my visits to the local rescue centre the black cats have always been there the longest. Our Oscar used to be black until he spent too much time in the sun. Look at that little face! Please don’t judge …

Caturday

It’s a beautiful autumn day here with lots of lovely sunshine. Oscar loves the window sill in our bedroom when it’s sunny like this. It’s also a great place to photograph him as the light is great. Happy Caturday

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 …

He’s not really grumpy but the camera always makes him look that way. You can see more of him on his Facebook Page. He wants to help cats who really are grumpy …

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 …

Caturday

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!

Caturday

Our neighbours have recently got a kitten. She is so adorable. I’m not sure what they call her but we call her Minnie because she’s a mini version of Artemis! She is very bold and often comes into our garden. She loves to play and is getting more confident with our cats. She growled at …

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 …

Caturday

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.

National Microchipping Month

June is National Microchipping Month in the UK and it aims to raise awareness about the importance of chipping. All of our cats are chipped and I highly recommend it to all cat (and dog) owners. Lots of vet practices put on special offers at this time of year so check yours out to see …

Happy Caturday everyone!! It’s lovely and sunny outside so what is Arty doing today? Sleeping of course!! He has a hammock on the end of the bed (the type you put on a radiator) but he likes to sleep under it, especially if we make him a tent out of towels. As you can see, …

Happy Birthday to Doodlecats!!!

I can’t believe it is only a year since I started drawing my little cats. It has been an amazing year. I had no idea how well it would go and how Doodlecats would take off. I always wanted a job that involved cats and being creative and it’s still hard to believe that I’m …

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!            

Happy Adoptaversary Oscar!!

We have been trying to decide on a day each year to celebrate Oscar coming into our lives because we don’t know when his birthday is. He came into our lives gradually. For months we just saw him around the neighbourhood, sleeping in gardens and running away if we approached him. It was over a …

Caturday

Because Oscar was a stray we don’t know much about how he lived before he was on the streets. One of the conclusions we have come to though is that he wasn’t played with in his old life. For ages he was just scared of toys and for a long time he would only bat …
