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.

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

Oscar’s Charity Badges

Oscar Badges available on Etsy Our kitty Oscar has become rather popular on Facebook recently, with his comical grumpy looks and handsome face. 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 …

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 …

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!            

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 …

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 …

Happy Caturday and also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad!! Oscar loves to sunbathe. Unfortunately our garden doesn’t get much sun at this time of year, however the top of the fences do! I nailed a bt of scrap wood to the fence post and now Oscar loves it up there. I might find a nicer …

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 …

It’s lovely and sunny here. Oscar loves the sunshine 🙂 He doesn’t like his sunbathing to be interrupted though, as you can see! I love Oscar 😀

Caturday

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!

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…

Caturday

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.

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 …

We were sitting in the living room the other day and had the feeling we were being watched. Oscar was on the roof looking through the window! He was zooming off by the time I got my camera out. It’s been so hot here and Pixie loves it. She’s spending all her time outside. Arty …

Caturday!

I was on Facebook earlier and on the right hand side there was a status I had written a year ago today. It said ‘There’s a black floofy cat in the garden!’ That cat was Oscar but at the time we had only seen him out and about and he was very scared. When we …

So, here’s what the cats have been up to this week. It’s an exciting life! Arty got a new box this week so he’s a happy boy. Pixie hasn’t been so happy. When it’s cold and raining she doesn’t like to go outside and she sulks. The worse the weather, the smaller she manages to …
