I can't really be sure as we adopted them as adults, but I don't think the boys had toys before we moved in. Charlie certainly looks at me like I've got a screw loose when I attempt to play with a dangle toy with him! This was Parker during our first Christmas together, he wasn't... Continue Reading →
When we moved to our previous house the girls hadn't been outside for a while and as it had been a busy road, they hadn't seen any other cats for quite some time. The house had a huge conservatory which they loved sitting in, both before they were allowed out and after (when they weren't... Continue Reading →
We moved to an area with a very busy road for a while and I didn't want the cats going out at that time, they were quite happy with the situation but were still curious as to what was going on outside (especially when partridge would come up onto the terrace)! We had a couple... Continue Reading →
The boys often come home caked in mud, it is the countryside so I never thought much of it. Then one day we discovered Parker disappearing down a hole in a nearby field! I've no idea what lives down there but I hope they have good hearing!

Cat photography and its perils, one minute they are looking cute and fluffy (that bit never changes at least!) and by the time the camera springs to life they've either completely left the shot, or they are doing something entirely different! So here is my best example of this, Charlie at his silly best!
For the first of my 'guest cat' slots, this is our current visitor. We call him Mew Cat because you can hear his very high pitched mewing from miles away, he comes up the hill from the village to see us (day and night, we opened the door at 6am once and he was sat... Continue Reading →
