Posh puss cats

I love cats! I really love cats! There is hardly a time in my life when I have not had a cat in my home since I was about 4 years old (with the exception of my 3 years in Uni, and even then mum had cats I fussed when I went home and the local cats found me for a free fed and warm lap).

These are my three fav posh breeds of cats:

Choc point siemeses (prob spelt wrong). I have ALWAYS loved these cats! When I was tiny girl, pre-school age, a lady down the road looked after me while mum was at work and she had some of these. I can't really remember that far back, but they seems to have left a lasting impression.

Russian Blues have always come a close second too. I only found out about these when I was at Uni (I think it's because I had a copy of Cats and Dogs on PC which I used to allivate my lack of real pets).

And isn't this a cute photo!!!! I like the British Blues too, but they are chuncky cats and I prefer the sleeker breeds as a general rule.

In the last few days I have "discovered" a new breed - well, they're new to me anyway. Marble Bengals.... Just look at that amazing orange fur!!!

I love tigers you see, infact my first cat was a strippy tabby type and he was called Tiger (aren't they all), and that black and orange strippy fur is SOOOOOO lovely!

I have only ever had one posh cat, and he was a "hand-me-down" cat; a smokey blue persian whose official name was "Succky", but who we named "Greebo" on account of him being smelly, grumpy, and having a bad eye when we first got him!

All that said though, there will always be the biggest part of my cat loving heart set aside for the avarage domestic moggy, like those I have had and loved for many years. Along with Tiger and the regal Greebo, there have also been Calvin (the killing machine), Amber (who turned out to be a boy and very camp), Brunny (a time share cat from the other side of the village), and finally our beloved Muppet who is right now under my desk keeping my feet warm!


Muppet, you might not be a posh cat, but you are my Princess!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
