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!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
