Smiley Cat

The other day me and Diesel had some bonding time. This doesnt happen very often as Angel is a jelous little girl and Diesel tends to please him self.

I was just sat on the couch watching a bit of Come Dine With Me getting some ideas for dinner and Diesel was chatting away to me, as he does. Next thing he jumps up, plonks himself down into between my thighs where its nice and warm, putting his front paws over me like lord font and just chilling.

He kept giving me the occassional nudge as if to say ‘hey im here stroke me’ … He is so cute. I caught this picture of him in his full smiley mode. He was very happy and purring away. Very lovely little boy he is.

Cats love their morning routine

Other than bed time, what is your cat’s favourite time of the day??

Obviously all cats love feeding time, play time & bedtime because they are lazy but does your cat show some behaviours at a certain time of the day which makes you think they love this time of the day?

Angel and Diesel’s favourite time of the day is on a morning. As soon as the alarm clock goes off at 6am they are up, awake and talking away to us telling us they want their breakfast.

We have quite a routine on a morning and it shows with out cats. They must be in the same routine because even on a weekend when we have no work, they still wake up at 6am, still want their breakfast at 6:05am and none stop talk until we get them it! It’s funny!

After they have had their breakfast they like to sit on the window sill with the windows open on vent, get some fresh air and watch and listen to the birds. It’s comical really because all you see is Diesel the black cat sat on one side of the window wagging his tail, and Angel the white cat sat on the opposite side of Diesel also wagging her tail.

The closer the birds come to the window the faster their tails move… it’s very cute and very funny! They watch with utter amazement every morning!

Kitty goes in heat

Have you got any stories or questions about your kitty in heat?

I have never had a female cat that has gone in heat before and I was really surprised when I learned Angel my white female Ragdoll was in heat at 8 months of age a couple of weeks a go.

I heard a lot of different rumours about cats being in heat and about them being nasty, aggressive etc. So this was something I wasn’t really looking forward too. But when it came to it Angel was quite the opposite!

Angel did nothing but role around, rubbing her head on anything and everything. She was especially fond of bare feet (more than usual). She would talk constantly and be so loving and affectionate, which was in her nature anyway but more than usual! I was so pleased. This went on for around 3-4 days. Then two weeks later, she is on heat again! I was getting a little worried at this point due to reading on the net almost everywhere that it was normal for a cycle to be every 21days and last a week or so.

After consulting my local vet I found that this is actually quite normal, and that it is different cat to cat. My vet said that with us having a male, neutered or not, that will still bring a heat on more often for my female than a female on her own. Sure enough another 3-4 days passed and she calmed herself down again!

It’s very funny & cute to see. See some pictures below of Angel being her loving affectionate self, and a second blog detailing some facts and what to expect when you female fluffy friend goes in heat.

   

My cat Diesel loves his lingerie

Ever since we have had Diesel he has been a funny little character doing things a cat shouldn’t really be able to do, but very fascinating.

Eleanor told me one day that when Diesel was still a kitten she and Diesel were practicing how to open drawers in the bedroom. I never really thought anything of it until I seen it in action. Here is a video of  Diesels ‘paw’ work in action, he loves to open drawers when we have gone to work, pull the lingerie or clothes out, and have a  little snooze in there, leaving the mess of clothes/lingerie for us to tidy when we return (he hasn’t figured that one out yet.) He is a funny little boy.

Another thing that Eleanor showed him was when it is breakfast or dinner time for Diesel; he sits and watches her open & close the cupboards, taking it all in. So she showed him how to pull the cupboard open. So he can now put his paw through the handle, pull it, and whalla he can get into the food cupboard. We often return home from work and Diesel is no where to be seen. We search all the usual hidey-bows that he uses, and various cosy sleeping places, and still no where to be seen. As Diesel is an indoor cat this can sometimes be worrying wondering if he has escaped under our feet on our way out to work. Then the last place we look is the bottom kitchen cupboard, funnily enough where his food & treats are kept. And there he is, curled up, quite happy and content on the kitchen towels!
