Its getting closer to that time of the yeat again ‘Christmas’ yippee… I love Christmas, its a really exciting time in our house hold. I wanted to blog today about Diesel’s first Christmas as we came across a blog on Its a Pussy Cats life from when we first set up the blog, but i don’t think any one has seen it so here we go:
Well time goes so quickly when your having fun with your new kitten. It was getting closer and closer to Christmas 2009, and me and Eleanor were really excited for our first Christmas together with Diesel. Diesel was around 6 months of age at this point, and was getting really big.
Me and Eleanor had planned to get Diesel some new toys, treats, a new scratch post play gym and some daft clothes for his first Christmas. Call us mad, but we couldn’t leave our little boy out, we wanted to spoil him!
Christmas day came and amongst the 80+ presents under the tree, we got around to Diesel’s. He of course was more interested in the paper all over the lounge floor and the various boxes, until he smelt his chicken and cheese whiskers treats. Below is a picture of Diesel in his Santa hat & scarf. He looked so cute and just sat there with them on!
We also got him a little army t-shirt which he looks really cool in. There is also a picture of his scratch pole when it wasn’t so new, him and Dior loved playing games on there. God Bless our little Dior xx
Below is a picture of our very full Christmas Tree that year, with all those presents you can imagine the fun Diesel had with all the ripped paper and empty boxes 🙂
Afternoon my fellow bloggers. I apologise for the delay in getting another blog posted and also in getting back to some of you but I have had a very hectic couple of days. Now settling a little I am hoping to keep up with daily blogs, however I can not promise anything as I am standing in manager for the next fortnight and it can be quite head battering. Anyway to follow on from the last ‘Dior’ blog…
Time was still trucking on with our little Dior. She was growing fast and getting a little fatty. She was developing lovely and her beautiful personality was starting to shine through.
Dior had a few ‘favourite’ things to play with. She had a black shiny mouse with a bell on its tail. When she was a kitten she would carry this round in her mouth and if Eleanor and I would carry her around, she would still like to carry this and have a little play in our arms.
When she was a kitten also she had a favourite blue plastic ball that she sort of claimed as hers. See below picture:
As Dior got a little older and more mature, she became fond of fluffy soft things. At first we noticed how much she loved this little fluffy soft furby looking thing that was on elastic string. She would carry this all over, and then she would fling it around and stamp on it (playing her own little game.) See picture below of Dior
As you know from previous blogs Dior loved to snuggle up with Diesel and keep warm while having a nice nap. As she got older she liked to lie flat out on the couch! She just used to sprawl out. She looks ever so cute and very comfy.
The other day i had a bit of a mad OCD clean up in the home. And moved out some furniture and found some balls and mice of Diesel and Angel’s!
When i had finished cleaning round i thought it would be a cool idea to put all the toys / balls and mice nice and neatly with their scratching pole (a bit too neat in Eleanor’s eyes).
When Eleanor came in her first words when she seen the toys were ‘oh my god’. Although Angel quite liked it, Eleanor caught this picture of the toys and Angel.
After Angel had a mad moment and messed them neat toys up again, i decided to have a game of Dead Island on my PS3. Every time i go on my PS3 or Xbox 360 i sit on the computer chair because its comfy and Angel makes a point if having to be either on my knee or on the back of the chair. She just lays there resting against my shoulders watching me play. Shes very cool.
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!
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.
