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 🙂
Good morning to all my lush bloggers of the world and hope were all well?
As usual another funny story about our little boy Diesel. Again this is an old photo from Eleanor’s face book that prompted this blog as it was a memory.
When he was a little smaller than he is now, Eleanor bought him a new bed and a little camouflage cat vest. Diesel loved and still does love to wear his little vest, or any type of clothing. Eleanor caught this photo about 18 months ago of our little fella wearing his vest on our bed. How cute does he look? Do any of your cats allow you to dress them?
As you all know Diesel is an indoor cat, and so is Angel. When we had Isaac our dog we obviously used to walk him and sometimes when the weather was ok we used to take Diesel along too. Never very far, but just for some fresh air for him. We have a cat harness that’s very comfortable and he quite enjoys the odd stroll and wonder out. Eleanor took this picture of Diesel and me in our old back garden on a nice warm sunny day having a little picnic. He was really enjoying watching the birds and laying on the grass and blanket with his mummy’s.
Such a cutie 🙂
Hello guys, hope all is well.
Have any of you every experienced a ‘flying cat’…?? Eleanor was looking through her old face book photos the other day and came across this one so I had to share it with you all.
Eleanor had a moment a year or so ago with Diesel when she was playing with him with his toys in our hall way. She threw one of his toys and he was getting really excited so he ran, jumped and ran along the wall… Eleanor caught this below picture of him and you can only just see him in action. It was one of those moments (and we have many of them) where you wish you were recording on your phone rather than taking a still snap shot. But still… a very funny picture but I suppose this is what to expect when you have a rather funny little boy cat who gets really excited when you get all his toys out and make a big mess with balls, mice and god knows what else.
How are all my cat loving blogger’s out there today? Keep smiling; it’s nearly the weekend again.
Was just thinking the other day, what an easy life a cat has.
I mean a cat’s typical day plan is:
- Wake up, ask mummy for breakfast,
- Eat breakfast and then use the litter,
- Have a sit on the window sill, get some fresh air & watch the birds,
- Have a play with my toys & brothers or sisters,
- Have a little snack on some yummy biscuits and a sip of water,
- Settle down somewhere comfy for a nice nap for a good few hours,
(And then the cycle starts again… only this time its lunch, then dinner)
I was watching Angel and Diesel last weekend, and this was their typical day! Must get quite boring though… I try to keep them as well occupied as possible and always buy them new toys and things to keep their minds active. The other day I purchased a little pink tunnel with two balls attached to it for them! Angel loves it; Diesel likes to watch her run in and out of it, stalking him! It’s really funny.
After Angel went mad in her tunnel she settled down on the arm of our leather sofa (which has seen better days thanks to our furry kids) with her paws hanging over. She looked like she was just ‘chillaxing’ ha-ha… I caught this picture of her!
I hope everyone is well on this fine Wednesday,
Do you guys remember me talking about Angel playing fetch with the elastic hair bobble in the ‘Pedigree Ragdoll Cat’ blog and expressing this is a sign of her impressing her persons?
Well i managed to get a video of her playing this game with me the other day!
Click the below link to view the video… She is a very clever girl 🙂
Check this video out of Angel in all her glory playing a nice game of fetch with her favourite toy ‘the famous hair bobble’!
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.
