Happy Times with Dior

Good afternoon to all my lovely bloggers. Again apologies for delays in getting back to people on here and adding my next blog, my job is very testing at the moment and is taking up a lot of my time. I have to apologise in advance that the next few blogs are possibly not going to have many pictures and will possibly be longer than usual as I get more into Dior’s story and how she lost her battle.

Eleanor and I shared a lot of happy memories with Dior. She really was quite a little kitty. Very funny and very cute. She had some funny ways of going on. One of the main things I remember of Dior and how cute she was is that she had a specific teddy that she used to kiss and cuddle.

Well… in a fashion anyway! Every evening and sometimes during the day when she was ready for sleeps she had this teddy that she used to paw, and cuddle and suck on. She was so sweet. She used to do this until she fell asleep like a real baby. The teddy was very soft and I think this was the main reason why she loved it so much but she would also do it with the fluffy throw over. And when she had fell asleep there was a little wet patch where she had been sucking.

She used to always sleep above my pillow on a soft fluffy blanket with her teddy. Often I would wake up in the middle of the night, and I would automatically check the kitties and make sure they were ok. Dior would be sleeping soundly above me and I would run my hand over her lovely soft fur and give her a little pat, she would open one eye and give a little squeak and purr. She knew her mummy’s loved her.

To this day Eleanor and I still have the teddy. I can’t bring myself to put this teddy away or even move it off the bed. Eleanor and I named the teddy Dior (after Dior) and she gets cuddled every single night. I have to say the teddy is looking a little worse for wear now but I will never get rid of that teddy as it’s a part of her and just reminds me of her. She remains in the bed or on the bed every day! Miss Dior loads.

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.

   

Bah Bah White Cat!

Angel is such a character, she never fails to amaze us with her unique characteristics.

When Angel first found her voice, Eleanor knew she was going to be a little ‘madam’.  Eleanor caught this video of Angel, our talkative cat, on her trusty iPhone one morning whilst I was at work.

She is very cute & very demanding, at only 8 – 9 weeks old we sure had our hands full with this bundle of fluff!

Wouldn’t it be great if only we could understand our cats and what they say when they talk to us?

What do you think Angel is saying in this video?
