Kittens First Christmas

Hey Guys,

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 🙂

How does your cat show affection?

Good Morning to all the bloggers of the world.

I was browsing my old posts on my blog the other day from when i first set my blog up and came accross this one, with this having no likes, comments and views i thought i would repost it and share it again now that Its a Pussy Cats Life has more followers and viewers.

To any other cat lovers / owners out there, I would love to know how your cat shows you affection and love.

To me and Eleanor there is a mixture of things our cats do.

For Diesel, he loves to sit on the kitchen bench waiting for his breakfast, squint his beautiful bright green/yellow eyes and head butt you, yes head butt! This actually hurts sometimes, but it is so rewarding. When you get the initial butt you also get a lovely soft head rub, he is so cute, and at the same time he is purring like a trooper & squeaking. This is a regular morning thing when we feed him.

Before Dior died she never used to sit on the kitchen bench much but her way of saying she was hungry for breakfast would be to stick her extra long tail in the air and give a little quiet meow. She would walk in and out of our legs in a figure of 8 and if we bent down to give her a little stroke she used to jump into the air on her 2 back paws and rub her face on our hands. Very cute!

For our little Angel, she always likes to be the centre of attention, given the little madam she is turning out to be just lately. Her way of showing affection is to almost bah like a little baby lamb, she loves to rubher head on your bare feet and give them the occasional lick. If she is just after cuddles which is every 30 mins or so (she is a demanding little lady) she will walk all over me and Eleanor whilst we are watching the soaps and walk from lap to lap, chest to chest, she can never decide who to sit with, but when she has made her mind up, she curls up and buries her little head in our arm pit. She is very pretty and such a little baby!

Diesel in clothes

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 🙂

Flying Cat!!

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.

Diesel talking wanting his dinner UPDATE

Good morning everyone and i hope your all well? I just want to apologise firstly because i have not had a chance to reply to anyones comments as of yet (i will do soon hopefully), but want to say a big thank you for all your ongoing support to its a pussy cats life & also for my birthday wishes! And before i forget, i posted this blog a few days ago and stupidly forgot to post the video with it. So this is a repost blog and the awaited video is attached to you tube at the bottom of this blog, happy viewing!

I have spoken before about Diesel and what he is like when it comes to breakfast / dinner times in our house hold. He is very vocal, but I do love this about him.

Every morning, he is asking for his breakfast as soon as he sees our eyes open! We are getting the figure of 8 treatment in and our of our legs, he jumps up to stroke his head, he talks constantly, and then when you go into the kitchen to do his and Angel’s breakfast he jumps on the counter, paws at you, gives a lot of lovely kisses and head butts and talks and purrs loudly.

Eleanor took this video a few months ago one evening when he was after his dinner so I thought I would share this with you all.

Check out this video of Diesel talking wanting his dinner.

What do your cats/dogs do when they want their dinner/breakfast?

Have a great day guys

Diesel and Isaac nap times

Happy Saturday to my fellow bloggers, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Eleanor and I are jetting off to Gran Canaria tonight for 10 days so if my blog is a little quiet and I don’t reply to any comments etc its not because I am being ignorant, its because I am sunning it in Gran Canaria on a nice white sandy beach… not rubbing it in or anything! 😀

I have spoken before about Isaac our Staffordshire bull terrier that we re-homed. I found this picture on face book of Diesel and Isaac asleep together on Isaacs bed and wanted to share this on my blog.

I mentioned about Isaac looking mean but being a real softie. This picture just proves my point. Isaac would regularly be lying on his bed and Diesel would walk over to have a snuggle. Isaac would move off the bed to let Diesel on the bed and Isaac would be left laid half on the bed and half off the bed. Funny pair to watch.

Sometimes if Isaac had been naughty and was being told off Diesel would dive off the bed for example and give Isaac a good slap round the chops with his paws. I think Diesel was saying ‘listen to mum’ lol…

Diesel as a kitten

I found a few old school pictures of Diesel as a kitten which may already be on my blog under the ‘Diesel’ page but I thought I would add them on a post for you guys to have a little look and laugh if you wish 😉

The picture below is when Diesel was just 9 weeks old. I look at this picture and can’t help but laugh, I just think he looks like a bat. He has huge ears, you can see these little eyes, he has his ‘leather lips’ showing and you can just to say make out where his little fangs show! Which still to this day seem too big for his mouth! He often lies on his back, with his legs wide open, looking and Eleanor and I, his ears are flapped back and his fangs are well and truly out… I call him batty!! Haha He was a bit of an ugly little kitten back in the day, I think the ears make him look funny!

The picture below is when Diesel was about 8 months old. Eleanor had her own place at the time; we were living together but in our own places! So if I stayed with Eleanor I used to take Diesel over there too. He loved going to Eleanor’s and he loved to return home too. He loved the change. This picture was taken when he was in a playful little mood, enjoying his ball and underneath you can just to say see Isaac’s snout! What a handsome bunch of lads.

Diesel loves his food

Happy Saturday to all my lovely bloggers, and if you havent done yet, please check out yesterdays blog and see if you have been nominated in the Super Sweet Blogging Award 😀 Have a fab weekend…

We have spoken on here before about Diesel and his morning routine. It never changes, as soon as he sees our eyes open, he wants his breakfast. He is so cheeky! We often trip over him because he gets under our feet if we don’t feed him when he wants it – he can be very demanding but he is well worth it at the same time.

Diesel and Angel both have ceramic Garfield food/water bowls… I am sure most of you know who Garfield is? If not – click the link to see who GARFIELD is – Garfield is a cheeky greedy chap much like our Diesel. We thought these bowls were really cute, so they each have 3 bowls, one for water, one for meat and one for dry mix.

Their bowls are never empty always have dry mix and water to see them through the day until tea time. Diesel looks forward to his breakfast; he will usually have a trout and spinach Felix pouch on a morning and Angel likes her sardine and tomato one.

I caught this snap shot of Diesel showing how much he enjoys his breakfast on a morning – tongue to prove it…

Diesel and his secret stripes – UPDATE!

A couple of blogs ago I mentioned Diesel and his unique secret strips.

He is a black cat with chocolate brown stripes running through him that you can only see when in the sunlight.

For those of you who wanted to see some more shots of Diesel in all his stripy glory I managed to catch one this other morning in the sunlight at around 6:30am whilst he was asking for his breakfast.

What do you think? He is beautiful isn’t he? Ive made this picture nice and big so you all get the real effect of this beautifully handsome boy!

The things I often laugh at on these lovely pictures of our boy are his lips. His nickname is ‘leather lips’ because his lips are black in colour and look like leather… He often has his mouth half open looking a little dumb and funny. He’s cute though.

Diesel and Angel with Rolo

A few weeks ago I introduced our new addition to the family Rolo. I spoke a little about how Diesel and Angel were with Rolo at first so I just wanted to blog a further update about our precious furry friends.

After the initial excitement that Rolo gave to Diesel and Angel things calmed down a little. Rolo has become more settled and is easier to handle.

Angel and Diesel still jump 3ft in the air when Rolo roles into them in his little blue ball and bush their tails up because it frightens them, which is really funny to watch.

The cage is still a whole new thing to Angel and Diesel, they could sit for hours on a night just watching little Rolo in his wheel, having a bite to eat, a drink, a little dig. I am sure Rolo knows he is winding them up when he starts making noise in his cage. Angel has started a habit of sitting on top of the cage just staring down watching him and Diesel likes to sit/lay on the arm of the sofa also looking down watching Rolo. They are funny little things.

When Rolo is in his ball and he stops moving around in it and just sits still, Angel is fascinated by this and runs up to the ball, gives it a little knock with her paw and then runs off when Rolo starts moving again! They are comical, I will try to get a video of this in action, but for now here’s a little picture of Angel and Diesel having a stare out with Rolo in his cage.
