Easter Escapades!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

We’ve had a lovely weekend, my friends, and hope you have too! We’ve had some exciting news with our breeder’s queen, Flirtini, giving birth yesterday :) We’re hoping to welcome her brown spotty girl to our home in 13 weeks time if all goes to plan :) How exciting :)

 

On a slightly less happy note, the weather has turned all rainy now, but we did have a bit of sun earlier so Lula and I managed to enjoy some time outside. But where outside? We didn’t believe our luck when BOTH of us managed to escape out of the back door and run around the big garden! :) Then when daddy realised and tried to get us in, we ran up the big oak tree! We were quite naughty as we weren’t planning on going anywhere where we were supposed to be, so it gave daddy a chance to grab his camera and take some pics!

Hey Lula, come over to this bit!

Lula decided to stay where she was and mock daddy :)

 

My mummy said we were quite naughty and we should try and be well-behaved so that we set a good example to our new sister, but Lula and I both agree that’s a bit too boring :)

 

Take care my friends!

Adventures in the greenhouse

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Wow! Doesn’t time fly by? It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago when it was Christmas, yet Easter is nearly here already! One good thing about it though, is that the weather is getting nicer all the time :) We had a lovely day today and hope you did too?

 

I was slightly naughty today. Well I wouldn’t have been naughty if my daddy hadn’t made me naughty, so I blame him! I’m never naughty on purpose, it just kind of happens to me? Strange that ;)

 

So here’s the story: My mummy was busy making hand made cards in her craft room upstairs, and we were downstairs with daddy. Lula decided she wanted to go out for a walk in her harness jacket and leash – she loves taking the hoomins for a walk – so daddy got her ready and she took him out. But I realised after they’d gone that he’d not quite closed the door properly so a little push on the handle from me and – voilà! Freedom!!

 

But I was a good boy really because I could have escaped, but what I did do was decide to have a look round the greenhouse! I was having such fun in there, but imagine my daddy’s surprise when he came back from his walk with Lula, thinking I’d be catnapping indoors when really I was looking at him from inside there!

Hello?

 

I thought maybe I’d get away with it and he’d not notice me if I hid under the shelving

I’m going to pretend I’m not here :)

 

But he did see me, so I came right out in the open!

I think there might be some bugs in here

 

He wasn’t mad at me, particularly when I looked at him with my innocent face (I’ve managed to perfect that quite well over the years ;) )

You won’t tell me off, will you daddy? xx

 

Perhaps I should try and be a good boy next week and then I might get some non-chocolate Easter treats! :) Don’t forget – chocolate is bad for your kitties and your dogs so I won’t be having any of those :)

 

Take care my friends!

Cat Show News!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

I hope you’ve had a nice weekend? We’re all a bit confused over our days at the moment because I went to a cat show today… but it’s Sunday? Cat shows are normally on a Caturday so it’s completely throwing me! :) I think I might need a catnap or two now I’m home to get back to normal again! :)

But I expect you’re wondering how I did at the show? Well, I didn’t get my Imperial certificate, but I did get a Reserve Imperial, so my mummy was very proud! :) I was second in both of my two side classes, one of them was quite a large class full of wonderful Bengals, so that was a fantastic achievement :)

So overall we were all very proud, and my mummy had an excellent day with lots of goodies sold on her trade stand – her hand-crafted cards were especially popular today!

These photos were taken on an iPhone so they’re not all great quality, but hopefully they should give you an idea of our day :)

If my mummy leaves that door open any longer, I’ll be able to escape! :)

Or maybe I’ll just chill!

You’d think they would have ironed my rosette for me?

I think mummy’s going to get me some lovely treats! :)

Just chillin’

 

I’m very tired now, my friends, so I think I might get some sleep :)

 

Take care!

Strange weekend…?

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

What a funny weekend we’ve had! My mummy has been busy making things ready for our craft show and cat show next weekend, while we’ve been chillin’ out in the sun in our cat garden :) Someone said it was Mother’s Day here in the UK today, so I suppose we should have helped, but we find the glue gets in our fur and it’s not a good look :shock:

 

But somehow we managed to lose an hour today? My daddy said it’s because you hoomins mess with the clocks :shock: but all I know is that I got my dinner – a nice bowl of tuna cat food – nice and early, before Lula had even started her daily ritual of pacing and miaowing and generally making a nuisance of herself until our hoomins get so fed up, they get our food out just to shut her up! I’m glad she does that as it saves me a job :lol:

 

Another unusual thing about this weekend was that we had lots of lovely sunshine! It’s been a lot warmer than it usually is at this time of year, so, being a fair weather cat, it meant I actually enjoyed spending time in the cat garden with Lula :) Here’s what we got up to:

Do you sometimes get the feeling someone is copying you, my friends? I certainly had that today! :lol:

Brrrr! I thought it was meant to be Spring?

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Last week, I wrote about the fun Lula and I had been having in our cat garden, chasing all the bugs that were coming out to play! But things have turned a little wetter and a little chillier over the last few days! I’m not sure where Spring went? It’s so chilly here tonight that we have a frost on the way! My daddy’s not happy as he’s been preparing all the plants for the garden and not all of them like frost :(

 

I think all this uncertain weather is having an affect on Lula and me, because we’ve not done anything very naughty for a while! We have spent some time in our cat garden in between the rain showers but we’ve been very well behaved… we were wondering if you had any suggestions of naughty things we can do? We promise to keep them as a secret between you and me and won’t let our hoomins know ;)

 

Here’s some pics my daddy took today :)

I was nearly energetic for a little while…

… but then thought better of it :)

Not many bugs around today

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Perhaps some are hiding in here?

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Nope! There’s no bugs, so it’s back to watching birdies again!

 

So as you can see, we’ve had an uneventful day! We hope you’ve had a nice weekend?

Take care!

The bugs are back in town!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

We are FULL of the joys of Spring, we’re having such wonderful weather here in our World at the moment, though we all know how fickle the weather can be, don’t we? I bet it won’t last, but we’re enjoying it while it does! :)

 

One of the best things about the good weather is that it brings all the bugs out, and it wasn’t only Lula chasing them today – I joined in too! In fact, Lula and I spent a lot of time in the cat garden starting off with breakfast…

Breakfast in the sunshine!

 

But then we thought we’d catch some bugs for breakfast instead!

This tree has lots of bugs!

Watch out, bug – Lula’s spotted you!

 

The bugs seem to be everywhere we look!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

The bugs are high and low

 

Sometimes we get lucky and a birdie flies low over our garden

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Wow! That was a BIG bug! :)

 

All that sunshine makes us thirsty, so despite the fact we have a bowl full of clean, crisp water at all times, we prefer to find other places to drink from!

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Nice refreshing drink

 

After all that bug hunting, I decided to go indoors for a nice catnap, though Lula stayed outside and had a little rest before getting back to it! :)

Taking a break from the bug-hunting

 

Well, it’s only March and we have this many bugs to chase already! We think it’s going to be a bumper summer, my friends! :)

 

Take care!

Six things to do on a sunny Sunday! :)

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

What a wonderful day we had today! We had some lovely sunshine to remind us that Spring will soon be here! Though we do remember this time last year, when we had so much snow, it almost stopped us from going to one of our cat shows! We all know how the weather can be, so we can’t rule that out again, can we? :lol:

 

But just in case you were twiddling your paws, and not really sure what to do to make the most of this fine weather, here’s Spot’s handy guide to six things you can do on a sunny Sunday!

 

First of all, you can take advantage of people going in and out of the back door more often and escape into the big garden! :)

I’m in the big garden! :)

 

Of course, our Harry cat is allowed in the big garden all the time and loves to chill out!

Chillin’

 

Maybe you’re more of a poseur… so how about showing off your profile for everyone to see?

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Is this my good side, do you think?

 

Or, if you’re feeling a bit more energetic, how about some ‘exercise’ on the treadmill?

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

I think this is broken, it’s not going very fast ;)

 

If you’re stuck indoors, you can always watch the birdies :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Hello birdies!

 

Or… of all of the above is too much, how about you just sit there and look beautiful?

Beautiful Lula!

 

We hope you all had a lovely Sunday too, my friends?

Take care!

Cat fight!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend? We’ve been getting out more and more recently, now the weather’s getting a little better :) But today, I was a bit naughty! I know what you’re thinking – Spot? Naughty? How can that be? You know I am such a good boy usually, don’t you? :shock:

 

But I think the thought of Spring coming has put me in a good mood (I don’t like the bad weather) and I got a little too excited today! And poor Lula was the one who got the brunt of it!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Hmmm… I think Lula wants me to pounce on her!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Oooh yes! Look at those ears!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Now she’s having a lie-down! But those ears are still not happy!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Lula being submissive….

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

…but I don’t care! I pounced anyway!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

You can get up now, Lula :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

She’s all right really :) I was only playing

 

I was just getting her back for all the times she’s pounced on me! I felt it was about time, don’t you, my friends? :)

 

Take care!

So many cat trees!

 ~ This post is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend, Linda Carlisle Jenson. We were deeply saddened to learn of her unexpected passing. ~
~ Rest in peace, Linda ~

 

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Our weather still continues to be a bit naughty, most days are still quite windy and rainy – we hope that Spring will be here soon! But we were thinking that we are such lucky cats because even when the weather is bad, we still have so many wonderful places to hang out!

 

First of all, there is the very first cat tree that my mummy and daddy ever bought – long before any of us five were even born! It did have another bit on the top, but that has long since disappeared, it still makes a great place for us to sit on and either sleep or watch the world go by outside though!

Two tiers for double sleeping!

Or, we can fit on the top together! (at a push!)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

Then, when we want something a little bigger, the second cat tree they bought is now also in the conservatory so it makes a great place to scratch on, play on, sleep on and of course watch the outside world on! It too has missing bits, but we don’t mind :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz… x 2! :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

I think there’s quite a lot of sleeping going on around here! :)

But of course, for ultimate luxury, nothing beats our new Tigga Towers tree! It’s so comfy and there are lots of different places to chill out in or on!

Robbie likes the platform with the squidgy bit in the middle!

I quite like the hammock!

Friday likes the squidgy platform too!

Lula can look down on the world from the igloo!

 

And of course, when the weather gets a bit nicer, we also have lots of places in our cat garden to sit on!

Just one of our cat garden platforms :)

 

As I said at the beginning, I think we are very lucky cats indeed! :)

 

Take lots of care, my friends!

What a week!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Well, last week I didn’t get much time to talk to you as I had been quite naughty and my mummy grounded me! This week I’ve learned my lesson and have been quite well behaved (sort of :shock: ) but the weather? The weather has been soooo naughty! Much naughtier than me!

 

Here in the UK, there are many places that are experiencing terrible flooding due to non-stop rain and we’ve had 100+ mile an hour winds on top of that too! We’ve heard of terrible snow and ice in North America so we hope all of our friends are OK.

 

In our World, you may already know that we’ve not been flooded, but we were affected by the wind :shock: It blew over a tree in our big garden, it broke a few panes of glass in the greenhouse and it also left us without electricity for a couple of days! We were very cold my friends! Our mummy and daddy struggled at night time too, though of course us kitties can see better in the dark than you hoomins :)

 

But thankfully today, all of that seemed a long time ago as the sun was out and the sky was blue! We spent quite a lot of time in our cat garden and it gave us a chance to check out if there had been any damage in there…

 

I started off by checking out the garage

The garage looks ok

 

Whilst Lula went looking for bugs in the borders, though I think the wind blew them all away! :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

She can’t find any bugs!

 

So she decided to check out the other side of the garden instead

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

There’s none over there either!

 

Meanwhile, I was keeping my paws dry and looking at daddy who was mending the greenhouse on the other side of the fence

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Careful you don’t cut yourself on that glass, daddy!

 

Then I decided to get down and was minding my own business, but behind me Lula had that naughty glint in her eye…

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

What are you thinking, Lula?

 

I soon found out what she was plotting – naughty girl! :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Gotcha!

 

So I decided enough was enough and went indoors for a nice catnap :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

So that was our week, my friends! I hope next week is perhaps not quite so eventful!

Take care!

Love from Spot
