Our World this week :)

Hello my friends, Spot here!

Can you believe it’s Sunday already? It’s amazing how quickly a week passes, isn’t it? We’ve had some nice things happen this week and of course some not so nice things…

You may recall at the start of the week, our Spike decided to worry the entire household by staying out overnight when he shouldn’t :shock: Luckily, he came home the next day, but he would still like to escape given the chance. Here he is plotting his next move, naughty big pesky :lol:

I had a much nicer week though :) As you probably know by now, I do like a little catnap now and again and I do like my comfort. All for research purposes, you understand :)

Quite often, though, I have a little person helping me with my “research”…

Little Annie helping me

 

This week, I was able to put my research powers to good use – see! I knew there was a reason for me purrfecting my snoozing skills all these years!

My mummy’s nice friends at Tigga Towers gave her one of their new memory foam cat pillows, and asked if she could see what us cats thought of it!

Well! Of course, I’m always happy to oblige if it means helping others, so I waited patiently for mummy to fluff it up and position it, and there I was – straight on the case to see what it was like! :lol:

Mind you, it didn’t take long for the little pesky to join me – it’s a good job there’s room for two!

Testing out the pillow

 

So I asked Annie what she thought and she said it was very comfortable indeed, and for a change I actually agreed with her! I can see us me having lots and lots of nice snoozes on it – its so lovely and soft yet supportive at the same time! And just the purrfect size for us :)

Then we asked our mummy what she thought…

What do you think mummy?

 

She said that the main thing is that we like it which we clearly do. Lots of people buy beds that their cats hardly ever use, but this wasn’t the case here.

She then got all sensible about it, saying how practical it is as the outer cover is easily removed and washed, and there is wipe clean surface covering the inside pillow in case of little accidents. Not that I would have any ‘little accidents’ of course :shock:

She knows how well the Tigga Towers covers wash from looking after the coverings on the towers we have :) So compared to some other cat beds, it’s very easy to take care of.

I must admit, I did start to drift off a little here as I think practical is a bit boring if I’m honest :) All I know is that it’s comfy and snuggly and is now my favourite bed if I’m in that part of my World :)

In the meantime, Lula was outside enjoying a cat nap in her hammock for a change as Spike wasn’t occupying it :)

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

And then Annie decided it was time for some fresh air, so she went to catch some rays

This week has also seen our Friday cat going somewhere we don’t like going – to the Cat Doctor! She had a poorly mouth with sore teeth and gums. Well, she is 18½ so she’s had those teeth for a long time :)

Luckily, the Cat Doctor was able to give her some meds which have helped a lot, so hopefully we can avoid her needing to have surgery which is a bit of a risk at her age.

When she came back from that place, I was nice and let her sit on my new bed and Lula kept her company :)

Having a chat

 

In fact, I have been very nice and let Lula and Harry use my pillow. And both of them have had the little Annie pesky join them on it too! There’s no escaping her :)

So the only cat in our World who I’ve not seen on my new bed is Robbie.

Robbie likes the simple things in life and often sleeps in a cardboard box which has a pillow in for him, though I think I need to educate him on trying something new :)

Meanwhile, I settled down for a nice snooze. Accompanied by you-know-who :lol:

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

So that’s a week in our World, my friends! I hope you enjoyed catching up with all seven of us :)

Take care!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

I’m back after a little break – my mummy and daddy went off to some place called ‘Portugal’ so I wasn’t able to write my blog last week as the house sitter lady doesn’t know how to help me :(

I’m sure you didn’t miss us too much :) though we’ve not really done a lot to report on since mummy and daddy returned, we’ve just been chillin’ out now the weather’s getting warmer and spending lots of time outdoors in our cat garden :)

I love to have a sleep in Lula’s new favourite place, the cat house :) But I keep a close ear out for her….

… and when I know she’s coming, I make a quick exit ….

… and she’s none the wiser! :lol:

Meanwhile, Spike was chillin’ out on the old cat house that daddy was doing some maintenance on, or trying to at least :shock:

Spike: Chillin’

 

And Friday was having a nice sleep in mummy’s office :)

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

Annie also wanted to have a snooze in there, her favourite place at the moment seems to be Geoff the catnip Giraffe cushion :)

Let me in! :)

 

So Spike took advantage and decided to check out Annie’s favourite mouse in a ball toy :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
What’s all this about then?

 

But soon decided that he preferred the grass instead :)

Yummy grass

 

Meanwhile, Lula had wandered off back indoors, so I took full advantage of that and settled down for a nice snooze of my own :)

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

So that was our day today :)

Take care my friends!

Lazy Weekend in our World!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Well, we have had no snow to report in our World which is most disappointing. Or at least Lula thinks it is anyway. Did you know that The Peskies (Annie and Spike) have never even seen proper snow? :shock: They saw a light covering last year, but as soon as it was here, it was gone again! I didn’t even get enough time to wake up from my nice catnap before it had disappeared :)

 

This has been an unusual weekend for us – no shows, nothing very exciting happening either. My daddy was still getting over the little bug he had in the week, so the hoomins hardly went out at all!

 

The Spike Pesky was very happy as this meant he spent lots of time with mummy in her office whilst she worked on things for the store and packing up the orders. Spike is very much a mummy’s boy because she gives him lots of cuddles and treats. I allowed my mummy to give me some cuddles and even a kiss or two today, seeing as it’s Mother’s Day here in the UK, but usually I draw the line at her giving me some nice treats and that’s it :lol: Unless I’m in a cuddly mood of course, which happens more than I care to admit :D

 

Meanwhile, the rest of us pottered around really! Here’s some snapshots of our weekend :)

 

When Spike wasn’t smooching around in mummy’s office, he enjoyed a bit of birdie watching in the garden

Daddy put together the cat tree that Annie won for being Best in Show recently – it’s a purrfect fit!

Meanwhile, Friday was birdie watching from the Tigga Towers in the conservatory – a much more comfortable way of doing so!

Whilst, I had to share the top bunk with Harry (again…!) It’s not like there isn’t enough space, he always has to come and sit on me when I’m up there! *sigh* :D

Robbie had the right idea and went up to the heated floor in the bathroom for his nap in the squidgy purple bed :)

Whilst Lula concentrated more on a bit of purrsonal hygiene in the old cat tree by the door :)

So another Monday is nearly upon us, and I wonder what this week will bring? I’m thinking some nice tuna and some of my favourite chicken treats would be a good start :)

Take care my friends!

Pairs of us lot of course, to celebrate this romantic day ;) Though not all of the pics are very romantic :lol: But they fitted the theme … kind of! :shock:

Spotlight on … Friday

Hello my friends, Spot here!

So here we are at the penultimate episode of my focus on the cats in our World and today the Spotty Spotlight is on Friday! Many of you will know quite a lot about Friday already, but just in case you don’t here’s a brief history of our little tabby girl :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Pretty Friday

Friday was born in March 1998, so she’s almost 17 years old – her mother gave birth whilst at the cat rescue centre, and so Friday came along :) She also had two brothers who quickly found new homes. No-one wanted Friday as they said she was the runt of the litter and too small – until my mummy and daddy came along that is! They fell in love straight away and took her home as soon as she was ready, to live with the other cats they had at that time – Charlie, Misty and Bill (female) who were all rescue cats too :)

Petite Friday

 

Friday got her name because when she was a little baby, she ate some of her mummy’s dry food and it got stuck in her throat. Luckily, the vet didn’t live far away from the rescue centre and he rushed round and managed to dislodge the food and saved her life! All that happened on Good Friday, hence her name :)

 

Friday has used up just about all of her 9 lives… she once went missing for nearly two weeks in one of the hottest summers we’d had. It was never known where she had been, she just turned up out of the blue and asked when dinner was going to be served! :lol: She was a bit skinny (even for her) and very hungry/thirsty actually so it’s a good job she came back when she did. Another time, she came home one evening limping and was rushed off to the emergency vet – it turned out she had broken her leg, and she had to wear a little plaster cast for a few weeks! This is not to mention the time she stole a whole raw chicken (daddy’s dinner) off the worktop and ran into the bushes into the field with it and chomped away at it – daddy wasn’t happy! My mummy (who is a vegetarian) said it was funny watching her run down the garden with it though, the chicken was almost bigger than her! :lol:

Pondering another adventure?

 

Friday really is one in a million… she just accepts anything that’s thrown at her without complaint :) She has accepted all 6 cats who have come to live with her straight away with no nastiness or complaint. She will let mummy trim her claws without a sound, unlike Lula who miaows so loud, it’s a wonder people haven’t called the authorities by now! :shock:

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Such a patient girl! :)

 

But there is no denying she is slowing down now as she gets older and she does like her rest (when she can get it)…

She may ponder some indoor exercise sometimes …

Should I get some exercise?

 

… but she definitely doesn’t like the cold weather and rarely goes out in the winter, she prefers a snuggly snooze in a sun puddle!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

So that’s a potted history of our eldest and smallest cat, my friends – yes, Annie now weighs a little more than Friday does :)

 

So we only have one last cat to feature in my Spotty Spotlight and if you’ve followed my posts, you won’t need to have the deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes to work out who it is :lol: BUT! I am going to make you wait a little longer for the final episode, as next week I’ll be bringing you all the news from the cat show Spike and Lula are going to on Caturday!

 

Take care my friends!

Love from Spot

A Year in our World – Part Four

Hello my friends, Spot here!

 

Welcome to the final part of my review of the year which covers October to December and what a busy three months it was! I have really struggled with choosing the photos for the blog today – it was so hard deciding what I should leave out as there are so many I could have shared :)  But being as I posted a random pic of me at the start of the last post, here’s a random pic of Lula to start things off today! :lol:

High five, Lula!

 

October

 

Early October saw Lula, Spike and Annie go off to the Tabby Cat Club show in Warwickshire :) This was Spike and Annie’s second competitive show and I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count which number show it was for Lula. Once again, her Olympian class was very tough and she wasn’t placed, but in their subsequent reports, one of the judges said that she is: “A super gentle girl with plenty of star quality” so that was quite nice :)

Spike did very well at the show, he won his breed class and two of his large side classes and was such a good boy, but was overshadowed slightly by Annie who not only won all but one of her classes, but also went on to be judged Best in Show Pedigree pet so was up for the final Best in Show Judging! There she beat the Best in Show Non Pedigree Pet to win Best in Show Overall Household Pet! What an achievement at only her second show! We were all so proud :)

Also in October, that mysterious building I mentioned last time was finished, and it turned out it was a nice office for my mummy! :)

Mummy’s office :)

 

But even nicer than that, it also meant our cat garden could be re-modelled and was made twice the size, incorporating the office too! So we now have even more space to run around in and more things to explore! :) And mummy can keep her eye on us if she’s in her office, though when we get cold or tired, we of course also go in there and have a nice catnap on the sofa :)

Checking out the new building

 

November

 

We had two of our favourite cat shows in November – the Bengal Cat Club Show and the pinnacle of the show calendar, the Supreme!

 

At the Bengal Cat Club, Spike again did very well, winning almost all of his classes :) Again he was a very good boy too, except for when he spilt his water all over his pen :shock: It’s a good job mummy takes spare blankets with her :) But again, he took it all in his stride…

Spike is chilled out

 

We didn’t dare believe that Annie would do as well as she did in her last show… but that’s exactly what she did! She won Overall Best in Show Household Pet for the second show running! What a clever girl! :)

Three weeks later and it was time to go to the Supreme! Lula went on exhibition for the Bengal Cat Club and was impeccably behaved all day, she does like to show off though :)

 

 

Annie and Spike both again did tremendously well! Annie won the special fun kitten class, beating lots and lots of other kittens; she came first in her breed class and also won best of breed too! :)

 

 

Spike didn’t come anywhere in the special kitten class, but like Annie he won first place in his breed class and Best of Breed, but the difference was his breed class was one of the largest in the show! Such an achievement at that level to beat so many other wonderful Bengal kittens, again we were so proud, though Spikey was his usual chilled out self :)

Phew! What a busy month that was!

 

 

December

 

We decided we’d be on our best behaviour in December as we wanted to make sure the nice man in red visited us at Christmas, though I’m not quite sure Spike got the memo saying that!

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Lula and I are wondering what Spike’s doing up there?

 

I thought I’d at least pretend I liked the two peskies and allowed them to share my perch :)

It’s not like I do like them, you understand, but they just seem to follow me everywhere! :)

Pretty soon, it was time for our final show of the year, the National! Again, Spike and Annie went and were very good kitties. They had an excellent show, though not as good as previous ones. Mind you, you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise if you looked at Annie’s pen!

The weather was quite reasonable most days, so we spent lots of time in the cat garden

And we also managed to get together for our very first group photo of all seven of us!

And then we had Christmas when our good behaviour paid off and we got lots of yummy treats :)

 

Which pretty much brings our review to a close, my friends! I hope you enjoyed travelling the journey with us! Let’s hope this year brings lots more exciting things and here’s to a happy and successful 2015 to all of you!

 

Take care!
Spot
