A Trip Down Memory Lane

Hello my friends, Spot here!

We’re going to be taking a trip down memory lane today :) My mummy says we have lots of new followers who’ve not seen some of our baby pics before, and indeed a lot of the photos I’m going to share have not been seen by even the longest standing of our friends :)

So it’s all about me today! :lol: But my mummy said I need to include Lula too, so I suppose it would be nice to do that :)

Lula and I were born on 14th May 2011, we were the only two in our litter and we’ve not spent a night apart ever :)

We came to live with mummy and daddy in August 2011 and we soon settled in.

We found lots of new games to play like “playing with the scratching post that doubled up as a door post” – I bet you’ve not heard of that game before have you?

We also soon discovered the lovely new tunnel that the hoomins had bought for us

Hi!

 

We loved our scratching post too, though it didn’t last all that long and is now replaced by our Tigga Towers :)

It was also good for snoozing on… at least I liked to snooze, Lula always has been the more alert out of the two of us :)

What’s up Lula?

 

Even when she lay down, she didn’t always sleep!

Lula alert

 

But she did give in and have a nice catnap now and again, and we both looked so innocent!

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

When we weren’t sleeping, we explored around the house, Lula liked the bath

Please turn the water on!

 

When the water wasn’t switched on, she found a more conventional way to have a drink :)

Slurp! :)

 

Meanwhile, I liked to practise the camouflage look in the houseplants!

Bet you can’t see me! Or maybe you can :)

 

Sometimes I spent some time alone on the cat tree

And Lula snoozed on the sofa!

Zzzz… Zzzz… Zzzz…

 

At the end of the day, it was all about being cute, and here I am trying to be just that! :)

Cute!

 

I hope you liked these pics, my friends!

Take care!

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…

© www.bengalcatworld.com
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!

Bengal Ladies at the Bengal Spa!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

My daddy says we’re very lucky cats – he’s been making even more improvements to our cat garden and he thinks we’re very spoiled! :lol:

Yes, he has just put the finishing touches to our new Bengal Spa and it wasn’t long before the ladies – Lula and little Annie – checked it out!

Spike and I, being the gentlemen that we are, let them have first go. We are good boys like that, you see :)

Annie may be little, but she’s never afraid of trying out new things first and sure enough she was soon investigating :)

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Oooh! This looks interesting!

 

She then spotted the kitty toys from our kitty paddling pool that my mummy had put into the water

She watched them as they went downstream a little

I’m going to get the toys!

 

And then decided to have a look at the end bit instead :)

Then it was time to appreciate the whole thing from a different angle!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
It’s always good to look at things from a different perspective :)

 

Then Lula came along to look at the toys which had been put back to the top

And she too was enjoying different views….

…. until I came along and made her jump!

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Lol! I made you jump, Lula!

 

So then she decided to get her own back and chased me around the cat garden until I surrendered! :lol: Oh well, at least that left the Bengal Spa free for me and Spike to enjoy! :)

Take care my friends!

Funtime in our Garden :)

Hello my friends, Spot here!

What a wonderful few days we’ve had in our World recently :) We’ve  certainly made the most of it by spending lots of quality time outdoors and even I enjoyed a nice bit of fresh air and had at least an hour’s less catnapping time compared to normal :)

We’ve been making the most of our wonderful garden and I’ve been taking time out to appreciate all the lovely things the hoomins provide for us in there ;)

We have lots of platforms where we can chill out and watch the world go by…

Chillin’

 

And we can sometimes get a little carried away and go even higher by climbing on the roof!

Though of course Lula usually prefers to have a little snooze inside the house rather than on top of it :)

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

 

There’s things to keep us in tip top condition, like lots of scratchers

And we never go hungry as we can eat al fresco!

© www.bengalcatworld.com
Yummy!

 

There’s lots of grasses for us to hide and play in

Spike in the grass

 

And Lula in particular adores the patches of catmint that are dotted around

Annie likes to be helpful on laundry day by making sure there’s nothing left behind in the wash basket when the hoomins are hanging out the washing

Helpful Annie

 

We haven’t had any snow for a long time, so the hoomins put this on one of our perches to make it look like there was some!

…. though they said it was to make it more comfy for us :lol:

 

If we ever want to be extra comfy, we can of course keep an eye on our cat garden from inside mummy’s office :)

And we’re so excited about our new addition, which is still to be finished – our new waterfall!

© www.bengalcatworld.com

But after all the hard work of enjoying the garden, the best thing to really do is chill out and maybe have a nice catnap or two ;)

Me chillin’ (again)

 

I’m just hoping the weather stays nice for a few days so daddy can finish the waterfall and we can inspect his work and make sure it meets our standards :lol:

Take care my friends!

Happy birthday Spot and Lula!

Hello my friends, Spot here!

As you may have seen on our Facebook page, my twin and I celebrated our 5th birthday yesterday! Yay! I had lots of nice chicken treats and some yummy tuna cat food for tea… though I get those most days so perhaps my mummy should have made a bit more of an effort on reflection :shock:

 

As seems to be customary on these occasions, I’ve been looking through the archives to find some baby photos that my mummy said I had to share. I’m not sure I like it, but you know me – I’m a good boy and always does as I’m told *crosses paws behind back*  :lol:

 

So life started off at Sue the breeder’s house and after a few weeks our new owners – i.e. mummy and daddy – started to visit us quite regularly. We made sure we pulled off the cute look :)

Then after 15 weeks we went to our new home and soon settled in :)

Lula made herself at home on the kitchen table lol :)

Silly Lula

 

And she also liked to have a good look around the bathtub

Though I preferred it when there was water in it

Careful Lula! You may fall in :)

 

I told mummy off for taking pics of me with green bits in the way

Naughty mummy

 

So she made me move and took another

This isn’t comfy!

 

Lula started off her successful show career before I did

Whilst I stayed at home and helped mummy with her iPad (which were quite new out at the time) :)

I think you should press this bit

 

Friday, Harry and Robbie came to tolerate us quite quickly (as long as we didn’t try and eat their dinner :lol: )

Yummy dinner

 

And after a nice dinner, what better thing is there to do than have a nice catnap? (some things never change :lol: )

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

 

So there’s our first few weeks/months in a nutshell! Doesn’t time fly?

Take care my friends!

Lazy Sunday! :)

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….

Listening out for Lula

 

… 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 :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
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 :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
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 :)

 

© www.bengalcatworld.com
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 :)

 

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

 

So that was our day today :)

Take care my friends!
