Hello my friends, Spot here!

Can you believe it? In two days time, there are two particular Peskies, aka Spike and Annie, who will be two years old! Doesn’t time fly?

So let’s have a look at what life’s been like with these two in our World!

Before they joined us, they were of course at Sue the breeder’s house, along with their brother, Vladimir and their Snow sister, Mia.

Annie had a naughty glint in her eye even then, don’t you think?

Once they reached 13 weeks old, they came to live with us, and a few weeks after that, they were allowed out into MY cat garden! (and Lula’s… she made me say that 😯 )

It didn’t take long for them to treat the garden like their own, exploring where they shouldn’t!

And making the most of all the fun things to play with!

They also found places to have a catnap, including Lula’s hammock 😯

I also passed on the fruits of my wisdom when they were young 🙂

They of course have both had successful show careers so far!

Spike competes in the Pedigree classes and has reached Grand Premier level…

Annie competes in the Household Pet section which is equally as competitive and has achieved spectacular success!

Overall Best in Show Household Pet, Bengal Cat Club, November 2014

Best in Show Pedigree Pet, Manchester Cat Show, September 2015

Phew! What a clever poppet 🙂  Here’s one of my mummy’s favourite rosettes from all of those (though they’re all lovely)

But aside from the show bench, they have matured into gorgeous sweeties! (my mummy made me say that 😯 )

They also brush up well for posh pics 🙂

Meanwhile, they’re still naughty and manage to escape from the cat garden whenever they can!

But they still enjoy a nice catnap. Often in ‘Lula’s’ hammock! (don’t think Lula gets much time in there these days 😉 )

So that’s that. Here’s to many more years of Peskiness!

Take care my friends!
