You know, my daddy is so good – he takes so many great pictures of us and spends hours waiting for the perfect shot. So I thought for today’s post, I’d put together a little album of some of my favourite pictures that he’s taken over the last few months. I must say, though, that it was difficult to choose just a few as there are so many great ones in our collection!
So this is a little tribute to my lovely daddy and his photographic skills – I hope you enjoy it and maybe see one or two you’ve not seen before.
Oh dear! Those of you who follow my Facebook and/or Twitter pages will know that Lula and I have been very naughty recently! Yesterday, mummy got home from work and had to do a double take as she thought I was looking very odd! My fur was very dark – you couldn’t make out any of the lighter bits and I was also behaving quite sheepishly, too.
She then looked at Lula and noticed that she had black marks in her fur too, though not as bad as mine (which is a good job being as she is a Snow Bengal!). So mummy had a look around and realised that while she’d been out, we’d been up the chimney! 😯 Not only were we filthy, but so were the cream carpet and some of the sofas and chairs – eeek!
Mummy didn’t even stop to make herself a cup of tea as she normally does when she gets in from work – it was straight upstairs with us two and into the bathtub! The only problem was that she didn’t have any proper cat shampoo – only a “non-rinse” one which you can use as a spot cleaner. And no, I don’t mean me – I mean one that you can use without doing a full bath 😆 You see, she doesn’t really bathe us cats normally, she would only do it if we were really, really dirty. Like we were yesterday in fact.
Here’s some photos of us looking sorry for ourselves after our bath!
Mummy got quite a lot of the soot out of our fur, but not quite all of it, so we are thinking that another bath might be imminent today! Especially as she went out earlier and bought some proper cat shampoo!
So, we devised a cunning plan! It’s been a beautiful day today and we were let outside as soon as mummy got home after going to a funny chap called “the dentist” and buying the shampoo 🙂 We therefore decided that if we stay out long enough, mummy will forget all about her need to wash us, and then we’ll just have our tea and settle down for our cat naps this evening!
So here’s a little of what we’ve been up to today outside!
I’ve been hiding in the foliage around the pond…
….. And Lula’s been trying to hide in the tree!
Do you think our plan will be successful and we’ll get out of having another bath? I hope so 😀
Hello all my friends! We’ve had quite a lot of new subscribers over the last week or two and it makes me very happy that people like reading our blog and looking at our photos! Welcome to you all 🙂
We have had such mixed weather here recently, but my mummy tells me that this is what British summers are normally like, so I suppose I had better get used to it 😆 I was only a little baby for most of last summer, so I can’t really remember much of it 🙂
But today has been one of the nicer days, so Lula and I got out into the field and had a fantastic run around! This photo has got quite a lot of zoom on it, we were quite a distance from our garden!
Robbie saw the fun we were having and when we got back to being a bit closer to our own territory, he decided to come and join us. At first, Lula didn’t recognise who he was as he kind of crept up on us without us noticing, so you can see how she bushed all her fur up – see how thick her tail is! Us cats do this if we’re a little frightened or threatened by something as it makes us look bigger and more scary!
But we then had a lovely play together 🙂
But after a while, Robbie decided it was time for his cat-nap so we made sure we stayed behind and guarded the field…
But we’re quite peckish now after all that activity, so I think we’ll be going in soon to find out what’s for tea!
Well, the weekend is nearly upon us and normally my mummy would be really excited by that because it would mean that she’d have time to relax and not be at that funny place called “work”. But it’s a little different this week as she’s been on holiday from work, so that means that going back to work is now getting ever closer!
But she told me that she had loved having a week off and spending it with all us cats, and who could blame her? 😆
She hasn’t had great weather for her time off either, we’ve had lots of rain showers so she’s not been able to get outside much. Us cats have to take our chances whenever we can for a good play and run around as well. Although us Bengals don’t mind getting wet, we do prefer it when it’s dry as it’s so much easier to play 🙂
So in between the rain showers, we’ve been up to our usual tricks…
Playing in the field….
Eyeing up the birdies….
Climbing up the tree….
Trying to catch the fish….
But I think Robbie has the best idea – he just finds a sheltered spot (not me MOL) and watches the world go by from there…..
I think sometimes perhaps we should be a bit more chilled out like our Robbie cat…. we’d certainly save a bit of energy 😀
