Hello my friends, Spot here!
I hope you enjoyed reading the first part of our 2012 review 🙂 As promised, here’s part two which covers April to June 🙂
April brought lovely weather for the UK! It’s normally known as being the month of rain showers, but instead we had lots of sunshine (though weirdly we also had a day or two of snow earlier in the month!).
Lula made the most of the good weather by engaging in one of her favourite hobbies, chasing bugs and flies! Here she is eyeing up a tasty morsel 🙂
The great weather brought out Robbie’s stalking skills too – I love this photo of him and the cheeky glint in his eye! 🙂
Meanwhile, I enjoyed teasing the cows in the field behind our house! It’s a good job I can run quickly! 🙂
Lula and I had fun in the netting that daddy had put over the new grass seed to protect it! He wasn’t very happy when he caught us doing this with it!
We didn’t go to any cat shows in April, there just weren’t any suitable or close enough to us 🙂
So May arrived and we still enjoyed the freedom of the big field… here we are watching the world go by….
We loved to play in the field and would spend hours chasing each other around 🙂
But sometimes, I would have a quiet moment and reflect a little……
…… while Lula carried on her search for those elusive bugs! 🙂
We went to one cat show in May – the Midland Counties show. I didn’t do very well there, I came second in my breed class 🙁 Lula came first in hers though, and won her second Premier Certificate. She was beaten to Best of Breed by our older brother, Star !
Overall, it wasn’t a great show day, but we don’t expect glittering success at every show, so it wasn’t a problem 😉
Early in June, we had another cat show to go to – this time it was the Merseyside Cat Club show! Lula did fantastically well, coming first in all of her classes, so she had a “red card day” – I think you can see from this photo why it’s called that?
She also got her third Premier Certificate, so this meant she’d earned enough to be able to claim the title of Premier cat! 🙂
I didn’t do so well, unfortunately 🙁 I was a bit grumpy on the day and I came second in my breed class, though I did win one of my side classes 🙂
Back home, and Lula was back to her favourite hobby – you guessed it – chasing bugs! Can you see the one that got away in this pic? 🙂
Friday enjoyed sunning herself on the windowsill – she likes the warm weather now she is getting a bit older 🙂
Our Harry cat likes to keep an eye on the territory from the patio – he helps out if any other cats come into our garden and chases them away!
I was loving the amount of greenery around the pond, it meant there were lots of places to hide 🙂
But then – Oooooops! One day mummy came home from work and almost didn’t recognise me and Lula! We were not looking like Bengals at all! We were all black!!
Then mummy noticed all the cream carpets were black too…. and then some feathers by the side of the chimney!!
Yes, you guessed it! We’d both been up the chimney while our hoomins were out, chasing a birdie! It took TWO baths to get us clean-ish, but even then we still had soot residue in our fur…
Needless to say, the fireplace has been blocked up ever since then… Funny! 🙂
After trying out her skills, not very successfully I might add, as a chimney sweep, Lula decided that perhaps she ought to turn her attentions to cat burgling!
But she was caught in the act! 😀
I found a new friend to play with! This is one birdie I can catch! As long as he gets close enough that is! 🙂
Finally, at the end of a long day of play, it’s good to come home to a nice dinner and a little cat nap in one of our favourite beds 🙂
Wow! Quite a lot happened there in part two! Watch out for part three – coming to a computer screen near you very soon! 🙂
Take care my friends,
Love from Spot xxxx
