Aahhh! I love the sun on my face!

 

I hope you enjoyed reading the first part of our 2012 review ๐Ÿ™‚ As promised, here’s part two which covers April to June ๐Ÿ™‚

 

APRIL

Getting ready to catch that fly!

 

 

 

 

 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Robbie also loves to stalk!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The great weather brought out Robbie’s stalking skills too – I love this photo of him and the cheeky glint in his eye! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey there! I’m not afraid of you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meanwhile, I enjoyed teasing the cows in the field behind our house! It’s a good job I can run quickly! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oooh! My sister is scarier than the cows!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

MAY

Out in the plains….

 

 

 

 

 

So May arrived and we still enjoyed the freedom of the big field… here we are watching the world go by….

Hee-ya!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We loved to play in the field and would spend hours chasing each other around ๐Ÿ™‚

Reflecting….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But sometimes, I would have a quiet moment and reflect a little……

Where’s those bugs?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…… while Lula carried on her search for those elusive bugs! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this stinky sardine!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We went to one cat show in May – the Midland Counties show. ย I didn’t do very well there, I came second in my breed class ๐Ÿ™ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JUNE

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I didn’t do so well, unfortunately ๐Ÿ™ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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? ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday enjoyed sunning herself on the windowsill – she likes the warm weather now she is getting a bit older ๐Ÿ™‚

So much to see by the pond

I don’t like having a bath!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cat burglar!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m going to catch this birdie!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I found a new friend to play with! This is one birdie I can catch! As long as he gets close enough that is! ๐Ÿ™‚

Coming home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow! Quite a lot happened there in part two! Watch out for part three – coming to a computer screen near you very soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Take care my friends,

Love from Spot xxxx

  1. Oh Spot! I can see you keep Mummy and Daddy very busy! I really enjoyed your pictures and explanations. I think my favorite picture is of you and Lula that is titled “Hee-ya!”. You are jumping so high and the grin on Lula’s face is priceless. Thank you for sharing. I can’t wait for the next part.

    1. Thank you, Wilda! ๐Ÿ™‚ We do keep our mummy and daddy on their toes! We found it so difficult to choose which photos to post as there are so many that we liked, but we’re so pleased you liked the ones we did choose! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Some lovely pics of both you and as well as the rest of the cat family! My boy looks a bit like Robbie but a lighter color. You have a wonderful life and I think you know it! Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Carol! Yes, we are treated very well by our mummy and daddy ๐Ÿ™‚ They do stop us doing certain things, though, so they can be spoily-sports sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰ They say they’re doing it for our own good, but I’m not so sure… Sending you lots of purrs and kitty kisses! xoxox

  3. wonderful part 2 !! you had me laughing the entire time!!! I would have loved to see the ‘before your bath’ pics of the ‘chimney sweep’!! Seeing ‘black’ bengals would have bee a riot!! I also loved seeing Robbie, Harry and Friday as well. . . can’t wait for #3!!!! It’s ‘Monday’ for me. . . gotta work tonight!! Enjoy!! love, prayers, kitty kisses and haed bonks from all of us here!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks, Diane! My mummy didn’t get any “before” photos because as soon as she realised what we’d done – it was in slow motion, like it slowly dawned on her – she rushed us upstairs and straight into a bath! It wasn’t just the fact that we were leaving black splodgy marks all over the place, but she was actually concerned for our health ๐Ÿ™‚ But we were fine ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope work is OK for you! Kisses and head bonks to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx
