Blackie is a faithful 3 year old domestic cat with great hunting ability. She lives in County Roscommon in the republic of Ireland where life is peaceful and slow for most. But if you are a bird or a mouse you’d better have your wits about you when Blackie is about! She is often seen depositing little presents on her cottage doorstep, accompanied by great howls of “look at me” and “a’rnt I a clever puss”.

Hey Osc, you could learn a thing or two from this here puss

Happy scrappy Christmas

In the doghouse at xmas

My human keepers are a little concerned that I am getting a bit chunky lately (hello…talk about pot and kettle!) so therefore my food is being carefully measured out into neat portions every day, to keep me on the straight and narrow.

The hunger pangs have become so bad that I have now had to take matters into my own paws by scouring the local neigbourhood to find bits ‘n dabs to supplement my enforced diet (…and it’s Christmas time too to boot…. Bah Humbug to the mean so’n so’s!)

No food up here

But what delights I have found and brought home? Bits (and sometimes even great chunks) of bread that the neighbours have left out for the birds (not that tasty but my it does fill my tum up nicely). No sooner have I gotten through the door with my spoil….that the said snack has been whipped off me tout-de-suite.

…or up here

Why, on this very day, when I reached up into the fridge and grabbed a small piece of chicken from my own special dish (which of course I recognise as ‘the blue stubby one’), I was told off in no uncertain terms and landed up in the dog house!

Still, I will never give up in my quest for more food – well I am a cat after all!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all you cats out there and may we all be fit and healthy enough to climb trees in 2017 to ours hearts content!

Merry Christmas Folks and Moggs … I just had a load o’ Turkey and now I’m sorted

Elegant Ebony

Cat of the Month ~ November 2016

Ebony the cat is a gorgeous girl who enjoys having a clean, glossy coat and if that means that her humans have to help with the beauty equipment well so be it.

A girl just has to grab the opportunity for a free treatment to look her best!

[ Warning: This is not recommended for your beloved cat of course. Ebony has become used to having her loose fur being sucked by a vacuum cleaner over many years – It could frighten a poor unsuspecting moggy!] ..
Well I know I wouldn’t like it but who is this ‘Ebony’, I’d like to meet her … sounds like my type? [Oscar]
