Cat Appreciation Day June 2016

Published June 20, 2016 by Storm

One of our precious felines has been unwell; he came home from the vets’ on Saturday and I’ve been nursing him at home since. As a result the fact that yesterday should have been Cat Appreciation Day rather passed me by. However, today  our little boy is so much better that it’s hard to believe 24 hours can make such a difference. I’m celebrating his path to recovery by making him the star of this month’s post (though because he likes to cuddle up with other cats as much as possible I have no photos of him on his own).


Delayed Cat Appreciation Day April 2016

Last Sunday should have been Cat Appreciation Day, but last weekend I was just too tired to think about posting. It turns out the delay may have it’s up side though, it means I can draw your attention to a kickstarter which is very much about appreciating cats… the guys behind The Citizens Advertising Takeover (CATS) are nothing to do with me, I just think it’s a great idea.

And now for three cats enjoying their bunk bed of boxes.

Pouncing and sleeping into 2015

He still looks small when he sits in a shopping bag…



… but the kitten is no longer the smallest cat.  Despite constant expenditure of energy, chasing the purple mice he got for Christmas (he now plays fetch which is adorable), he has outgrown our siamese boy and it won’t be long before he overtakes the seal-point lady either.


The adult cats are regularly exhausted by all the kitten’s play…


… very occasionally he exhausts himself as well.


The little cat said, “roll over”

I’m a day late appreciating cats this month, I got a little distracted by my first ever filet crochet project yesterday and forgot to post!

What I’d like to know is, if two cats fit so snugly in this basket…015

…why does the smallest cat barely fit on his own?


Here’s a bonus picture of our rapidly growing kitten, eyeing up my cup of tea.
