Night of the Sausages

I bought R some super large hot dogs which he didn’t think much to.  So with half the packet left over, I decided to put them out for the badgers.  This was the result, but not quite what we were expecting (click on the picture to see the video). I’ve no idea where the black […]

A Very Naughty Boy

R and I were having a coffee and a chat in the kitchen today when we heard an almighty crash from the other end of the house. We shot along to his office, passed by Schrodi streaking in the opposite direction. The sight we saw is in the photo. R has been collecting all the […]

How do they know?

What I want to know is, when two cats are asleep in an office right at the end of a large house, how do they know within 30 seconds when a chicken breast has been put into the microwave? However it is, they use the same mysterious power to detect when clean sheets or (better) […]

The Naughtiness of Cats

Advent Dec 11th – Two Beds

The two cats sound asleep in their beds in front of the fire. This is a rare event as normally there is a fight for one of the beds with the other one being quite ignored. Perhaps this is just peace on earth good will to all cats….

Advent 6th Dec – Christmas dinner for the Cats

Last year the crackers came with some name markers. I thought the cats might like their own – so this was their plate of smoked salmon. This was after they had finished their smoked salmon (I say “their” but Tora is actually not that fond of it).

Fox meets Cat

I’d been a bit bothered as to what would happen if our new visitor fox met the cats. Last night I found out from the webcam.. I’d put a bit of leftover roast pork out for the creatures, and just after 5am the fox found it. It was just starting to munch on it when […]

When the cats were young kittens they had their first Christmas in our town house in Edinburgh. As usual, we had a celebration trifle for our pudding on Christmas day, and as usual people were so stuffed after eating their turkey that there was loads left over. So my Mum put the whole bowl inside […]
