Fur Babies

Ok, who has little furbies in their house?? Yep I do!! My friends used to call me the crazy lady 😂 because we had 3 cats. Until recently, we did have two cats and I was so hoping that this was going to be a happy post but sadly we lost our cute little Itch over the weekend.

This was our two cats only last week. A rare picture to capture but hey, it was a cold day so obviously they had the best spot in the house!!

We have Itch who was the Karate Kids cat. He was a really neat black and white cat and super long!! Now in case you are wondering why he was named Itch, well its simple. Itch means number one in Japanese. It’s not that he is itchy or anything – although he was allergic to flea bites. 😊

Itch was about 4 years old. We got him after we came back from Scotland a few years back. Because he’s quite long, I used to find him asleep on my bed very often (and take up half of it). Itch is also a scaredy cat 🙀 which is why I was really surprised to find that he was hit by a car. He is never really went out much and rarely left the safety of the garden. A bit sad really. He is missed already.

He used to snore too 😂😂

Let me introduce Tinsel. Now this one is trouble!! This is Miss Highland Dancer’s feline friend. She is 3 and is transgender 😂😇. We got her as a kitten just before Christmas 🎄 a couple of years back. We were told she was female but it wasn’t until she was named for a while before we found out that she was actually male. Tinsel stuck and so did ‘she’.

Tinsel is the hunter of the household. I don’t know how many times I actually have to chase her around with live or dead animals. Yes we love her but man- she loves to hunt! I often receive a headless corpse on the doormat or at times it’s just the head or maybe the entrails. Sometimes when I hang out the laundry or mow the lawns I will find the remains of some poor unsuspecting bird or mouse.

We are more likely to see her flying across the lawn after a bird, rat, mouse and at times another cat. She is often outside and only comes in when it’s really cold or if we’ve been away. The food dish isn’t as empty now that Itch has left us.

Right now though I keep finding her in Itch’s spot, she obviously misses him too!!!
Her playful side pops up every now and then so we have to watch out for claws!!!

She is such a playful cat. You may be walking through the house and suddenly this fur ball comes at you from nowhere. Or suddenly claws are attached to your leg. Classic!! You know the movie How to to train your dragon? Well she sorta walks like toothless- a kinda prancing movement often. I often think she should have a different name.

They joys of owning cats!! My husband thinks they are cute except of course when they poop 💩 outside his shed 😂

Well I thought I would just share my furbies with you both happy and sad moments. It sorta works as a remembrance of this little dude too!! Our pets often become such a big part of our family lives, what would we do without them really. I can tell you that its not until they are not there that you notice a difference!! Well I reckon I should sign off for today but let me leave you one last pic of Itch. Rest in peace man.
