It’s A Cat’s Life
It’s a cat’s life! How these cats lives have changed. They are now relaxed, feed, spayed and happy cats; a stark contrast to the scraggy, untrusting and hissy cats they were twelve months ago.
Two days ago I had no idea what photos I was going to use for my Sunday’s post and today I managed to get some decent-ish photos of the cats looking rather chilled out, plus some lovely photos of a couple of meaty looking geckos hanging around my parents front gate… It’s always the way!
I opted to share the photos of the cats, as they’ve been with us now for just over a year and my, how they’ve changed.
The Cat’s Twelve Months On
Twelve months ago Ugg turned up with her five feral kittens. Despite her look, she loves a good rub from me.
Purdey is Uggs one remaining kitten, she’s a hunter and seems to be doing a good job of keeping the rodent population down.
It’s a cat’s life! These two are so at home now they sleep solidly. Twelve months ago, whenever I went onto the balcony they disappeared into the woodpile. What a difference a year makes.
Purdey decides that Uggs ears are in need of a good clean. They have a close relationship, with Mother cat still calling and teaching Purdey how things are done. Since being spayed neither of them rarely wonder far. Up onto the roof is about as far as they go now, they can actually wake us up thundering around up there.
Are you pointing that camera at us? Can’t a cat do what cats do in peace?
Ugg seems to be enjoying her grooming session.
Purdey spent ages grooming Ugg, which was really cute to watch. I’m sure that either cat would be lost if something were to happen to the other one, but they live the good life now, so have no reason to wander far. Or at least I hope not.
Have you any feral or stray animals choose you as an ‘owner’? I use the term ‘owner’ loosely, as I am sure our cats would leave us just as quickly as they appeared if a better offer came up!
