Wordless Wednesday: Thank you!

Thank you for the lovely comments you all left us on our Gotcha Day post. We really appreciate your thoughts and we love you all. It's you who inspire us to blog, so thank you for that too! :) :)

Now, I may look slightly grumpy on this pic, but that's because I was fed up with feeling so hot. You see, we are just not used to the heat in England. Mum says we've had long hot summers before, but I'm only young so I don't know about that.

Mum had her camera set to macro because she had been out in the garden photographing flowers close-up. When she came back in she saw me on the coffee table drinking water out of my mug and I looked up and she took this. It was quite cloudy and dark so the flash fired (she very rarely uses flash because she knows how cats hate it). Good job I wasn't looking directly at the camera.

Thank You Lone Star Cats for this Lovely Award!



Thank you, Lone Star Cats for nominating me for the Shine On award.


Here are 7 Random Facts about myself.




  1. I don't like wet food and will eat only dry. Mum worries about me and has tried everything to get me to eat wet. I don't like it because I don't like to get my whiskers dirty.
  2. Because I don't eat normal wet cat food (though I used to eat the kitten variety when I was little because I was so starving when I got here), Mum calls me a vegetarian cat. Of course she knows that cats can't be veggie because it is harmful to our health, but she calls me that anyway. She would never feed me a vegetarian diet. She wants me to eat meat, even though she doesn't any more.
  3. I love cat grass (again, why my mum calls me veggie). It makes me feel so good! I don't care for catnip, though.
  4. I don't like to be away from my mum for long and hate being left alone in the house. This happens very rarely though.
  5. I don't want another cat living with us and hope Mum doesn't ever adopt another one. I want her all to myself. I'm sorry for the other kitties, but my mum is my mum and no one else's. I do try to help other kitties though by helping them find forever homes through my twitter and facebook, and this blog of course.
  6. I gave my mum the idea of writing my story in A Forever Home For Athena so we can help raise awareness and funds for animal rescue. 
  7. I like nothing better than to nap with my mum in the afternoons and sleep on her bed all night. It's my most favourite thing of all!
