As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued) and some other charities dear to our hearts.

Sunday Selfie and Christmas Friendly Fill-Ins

I'm a bit grumpy in this selfie because Mum was ignoring me with the computer. I'm sitting behind her as she writes at her desk. I am on the bed wanting some cuddles. Isn't it horrible when your human ignores you like this?


And now it's time for Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by 15andMeowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I really need to ___________________.
2. My favorite Christmas decoration is __________________________.

3. It’s beginning to look a lot like _________.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of _________.

Marie's answers:

1. I really need to stop stressing out.
2. My favourite Christmas decoration is a Swedish angel mobile you can see in this old post. It was a Christmas present from my brother when he moved to Sweden.
3. It's beginning to look a lot like winter. It's cold, windy and wet but without the beauty of snow in sight. It's set to get milder next week though. Christmas is always mild in England these days.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of chocolates. Too many! 

Athena's answers:

1. I really need to persuade Mum to sleep more so I can snuggle up close to keep warm.
2. My favourite Christmas decoration is a box. Mum thinks it might be this Christmas cat toy.
3. It's beginning to look a lot like it will rain.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of treats.

Caturday Art Christmas Selfies with Mum

Apologies for not being around much this past week but we've had a lot of stuff going on and those ridiculous ongoing problems with our pipes and drains. Nightmare city here! Hopefully, the problem has been sorted now but you never know with our luck :(

This has caused Mum and Granny to be upset and Mum has been having anxiety attacks. But she never forgets to take care of me no matter what. She puts me first like most Mums do for their kids.

I've been soothing both Mum and Granny with my purrs and hiding in Mum's bedroom when the plumbers came round.

As you would expect, Mum has had to do her art quickly this week and she's done this on her phone with the PhotoLab app. Then she went to PicMonkey and added some fancy text.

Cat Confidential #bookreview

Here is a great book for all cat lovers we'd love to tell you about.

Cat Confidential: expert advice on how to understand your furry feline by renowned cat counsellor Vicky Halls

From Amazon:

"You love your cat – and you hope your cat loves you too – but cats and their owners can often misunderstand each other. The cat says one thing and the owner hears another. Mostly, it feels right but, sometimes, something can go very wrong. How do you really know if your pampered pet wants a stroke behind the ears, or whether that insistent miaow is trying to communicate something more complex? If you’ve ever wondered why your cat does the things it does – soils in the house, picks a fight with the cat next door, feels nervous around strangers or destroys your furniture – then this is the book you have to read.
Renowned cat counsellor Vicky Halls has changed the lives of thousands of owners and their problem cats. Filled with intriguing case studies, amazing facts and practical advice, Cat Confidential answers all your questions so that you can understand your feline friend better. Fascinating, funny and heart-warming, it's your chance to explore the unique bond between you and your cat. Catisfaction guaranteed."
