Bedtime with Basil and Saffy

After a hard day's relaxing...



Basil and Saffy decide it's time to go to bed. The most important thing is to take up all of the space before the humans can get in.


Before bed, Basil likes to tell stories from his day.


Saffy listens intently to these...


But what she really wants to do is tell ghost stories! She preps the lighting...


Basil doesn't like ghost stories, he gets scared easily.


And has to get under his comfort blanket.


Saffy despairs of Basil's scaredy-cat ways and says he is a loser. She sulks and tells ghost stories to herself instead.

Boys will be Boys

Generally speaking, Basil is as good as gold. Never scratches or bites or anything like that. Around me at least. Sam Boy on the other hand loves getting him all over excited, and then acts surprised when he gets attacked...


Most of the time Basil is a very good boy though, helping with brainstorming...


Opening the post...


And helping with, umm, sleeping and things...


This is Saffy's reaction when asked to help around the house...


Ungrateful little Miss. She says she's far too busy being pretty...

Saffy Loves Radiator

Young Saffron spends a pretty significant portion of her day lounging around in the closest possible proximity to radiators:



It's important to get the best possible position:




Basil prefers our bed...

Basil is Gmork

I recently watched The Neverending Story with Basil and since then he's been practising his Gmork faces. Trust him to identify with the bad guy.

This still needs a bit of work to be honest:




Here's what he's aiming for:

Selfies with Saffy

Young Saffy is edging towards teenagerdom now, so of course, she's been roping us into taking selfies...


Some are more 'interesting' than others:


Very occasionally, Basil joins in too...


... but mostly he prefers to go solo. He said he's thinking about signing up for Cat Tinder and what did I think of these?




I told him I thought the last one was maybe a bit much. He's still working on his photography technique:

Winter is Coming

After a mild autumn, we're finally starting to feel the chill here in Hertfordshire. Basil and Saffy are in full winter mode, using any means they can to keep warm... beds, laps, patches of sunlight, piles of laundry etc...

Don't get me wrong, the heating has been on, but as a cat you can never really be too snuggly.

Judged

Basil and Saffy have been judging you...





... And you have been found wanting. Basil is very disappointed:
