Flashforward Friday... New kitten imminent

The time machine is set for the other direction this week, with the stupendous news that we have just committed to adopt a new kitten! Yippee!

In the interest of minimising the possibility of death-by-Basil, we're going to get a female kitten, from this lovely brood here (apologies for the quality of the pics, not mine)...







We haven't chosen one yet, hoping to go and meet them next week, and our new little lady will be ready to come home just before Christmas. Best Christmas ever!!

We're still debating on a name. Have given up on the Herbs theme, as for a girl, there's not much choice. Current favourite is Molly. Any thoughts? Better suggestions? Answers on a postcard please.

More news on the new baby (and better photos I hope) to follow once we've been to visit.

What Basil has seen cannot be unseen

Dunno what he's looking at here, probably that girl from The Ring crawling out of the telly or something.



(He's not really traumatised, btw, this is just an unfortunate start-of-yawn face I think).

Flashback Friday: Just kittens

It's Flashback Friday! Today a couple of pics of Basil and Parsley at approx. 4 months old. Our lives were absolute chaos at this point. I loved it.

Woe is Basil

Basil has been cultivating a series of tragic and hard-done-by expressions this week.

The classic humph:


The 'What time do you call this?':


The 'Why are you hoovering here, I'm trying to sleep':


The 'I hate fireworks':


The 'What do you mean I'm looking a bit chunky lately?':


The 'How can you find that book more interesting than me?':


The 'Why can't I eat at the table too? Am I not a member of this family?':

Flashback Friday: Dapper Chaps

Here are Basil and Parsley looking rather fetching in their matching polkadot walking jackets.



This is in the garden of our previous property. We only lived there for about 6 months, so were reluctant to let the boys roam from there, as we'd be moving again so soon. The solution - these gorgeous jackets, and leads. As you can see, they were happy enough.

I suspect if I tried to put one of these on Basil now though, he'd have my face off.

Basil's week

Not a huge amount to report this week. Basil has been indoors a lot, disgruntled by the sudden, if tardy arrival of proper autumnal weather. Other than that, he got involved in a swearing match with a cat over the road at 1am, and has been resisting all attempts to have his claws trimmed.

That's about it. Here are some photos, on no particular theme...







Flashback Friday: Ol' Green Eyes

A blast from the past. Here's Parsley showing off his gorgeous green eyes to full effect.

Not sure how to define his expression here... Smug? Sardonic? Enigmatic? He's like some sort of feline Mona Lisa.
